Theory Seminar by Prof. Dr. Anatoly Dymarsky (Kentucky)

April 4 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Speaker: Prof. Dr. Anatoly Dymarsky (University of Kentucky)

Title: KdV ETH in 2d CFT at finite c

Abstract: 2d conformal field theories in full generality admit an infinite tower of conserved charges, the so-called quantum KdV charges, which make the dynamics of stress-energy tensor integrable. An attempt to formulate Eigenstate Thermalization Hypothesis necessarily requires taking these conserved quantities into account, leading to the so-called generalized ETH, or “KdV ETH.” We discuss KdV ETH in a large but finite c limit, and find a novel crossover behavior when the ratio of system size to temperature L/\beta becomes comparable with c.
