DESCRIPTION:Title: 1+1
d adjoint QCD and non-invertible topological lines\nby Kantaro Ohmori
(Simons Center for Geometry and Physics) as part of East Asian String Webi
nars\n\n\nAbstract\nIn ‘90s\, it is claimed that the QCD with massless a
djoint quark in 1+1-dimensions is confined\, although naively the fermions
cannot screen the Wilson line in the fundamental representation. In this
talk\, we will see that the confinement can be explained from the topologi
cal line operators live in the theory. In particular\, non-invertible topo
logical lines\, which do not correspond to a symmetry\, play a crucial rol
e. Based on a ongoing work with Zohar Komargodski\, Konstantinos Roumpedak
is and Sahand Seifnashri.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Ano
maly of the electromagnetic duality of Maxwell theory\nby Chang-Tse Hs
ieh (Kavli IPMU) as part of East Asian String Webinars\n\n\nAbstract\nEver
y physicist knows that the classical electromagnetism is described by Maxw
ell's equations and that it is invariant under the electromagnetic duality
S: (E\, B) → (B\, −E). However\, the properties of the electromagneti
c duality in the quantum theory might not be as well known to physicists a
nd are in fact not very well understood in the literature. Recently\, we u
ncovered a feature of Maxwell theory in the situation where going around n
ontrivial paths in the spacetime involves the action of the duality transf
ormation\, namely that it has a quantum anomaly. We found that the anomaly
of this system in a particular formulation is 56 times that of a Weyl fer
mion. Our result reproduces\, as a special case\, the known anomaly of the
all-fermion electrodynamics — a version of the Maxwell theory where par
ticles of odd (electric or magnetic) charge are fermions — discovered in
the last few years.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Qua
ntum Modularity from 3-Manifolds\nby Miranda Cheng (Univ. of Amsterdam
/National Taiwan University) as part of East Asian String Webinars\n\n\nAb
stract\nQuantum modular forms are functions on rational numbers that have
rather mysterious weak modular properties. Mock modular forms and false th
eta functions are examples of holomorphic functions on the upper-half plan
e which lead to quantum modular forms. Inspired by the 3d-3d correspondenc
e in string theory\, a new topological invariants named homological blocks
for (in particular plumbed) three-manifolds have been proposed a few year
s ago. My talk aims to explain the recent observations on the quantum modu
lar properties of the homological blocks\, as well as the relation to loga
rithmic vertex algebras. The talk will be based on a series of work in col
laboration with Sungbong Chun\, Boris Feigin\, Francesca Ferrari\, Sergei
Gukov\, Sarah Harrison\, and Gabriele Sgroi.\n

n dynamical systems is a question of interest to physicists across energy
scales. Inspired by classical chaos\, which addresses this question quite
successfully in classical physics\, out of order time correlators (OTOC) h
ave been considered a promising approach for quantum systems. In this talk
\, I will first discuss the relation between scrambling (as defined by exp
onential growth of OTOC) and chaos in the semiclassical regime\, and show
that they can differ qualitatively (joint work with Tianrui Xu andThomas S
caffidi). In a second part\, I will discuss scrambling in a family of gene
ralized Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev models\, which are arguably more realistic\, and
which allow us to clarify the behavior of the Lyapunov exponent in non-ma
xically chaotic Fermi and non-Fermi liquids (joint work with Jaewon Kim an

