A bstractIn this paper, we study a possibility where gravity and time emerge from quantum matter. Within the Hilbert space of matter fields defined on a spatial manifold, we consider a sub-Hilbert space spanned by states which are parameterized by spatial metric. In those states, metric is introduced as a collective variable that controls local structures of entanglement. The underlying matter fields endow the states labeled by metric with an unambiguous inner product. Then we construct a… 
A model of quantum gravity with emergent spacetime
We construct a model of quantum gravity in which dimension, topology and geometry of spacetime are dynamical. The microscopic degree of freedom is a real rectangular matrix whose rows label internal
State dependent spread of entanglement in relatively local Hamiltonians
A bstractRelatively local Hamiltonians are a class of background independent non-local Hamiltonians from which local theories emerge within a set of short-range entangled states. The dimension,
Clock-dependent spacetime
Abstract Einstein’s theory of general relativity is based on the premise that the physical laws take the same form in all coordinate systems. However, it still presumes a preferred decomposition of
Information propagation in a non-local model with emergent locality
Abstract In this paper, we revisit a “relatively local” model proposed in [1], where locality and dimensionality of space only emerges from the entanglement structure of the state the system is in.
Global symmetries, hidden sectors and emergent (dark) vector interactions
Hidden theories coupled to the SM may provide emergent (dark) vectors, that are composites/bound-states of the hidden fields. This is motivated by paradigms emerging from the AdS/CFT correspondence
Emergent gravity from hidden sectors and TT deformations
We investigate emergent gravity extending the paradigm of the AdS/CFT correspondence. The emergent graviton is associated to the (dynamical) expectation value of the energy-momentum tensor. We derive
Lorentz violation, quantum tunneling, and information conservation *
In this paper, by introducing a Lorentz-invariance-violation (LIV) class of dispersion relations (DR) suppressed by the second power $(E/E_{QG})^2$, we have investigated the effect of LIV on the
Entanglement transfer from quantum matter to classical geometry in an emergent holographic dual description of a scalar field theory
Applying recursive renormalization group transformations to a scalar field theory, we obtain an effective quantum gravity theory with an emergent extra dimension, described by a dual holographic


A covariant holographic entanglement entropy proposal
With an aim towards understanding the time-dependence of entanglement entropy in generic quantum field theories, we propose a covariant generalization of the holographic entanglement entropy proposal
Exact holographic mapping and emergent space-time geometry
In this paper, we propose an {\it exact holographic mapping} which is a unitary mapping from the Hilbert space of a lattice system in flat space (boundary) to that of another lattice system in one
Quantum Gravity at a Lifshitz Point
We present a candidate quantum field theory of gravity with dynamical critical exponent equal to $z=3$ in the UV. (As in condensed-matter systems, $z$ measures the degree of anisotropy between space

The possible quantum states of these closed universes, which correspond to wormholes which connect two asymptotically Euclidean regions, are described.
General covariance from the quantum renormalization group
The Quantum renormalization group (QRG) is a realisation of holography through a coarse graining prescription that maps the beta functions of a quantum field theory thought to live on the `boundary'
Dynamical Structure and Definition of Energy in General Relativity
The problem of the dynamical structure and definition of energy for the classical general theory of relativity is considered on a formal level. As in a previous paper, the technique used is the
Background independent holographic description: from matrix field theory to quantum gravity
A bstractWe propose a local renormalization group procedure where length scale is changed in spacetime dependent way. Combining this scheme with an earlier observation that high energy modes in
Generalized gravitational entropy
A bstractWe consider classical Euclidean gravity solutions with a boundary. The boundary contains a non-contractible circle. These solutions can be interpreted as computing the trace of a density
Horizon as critical phenomenon
A bstractWe show that renormalization group flow can be viewed as a gradual wave function collapse, where a quantum state associated with the action of field theory evolves toward a final state that
