Quantum focusing conjecture
We propose a universal inequality that unies the Bousso bound with the classical focussing theorem. Given a surface that need not lie on a horizon, we dene a nite generalized entropy Sgen as the areaExpand

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

Disrupting Entanglement of Black Holes
We study entanglement in thermofield double states of strongly coupled conformal field theories by analyzing two-sided Reissner-Nordstrom solutions in anti–de Sitter space. The central object ofExpand

Consistent effective theory of long-wavelength cosmological perturbations
Effective field theory provides a perturbative framework to study the evolution of cosmological large-scale structure. We investigate the underpinnings of this approach, and suggest new ways toExpand

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

TensorNetwork for Machine Learning
TLDR
We demonstrate the use of tensor networks for image classification with the TensorNetwork open source library with out-of-the-box performance of 98% and 88%. Expand

Null Geodesics, Local CFT Operators and AdS/CFT for Subregions
We investigate the nature of the AdS/CFT duality between a subregion of the bulk and its boundary. In global AdS/CFT in the classical G_N=0 limit, the duality reduces to a boundary value problem thatExpand

Entanglement Tsunami in (1+1)-Dimensions
We study the time dependence of the entanglement entropy of disjoint in- tervals following a global quantum quench in (1+1)-dimensional CFTs at large-c with a sparse spectrum. The result agrees withExpand

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 Focusing Conjecture Has Not Been Violated
Recent work of Fu, Koeller, and Marolf shows that in $d\geq 5$ dimensions a nonzero Gauss-Bonnet coupling of either sign can lead to a pointwise violation of the Quantum Focusing Conjecture. ThisExpand
