Entanglement in descendants

  title={Entanglement in descendants},
  author={Barsha G. Chowdhury and J. R. David},
We study the single interval entanglement and relative entropies of conformal descendants in 2d CFT. Descendants contain non-trivial entanglement, though the entanglement entropy of the canonical primary in the free boson CFT contains no additional entanglement compared to the vacuum, we show that the entanglement entropy of the state created by its level one descendant is non-trivial and is identical to that of the U(1) current in this theory. We determine the first sub-leading corrections to… Expand

Higher spin entanglement entropy from CFT
A bstractWe consider free fermion and free boson CFTs in two dimensions, deformed by a chemical potential μ for the spin-three current. For the CFT on the infinite spatial line, we calculate theExpand
Relative entanglement entropies in 1 + 1-dimensional conformal field theories
A bstractWe study the relative entanglement entropies of one interval between excited states of a 1+1 dimensional conformal field theory (CFT). To compute the relative entropy S(ρ1∥ρ0) between twoExpand
Holographic entanglement entropy from 2d CFT: heavy states and local quenches
A bstractWe consider the entanglement entropy in 2d conformal field theory in a class of excited states produced by the insertion of a heavy local operator. These include both high-energy eigenstatesExpand
Entanglement entropy of two disjoint intervals in conformal field theory II
We continue the study of the entanglement entropy of two disjoint intervals in conformal field theories that we started in J. Stat. Mech. (2009) P11001. We compute TrρA for any integer n for theExpand

We discuss the Renyi entanglement entropies of descendant states in critical one-dimensional systems with boundaries, that map to boundary conformal field theories in the scaling limit. We unify theExpand
Wilson lines and entanglement entropy in higher spin gravity
A bstractHolographic entanglement entropy provides a direct connection between classical geometry and quantum entanglement; however the usual prescription does not apply to theories of higher spinExpand

Correlation functions and quantum measures of descendant states
We discuss a computer implementation of a recursive formula to calculate correlation functions of descendant states in two-dimensional CFT. This allows us to obtain any N point function of vacuumExpand
Universal correction to higher spin entanglement entropy
We consider conformal field theories in 1 + 1 dimensions with W-algebra symmetries, deformed by a chemical potential mu for the spin-three current. We show that the order mu(2) correction to theExpand
A covariant holographic entanglement entropy proposal
