DESCRIPTION:Title: Bending the Padic Tensor Network and Emergent Einstein Equation\n
by Ling-Yan (Janet) Hung (Fudan University) as part of Workshop on Quantum
Information and Spacetime\n\nLecture held in Wolfensohn Hall.\n\nAbstract
\nWe take the tensor network describing explicit p-adic CFT partition func
tions proposed in 1902.01411\, and consider boundary conditions of the net
work describing a deformed Bruhat-Tits (BT) tree geometry. We demonstrate
that this geometry satisfies an emergent graph Einstein equation in a uniq
ue way that is consistent with the bulk effective matter action encoding t
he same correlation function as the tensor network\, at least in the pertu
rbative limit order by order away from the pure BT tree. Moreover\, the (p
erturbative) definition of the graph curvature in the Mathematics literatu
re naturally emerges from the consistency requirements of the emergent Ein
stein equation. The emergent "metric" in the tenor network can be interpre
ted as a Fisher information between states.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Quantum Complexity of Experiments\nby Jordan Cotler (Harvard Univ
ersity) as part of Workshop on Quantum Information and Spacetime\n\nLectur
e held in Wolfensohn Hall.\n\nAbstract\nWe introduce a theoretical framewo
rk to study experimental physics using quantum complexity theory. This all
ows us to address: what is the computational complexity of an experiment?
For several 'model' experiments\, we prove that there is an exponential sa
vings in resources if the experimentalist can entangle apparatuses with ex
perimental samples. A novel example is the experimental task of determinin
g the symmetry class of a time evolution operator for a quantum many-body
system. Some of our complexity advantages have been realized on Google's S
ycamore processor\, demonstrating a real-world advantage for learning algo
rithms with a quantum memory.\n

tract\nIn 2017\, Adam Brown and Lenny Susskind posed two conjectures about
quantum complexity\, the difficulty of preparing a desired many-body stat
e from a simple tensor product: (1) Under chaotic evolutions\, complexity
grows linearly for a time exponential in the system size. (2) A resource t
heory for uncomplexity can be defined. (Resource theories are simple model
s\, developed in quantum information theory\, for situations in which cons
traints restrict the operations one can perform. Uncomplexity is a lack of
complexity\, useful in inputs to quantum computations.) We prove both con
jectures correct\, using tools from quantum information theory\, algebraic
geometry\, and differential topology.\nReferences:\n1) Haferkamp\, Faist\

eorghiu (ETH Zurich) as part of Workshop on Quantum Information and Spacet
ime\n\nLecture held in Wolfensohn Hall.\n\nAbstract\nComputing the entropy
of probability distributions and quantum states is a fundamental task in
information processing. In this talk I'll discuss recent work with Matty H
oban (arXiv:2002.12814) in which we show that estimating the entropy of qu
antum states (or probability distributions) produced by shallow quantum ci
rcuits is at least as hard as the Learning-With-Errors problem\, and thus
believed to be intractable for efficient quantum computation. This shows t
hat circuits do not need to be complex to render the computation of entrop
y a difficult task. We also give complexity-theoretic evidence that the pr
oblem is not as hard as its counterpart with general polynomial-size circu
its\, seemingly occupying an intermediate hardness regime. As a potential
application to quantum gravity research\, we relate these results to the c
omplexity of the bulk-to-boundary dictionary of AdS/CFT.\n

h it is known that AdS/CFT as a quantum erasure correction code is only ap
proximate\, there is still much to learn about the precise bulk physical c

\, I will take initial steps in addressing this gap of knowledge and discu

DESCRIPTION:Title: Lorentzian Threads and Holographic Complexity\nby Juan Pedraza (U
niversity of Barcelona) as part of Workshop on Quantum Information and Spa
cetime\n\nLecture held in Wolfensohn Hall.\n\nAbstract\nThe continuous min
flow-max cut principle is used to reformulate the 'complexity=volume' con
jecture using Lorentzian flows. Conceptually\, discretized flows are inter
preted in terms of `gatelines'\, one-dimensional time-like curves that con
nect layers of a tensor network grid in the bulk spacetime. We imagine eac
h gateline represents a unitary operation such that the bulk calculation f
or complexity matches its information-theoretic definition. The bulk sympl
ectic potential provides a 'canonical' flow configuration characterizing p
erturbations around arbitrary CFT states. Its consistency requires the bul
k to obey linearized Einstein's equations\, which are shown to be equivale
nt to the holographic first law of complexity\, thereby advocating a notio
n of 'spacetime complexity'. Finally\, we explain the need for a more gene
ral measure of complexity that captures the role of suboptimal flows or te
nsor network configurations. Based on 2105.12735 and 2106.12585.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Topological Pseudo Entropy\nby Tatsuma Nishioka (Yukawa Institute

