Proof of the Quantum Null Energy Condition
We prove the quantum null energy condition (QNEC), a lower bound on the stress tensor in terms of the second variation in a null direction of the entropy of a region. The QNEC arose previously as aExpand

Holographic Proof of the Quantum Null Energy Condition
We use holography to prove the quantum null energy condition (QNEC) at leading order in large N for CFTs and relevant deformations of CFTs in Minkowski space which have Einstein gravity duals. GivenExpand

Violating the quantum focusing conjecture and quantum covariant entropy bound in d >= 5 dimensions
Author(s): Fu, Zicao; Koeller, Jason; Marolf, Donald | Abstract: We study the Quantum Focussing Conjecture (QFC) in curved spacetime. Noting that quantum corrections from integrating out massiveExpand

Geometric Constraints from Subregion Duality Beyond the Classical Regime
Subregion duality in AdS/CFT implies certain constraints on the geometry: entanglement wedges must contain causal wedges, and nested boundary regions must have nested entanglement wedges. WeExpand

The Quantum Null Energy Condition in Curved Space
The quantum null energy condition (QNEC) is a conjectured bound on components $(T_{kk} = T_{ab} k^a k^b$) of the stress tensor along a null vector $k^a$ at a point $p$ in terms of a secondExpand

Local modular Hamiltonians from the quantum null energy condition
The vacuum modular Hamiltonian $K$ of the Rindler wedge in any relativistic quantum field theory is given by the boost generator. Here we investigate the modular Hamiltoninan for more generalExpand

Title The quantum null energy condition in curved space Permalink
The quantum null energy condition (QNEC) is a conjectured bound on components (Tkk = Tabk k) of the stress tensor along a null vector k at a point p in terms of a second k-derivative of the vonExpand
Lepton-flavored asymmetric dark matter and interference in direct detection
In flavored dark matter models, dark matter can scatter off of nuclei through Higgs and photon exchange, both of which can arise from renormalizable interactions and individually lead to strongExpand

The Quantum Focussing Condition and Quantum Null Energy Condition
Author(s): Koeller, Jason | Advisor(s): Bousso, Raphael | Abstract: Evidence has been gathering over the decades that spacetime and gravity are best understood as emergent phenomenon, especially inExpand
