Dr. Mario Flory (Instituto de Fisica Teorica, Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Spain)
via Zoom

In this talk, I will give an introduction to the holographic principle and the Anti-de Sitter/Conformal Field Theory (AdS/CFT) correspondence. I will also discuss the role that quantum entanglement plays in this correspondence via the Ryu-Takayanagi formula which maps the calculation of entanglement entropy to a geometric problem of extremal surfaces. Then, I will present a holographic model of a Kondo like effect as an example of how the AdS/CFT correspondence can be employed in practice.