m Information and Spacetime\n\nLecture held in Wolfensohn Hall.\n\nAbstrac
t\nRecently\, a new quantum information measure called pseudo entropy was
introduced as a generalization of entanglement entropy to quantify quantum
correlation between initial and final states in a time-dependent system.
In this talk\, I will examine some aspects of pseudo entropy in topologica
l field theory and conformal field theory (CFT). In three-dimensional Cher
n-Simons theory\, pseudo entropy can be given by a partition function on a
three-sphere with Wilson loops in a similar manner to topological entangl
ement entropy. I will also show that the pseudo entropy in a certain setup
is equivalent to the interface entropy in two-dimensional CFTs\, and leve
rage the equivalence to calculate the pseudo entropies in particular examp
les. Furthermore\, I will define a pseudo entropy extension of the left-ri
ght entanglement entropy in two-dimensional boundary CFTs and derive a uni
versal formula for a pair of arbitrary boundary states.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Branching Time in SYK-like Models\nby Pengfei Zhang (Caltech) as
part of Workshop on Quantum Information and Spacetime\n\nLecture held in W
olfensohn Hall.\n\nAbstract\nThe branching time in SYK-like models is defi
ned as the average time separation of rungs when computing the out-of-time
-order correlator. We argue that a parametrically large branching time is
necessary to obtain holographic models with non-trivial bulk dynamics. In
this work\, we establish a bound on the branching time for SYK-like models
. Thus\, such models are unlikely candidates for sub-AdS holography. We al
so derive a relation between the branching time\, the Lyapunov exponent\,
and the quasiparticle lifetime in the weak coupling limit.\n

olfensohn Hall.\n\nAbstract\nIn this talk I will discuss models of two-dim
ensional gravity that resolve the factorization puzzle and have a discrete
spectrum\, whilst retaining a semiclassical description. A novelty of the
se models is that they contain non-trivially correlated spacetime branes o
r\, equivalently\, nonlocal interactions in their action. Demanding factor
ization fixes almost all brane correlators\, and the exact geometric expan
sion of the partition function collapses to only two terms: the black hole
saddle and a subleading "half-wormhole" geometry\, whose sum yields the d
esired discrete spectrum. Non-perturbatively\, the correlated branes are a
certain multitrace interaction and I will show how it results in a factor
izing theory with discrete spectrum. I will end with a few comments on the
relevance of wormholes and higher dimensions.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Failure of the Split Property in Gravity and the Information Paradox
\nby Suvrat Raju (International Centre for Theoretical Sciences\, Beng
aluru) as part of Workshop on Quantum Information and Spacetime\n\nLecture
held in Wolfensohn Hall.\n\nAbstract\nIn an ordinary quantum field theory
\, the "split property" implies that the state of a system can be specifie
d independently on a bounded subregion of a Cauchy slice and its complemen
t. This property does not hold for theories of gravity. It can be shown in
specific examples that observables near the boundary of a Cauchy slice un
iquely fix the state on the entire slice. The original formulation of the
information paradox explicitly assumed the split property and we follow th
is assumption to isolate the precise error in Hawking's argument. A simila
r assumption also underpins the monogamy paradox of Mathur and AMPS. Final
ly the same assumption is used to support the common idea that the entangl
ement entropy of the region outside a black hole should follow a Page curv
e. It is for this reason that recent computations of the Page curve have b
een performed only in nonstandard theories of gravity\, which include a no
ngravitational bath and massive gravitons. We discuss possibilities for co
arse graining that might lead to a Page curve in standard theories of grav
ity.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Scattering Strings Off Quantum Extremal Surfaces\nby Adam Levine
(Institute for Advanced Study) as part of Workshop on Quantum Information
and Spacetime\n\nLecture held in Wolfensohn Hall.\n\nAbstract\nI will dis
cuss recent work on a Hayden & Preskill like setup for both maximally chao
tic and sub- maximally chaotic quantum field theories. I will discuss comp
utations of various quantum information measures on the boundary that tell
us when a particle has left the entanglement wedge of a given region. In
a maximally chaotic theory\, these measures indicate a sharp transition wh
ere the particle enters the wedge exactly when the insertion is null separ
ated from the quantum extremal surface for r. For sub-maximally chaotic th
eories\, we find a smoothed crossover at a delayed time given in terms of
the smaller Lyapunov exponent and dependent on the time-smearing scale of
the probe excitation. I will speculate on the extent to which our results
reveal properties of the target of the probe excitation as a “stringy qu
antum extremal surface” or simply quantify the probe itself thus giving
a new approach to studying the notion of longitudinal string spreading.\n

nLecture held in Wolfensohn Hall.\n\nAbstract\nWe study the fluctuation en
tropy for two-dimensional matter systems with an internal symmetry coupled
to Jackiw--Teitelboim(JT) gravity joined to a Minkowski region. The fluct
uation entropy is the Shannon entropy associated with probabilities of fin
ding a particular charge in a region. We first consider a case where the m
atter has a global symmetry. We find that the fluctuation entropy of Hawki
ng radiation shows an unbounded growth and exceeds the entanglement entrop
y in the presence of islands. This indicates that the global symmetry is v
iolated. We then discuss the fluctuation entropy for matter coupled to a t
wo-dimensional gauge field. We find a lower bound on the gauge coupling g_
0 in order to avoid a similar issue. Also\, we point out a few puzzles rel
ated to the island prescription in presence of a gauge symmetry.\nBased on
