# Holographic geometry and noise in matrix theory

@article{Hogan2009HolographicGA, title={Holographic geometry and noise in matrix theory}, author={Craig Hogan and Mark G. Jackson}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2009}, volume={79}, pages={124009} }

Using matrix theory as a concrete example of a fundamental holographic theory, we show that the emergent macroscopic spacetime displays a new macroscopic quantum structure, holographic geometry, and a new observable phenomenon, holographic noise, with phenomenology similar to that previously derived on the basis of a quasimonochromatic wave theory. Traces of matrix operators on a light sheet with a compact dimension of size $R$ are interpreted as transverse position operators for macroscopic…
