# Building up spacetime with quantum entanglement

@article{VanRaamsdonk2010BuildingUS, title={Building up spacetime with quantum entanglement}, author={Mark Van Raamsdonk}, journal={General Relativity and Gravitation}, year={2010}, volume={42}, pages={2323-2329} }

In this essay, we argue that the emergence of classically connected spacetimes is intimately related to the quantum entanglement of degrees of freedom in a non-perturbative description of quantum gravity. Disentangling the degrees of freedom associated with two regions of spacetime results in these regions pulling apart and pinching off from each other in a way that can be quantified by standard measures of entanglement.

The geodesic curvature of a convex curve is proposed as a local measure of factorization of the dual CFT state and its integral will be interpreted as computing the bipartite entanglement among degrees of freedom with support on the chosen domain.

The extent to which a number of related proposals that claim there is a link between spacetime topology and quantum entanglement can be understood as stating a duality is indicated, and two general approaches to articulating such aDuality are considered.
