### High Energy Theory Seminar – External Speakers

VirtualIn selected weeks, we will have formal seminar talks by external speakers. All other talks in the HEP seminar are held by students for students. Clearly, faculty members will also participate. The format is informal. The talks are 45 minutes long, plus 15 minutes of discussion time.

Virtual### High Energy Theory Seminar – Prof. Dr. Robert Myers (Perimeter Institute)

VirtualSpeaker: Prof. Dr. Robert Myers (Perimeter Institute, Canada) Title: Quantum Extremal Islands Made Easy Abstract: We illustrate the appearance of quantum extremal islands in holographic setups in higher dimensions. We emphasize the close parallel with the behaviour of holographic entanglement entropy in more familiar settings. https://vimeo.com/542234841 Back to HEP Seminar: https://physics.ua.edu/high-energy-theory-seminar/

### HEP-Seminar: Prof. Dr. Michal Heller (Ghent University)

VirtualHolographic complexity proposals are interesting because, on one hand, they express universal properties of black hole interiors and, on the other, they go beyond the area-centric view on quantum gravity. Prof. Heller will talk about recent progress in that area.

### HEP Seminar – Prof. Raman Sundrum (University of Maryland) – Spring 2023

GL 310 Tuscaloosa, AL, United StatesProf. Sundrum, famous for his work on extra-dimensions (Randall-Sundrum model) is going to talk about cosmology and unification.

### HEP Seminar by Prof. Dr. Mark Srednicki (UCSB)

GL 310 Tuscaloosa, AL, United StatesProf. Dr. Mark Srednicki will discuss Quantum Chaos and the Foundations of Statistical Mechanics, and Eigenstate Thermalization. Understanding the emergence of the rules of statistical mechanics for an isolated many-body system from an underlying quantum-mechanical microdynamics is a longstanding problem of fundamental physics.

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

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
