The Renyi entanglement entropy (REE) of the states excited by local operators in two-dimensional irrational conformal field theories (CFTs), especially in Liouville field theory (LFT) and N=1 super-Liouville field theory (SLFT), has been investigated. In particular, the excited states obtained by acting on the vacuum with primary operators were considered. We start from evaluating the second REE in a compact c=1 free boson field theory at generic radius, which is an irrational CFT. Then we…

A bstractWe study the time evolution of Renyi entanglement entropy for locally excited states in two dimensional large central charge CFTs. It generically shows a logarithmical growth and we compute

Entanglement entropy, OTOC and bootstrap in 2D CFTs from Regge and light cone limits of multi-point conformal block

TLDR
The structures of light cone and Regge limit singularities of n-point Virasoro conformal blocks in c > 1 two-dimensional conformal field theories with no chiral primaries are explored using fusion matrix approach, which shows that Renyi entropy grows logarithmically at late time, for any c and any conformal dimensions of excited primary.

Quantum Regge trajectories and the Virasoro analytic bootstrap

Entanglement Entropy after Double Excitation as an Interaction Measure.

TLDR
It is shown that the growth after the double local excitations in pure CFT is universal and is given by the sum of two local quenches with an additional negative term, which can be interpreted naturally in holography as being due to the attractive force of gravity.

Universal Dynamics in Non-Orientable CFT$_2$

Two-dimensional conformal field theories (CFTs) defined on non-orientable Riemann surfaces obey consistency Cardy conditions analogous to those in the orientable case. We revisit those conditions for

Analytic bootstrap in 2D boundary conformal field theory: towards braneworld holography

Abstract Recently, boundary conformal field theories (BCFTs) have attracted much attention in the context of quantum gravity. This is because a BCFT can be dual to gravity coupled to a heat bath

Rényi entropy of locally excited states with thermal and boundary effect in 2D CFTs

TLDR
It is shown that the time evolution of Rényi entropy is affected by the boundary, but does not depend on the boundary condition, and that the maximal value of Réneyi entropy always coincides with the log of quantum dimension of the primary operator.

Thermality and excited state Rényi entropy in two-dimensional CFT

TLDR
The results imply that the emergence of thermality depends on how refined the authors look into the entanglement structure of the underlying pure excited state.