nby Julian Sonner (U. Geneva) as part of East Asian String Webinars\n\n\nA
bstract\nQuantum chaotic systems are often defined via the assertion that
their spectral statistics coincides with\, or is well approximated by\, ra
ndom matrix theory. In this talk I will explain how the universal content
of random matrix theory emerges as the consequence of a simple symmetry-br
eaking principle and its associated Goldstone modes. Within AdS/CFT this g
ives a universal framework to express correlations between "different univ
erses"\, even for individual theories rather than ensembles. I will illust
rate the bulk picture of this EFT using the example minimal string theory.
I will end by discussing the construction of the EFT of quantum chaos als
o in higher dimensional field theories\, as applicable for example for hig
her-dimensional AdS/CFT dual pairs.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Ref
lected entropy for an evaporating black hole\nby Yang Zhou (Fudan Univ
.) as part of East Asian String Webinars\n\n\nAbstract\nBlack hole informa
tion paradox is a problem over 40 years. Recent progress shows hint toward
s a new understanding of the black hole interior as part of the Hawking ra
diation\, which they called island. In particular the island formula for t
he Von Neumann entropy of Hawking radiation is consistent with unitarity.
In this talk I will discuss how to extract more information of the island
by computing the correlation in Hawking radiation. In particular we study
reflected entropy (as a correlation measure of mixed states) and propose a
quantum extremal surface for reflected entropy. Based on that\, we find a
formula for reflected entropy with island cross section as its area term
in gravitational system.\n

ries and new mathematical structures that are completely invisible in the
standard approach of Lagrangians and Feynman diagrams. Inspired by these d

, I will describe the conceptual foundations of the "cosmological bootstra
p” as developed together with Arkani-Hamed\, Lee and Pimentel in [arXiv:
1811.00024]. In the second part\, I will describe the extension of these i

DESCRIPTION:Title: Ad
ventures in Non-Supersymmetric String Theory\nby Justin Kaidi (Simons
Center\, Stony Brook) as part of East Asian String Webinars\n\n\nAbstract\
nIt has long been known that there exist strings with supersymmetry on the
world sheet\, but not in spacetime. These include the well-known Type 0 s
trings\, as well as a series of seven heterotic strings\, all of which are
obtained by imposing unconventional GSO projections. Besides these classi
c examples though\, relatively little is known about the full space of non
-SUSY theories. One of the reasons why non-SUSY strings have remained unde
rstudied is the fact that nearly all of them have closed string tachyons\,
and hence do not admit ten-dimensional flat space as a stable vacuum. The
goal of this talk is two-fold. First\, using recent advances in condensed
matter theory\, we will reinterpret GSO projections in terms of topologic
al phases of matter\, thereby providing a framework for the classification
of non-SUSY strings. Having done so\, we will show that for all non-SUSY
theories in which a tachyon exists\, it can be condensed to give a stable
lower-dimensional vacuum. In many cases\, these stable vacua will be two-d
imensional string theories already known in the literature.\n

ct\nI will discuss the problem of bounding higher derivative couplings in

be general assumptions about analyticity and Regge growth of the S-matrix.
Higher derivative couplings are expected to be of order one in the units
of the UV cutoff. Our approach justifies this expectation and allows us to
prove precise bounds on the order one coefficients. I will explain that t
he notorious difficulties presented by the graviton pole can be overcome b
y measuring couplings at small impact parameter\, rather than in the forwa

calar coupled to gravity\, and in theories with maximal supersymmetry. My

s\n\n\nAbstract\nEntanglement plays a crucial role in questions pertaining
to the emergence and dynamics of bulk spacetime. The proposal of Ryu and
Takayanagi\, which relates the entanglement entropy of a boundary region t
o the area of a codimension-two bulk surface\, has been crucial to this ef
fort. However\, holographic entanglement can also be formulated using `bit
threads'\, i.e.\, divergenceless\, norm-bounded vector fields. In this ta

encoded in bit threads and how to understand bulk metric reconstruction i

ayama (UC Berkeley / Kavli IPMU) as part of East Asian String Webinars\n\n
\nAbstract\nI present some exact results in QCD-like chiral gauge theories
. They are exact when supersymmetric gauge theories are perturbed by anoma
ly-mediated supersymmetry breaking (AMSB). Thanks to the UV-insensitivity
of AMSB\, SUSY results can be perturbed with no ambiguities even when appl
ied to composite fields. I find two phases for QCD-like theories\, one wit
h chiral symmetry breaking and another conformal. Our results for chiral g
auge theories do not agree with what had been suggested by tumbling. We su
ggest alternative schemes of tumbling-like interpretations. We see no evid
ence that large SUSY breaking leads to phase transitions\, perhaps protect
ed by holomorphy.\n
