Moving the CFT into the bulk with TT¯$$ T\overline{T} $$

- Lauren McGough, M'ark Mezei, H. Verlinde
- Physics
- 3 April 2018

A bstractRecent work by Zamolodchikov and others has uncovered a solvable irrelevant deformation of general 2D CFTs, defined by turning on the dimension 4 operator TT¯$$ T\overline{T} $$,the product… Expand

A refinement of entanglement entropy and the number of degrees of freedom

- H. Liu, M'ark Mezei
- Physics
- 9 February 2012

A bstractWe introduce a “renormalized entanglement entropy” which is intrinsically UV finite and is most sensitive to the degrees of freedom at the scale of the size R of the entangled region. We… Expand

Semi-local quantum liquids

- N. Iqbal, H. Liu, M'ark Mezei
- Physics
- 23 May 2011

A bstractGauge/gravity duality applied to strongly interacting systems at finite density predicts a universal intermediate energy phase to which we refer as a semi-local quantum liquid. Such a phase… Expand

Quantum phase transitions in semilocal quantum liquids

- N. Iqbal, H. Liu, M'ark Mezei
- Physics
- 27 January 2015

We consider several types of quantum critical phenomena from finite-density gauge-gravity duality which to different degrees lie outside the Landau-Ginsburg-Wilson paradigm. These include: (i) a… Expand

Monopole operators in U(1) Chern-Simons-matter theories

- Shai M. Chester, Luca V. Iliesiu, M'ark Mezei, S. Pufu
- Physics
- 2 October 2017

A bstractWe study monopole operators at the infrared fixed points of U(1) Chern-Simons-matter theories (QED3, scalar QED3, N=1$$ \mathcal{N}=1 $$ SQED3, and N=2$$ \mathcal{N}=2 $$ SQED3) with N… Expand

Entanglement growth after a global quench in free scalar field theory

- Jordan S. Cotler, Mark P. Hertzberg, M'ark Mezei, M. Mueller
- Physics
- 3 September 2016

A bstractWe compute the entanglement and Rényi entropy growth after a global quench in various dimensions in free scalar field theory. We study two types of quenches: a boundary state quench and a… Expand

Bit Threads and the Membrane Theory of Entanglement Dynamics

- C. Ag'on, M'ark Mezei
- Physics
- 28 October 2019

Recently, an effective {\it membrane theory} was proposed that describes the ``hydrodynamic'' regime of the entanglement dynamics for general chaotic systems. Motivated by the new {\it bit threads}… Expand

Pole skipping away from maximal chaos

- Changha Choi, M'ark Mezei, G'abor S'arosi
- Physics
- 16 October 2020

Pole skipping is a recently discovered subtle effect in the thermal energy density retarded two point function at a special point in the complex ( ω, p ) planes. We propose that pole skipping is… Expand

Monopole operators from the 4 − ϵ expansion

- Shai M. Chester, M'ark Mezei, S. Pufu, Itamar Yaakov
- Physics, Mathematics
- 22 November 2015

A bstractThree-dimensional quantum electrodynamics with N charged fermions contains monopole operators that have been studied perturbatively at large N . Here, we initiate the study of these monopole… Expand
