# Hyperthreads in holographic spacetimes

@inproceedings{Harper2021HyperthreadsIH, title={Hyperthreads in holographic spacetimes}, author={Jonathan Harper}, year={2021} }

We generalize bit threads to hyperthreads in the context of holographic spacetimes. We define a “k-thread” to be a hyperthread which connects k different boundary regions and posit that it may be considered as a unit of k-party entanglement. Using this new object, we show that the contribution of hyperthreads to calculations of holographic entanglement entropy are generically finite. This is accomplished by constructing a surface whose area determines their maximum allowed contribution. We also… Expand

Bit Threads and Holographic Entanglement

- Mathematics, Physics
- 2016

The Ryu-Takayanagi (RT) formula relates the entanglement entropy of a region in a holographic theory to the area of a corresponding bulk minimal surface. Using the max flow-min cut principle, a… Expand

Bit Threads and Holographic Monogamy

Bit threads are used to prove the monogamy of mutual information property of holographic entanglement entropies, using the concept of a so-called multicommodity flow, adapted from the network setting, and tools from the theory of convex optimization. Expand

The AdS/CFT correspondence relates quantum entanglement between boundary Conformal Field Theories and geometric connections in the dual asymptotically Anti-de Sitter space-time. We consider entangled… Expand

Holography and Wormholes in 2+1 Dimensions

Abstract
The entanglement of purification (EoP), which measures the classical correlations and entanglement of a given mixed state, has been conjectured to be dual to the area of the minimal cross… Expand

We study holography for asymptotically AdS spaces with an arbitrary genus compact Riemann surface as the conformal boundary. Such spaces can be constructed from the Euclidean AdS_3 by discrete… Expand

Holographic Derivation of Entanglement Entropy from AdS/CFT

A holographic derivation of the entanglement entropy in quantum (conformal) field theories is proposed from AdS/CFT correspondence. We argue that the entanglement entropy in d+1 dimensional conformal… Expand

Multi-partite entanglement
