Local subsystems in gauge theory and gravity

- William Donnelly, L. Freidel
- Physics
- 18 January 2016

A bstractWe consider the problem of defining localized subsystems in gauge theory and gravity. Such systems are associated to spacelike hypersurfaces with boundaries and provide the natural setting… Expand

Decomposition of entanglement entropy in lattice gauge theory

- William Donnelly
- Physics
- 31 August 2011

We consider entanglement entropy between regions of space in lattice gauge theory. The Hilbert space corresponding to a region of space includes edge states that transform nontrivially under gauge… Expand

Geometric entropy and edge modes of the electromagnetic field

- William Donnelly, Aron C. Wall
- Physics
- 18 June 2015

We calculate the vacuum entanglement entropy of Maxwell theory in a class of curved spacetimes by Kaluza-Klein reduction of the theory onto a two-dimensional base manifold. Using two-dimensional… Expand

Diffeomorphism-invariant observables and their nonlocal algebra

- William Donnelly, S. Giddings
- Physics
- 28 July 2015

Gauge-invariant observables for quantum gravity are described, with explicit constructions given primarily to leading order in Newton's constant, analogous to and extending constructions first given… Expand

Entanglement entropy and nonabelian gauge symmetry

- William Donnelly
- Physics
- 27 June 2014

Entanglement entropy has proven to be an extremely useful concept in quantum field theory. Gauge theories are of particular interest, but for these systems the entanglement entropy is not clearly… Expand

Coupling the inflaton to an expanding aether

- William Donnelly, T. Jacobson
- Physics
- 15 July 2010

We consider a Lorentz-violating theory of inflation consisting of Einstein-aether theory with a scalar inflaton coupled bilinearly to the expansion of the aether. We determine the conditions for… Expand

Electromagnetic Duality and Entanglement Anomalies

- William Donnelly, B. Michel, Aron C. Wall
- Physics
- 17 November 2016

Duality is an indispensable tool for describing the strong-coupling dynamics of gauge theories. However, its actual realization is often quite subtle: quantities such as the partition function can… Expand
