Comments on wormholes and factorization

  title={Comments on wormholes and factorization},
  author={Phil Saad and Stephen H. Shenker and Shunyu Yao},
In AdS/CFT partition functions of decoupled copies of the CFT factorize. In bulk computations of such quantities contributions from spacetime wormholes which link separate asymptotic boundaries threaten to spoil this property, leading to a"factorization puzzle."Certain simple models like JT gravity have wormholes, but bulk computations in them correspond to averages over an ensemble of boundary systems. These averages need not factorize. We can formulate a toy version of the factorization… Expand
Gravity factorized
We find models of two dimensional gravity that resolve the factorization puzzle and have a discrete spectrum, whilst retaining a semiclassical description. A novelty of these models is that theyExpand
Interacting systems and wormholes
We consider a class of tripartite systems for which two d-dimensional QFTs are cross-coupled via a third d+ 1-dimensional “messenger” QFT. We analyse in detail the example of a pair ofExpand
Microstructure in matrix elements
We investigate the simple model of Pennington, Shenker, Stanford and Yang for modeling the density matrix of Hawking radiation, but further include dynamics for EOW branes behind the horizon. ThisExpand
FZZT branes in JT gravity and topological gravity
Abstract We study Fateev-Zamolodchikov-Zamolodchikov-Teschner (FZZT) branes in Witten-Kontsevich topological gravity, which includes Jackiw-Teitelboim (JT) gravity as a special case. Adding FZZTExpand

We investigate 2D topological gravity theories with matter fields turned on. We compute correlators of boundary creation operators with extra matter insertions. We provide a systematic procedure toExpand
Page curve from dynamical branes in JT gravity
We study the Page curve of an evaporating black hole using a toy model given by Jackiw-Teitelboim gravity with Fateev-Zamolodchikov-Zamolodchikov-Teschner (FZZT) antibranes. We treat the anti-FZZTExpand
