Fast Scramblers
We consider the problem of how fast a quantum system can scramble (thermalize) information, given that the interactions are between bounded clusters of degrees of freedom; pairwise interactions wouldExpand

Generalized AdS–CFT correspondence for Matrix theory in the large-N limit
Abstract Guided by the generalized conformal symmetry, we investigate the extension of AdS–CFT correspondence to the matrix model of D-particles in the large-N limit. We perform a complete harmonicExpand

From Supermembrane to Matrix String
Abstract We develop a systematic method of directly embedding supermembrane wrapped around a circle into matrix string theory. Our purpose is to study connection between matrix string and membraneExpand

Direct test of the gauge-gravity correspondence for Matrix theory correlation functions
A bstractWe study correlation functions in (0 + 1)-dimensional maximally supersym-metric U(N ) Yang-Mills theory, which was proposed by Banks et al. as a non-perturbative definition of 11-dimensionalExpand

Holographic framework for eternal inflation
In this paper we provide some circumstantial evidence for a holographic duality between bubble nucleation in an eternally inflating universe and a Euclidean conformal field theory (CFT). TheExpand

Monte Carlo studies of matrix theory correlation functions.
We study correlation functions in (0+1)-dimensional maximally supersymmetric U(N) gauge theory, which represents the low-energy effective theory of D0-branes. In the large-N limit, the gauge-gravityExpand

Penrose Limit and String Theories on Various Brane Backgrounds
We investigate the Penrose limit of various brane solutions including Dp-branes, NS5-branes, fundamental strings, (p,q) fivebranes and (p,q) strings. We obtain special null geodesics with the fixedExpand

Future foam: Nontrivial topology from bubble collisions in eternal inflation
We study pocket universes which have zero cosmological constant and nontrivial boundary topology. These arise from bubble collisions in eternal inflation. Using a simplified dust model of collisionsExpand

Census Taking in the Hat: FRW/CFT Duality
In this paper a holographic description of eternal inflation is developed. We focus on the description of an open Friedmann-Robertson-Walker (FRW) universe that results from a tunneling event inExpand

Equilibration in low-dimensional quantum matrix models
A bstractMatrix models play an important role in studies of quantum gravity, being candidates for a formulation of M-theory, but are notoriously difficult to solve. In this work, we present a freshExpand
