In conformal quantum mechanics with the vacuum of a real scaling dimension and with a complete orthonormal set of energy eigenstates which is preferable under the unitary evolution, the dilatation expectation value between energy eigenstates monotonically decreases along the flow from the UV to the IR. In such conformal quantum mechanics there exist bounds on scaling dimensions of the physical states and the gauge operators.

Conformal quantum mechanics as a Floquet-Dirac system

Conformal quantum mechanics has been proposed to be the CFT1 dual to AdS2. The N -point correlation function that satisfy conformal constraints have been constructed from a non-conformal vacuum and

We revisit conformal quantum mechanics (CQM) from the perspective of sine-square deformation (SSD) and the entanglement Hamiltonian. The operators that correspond to SSD and the entanglement

Conformal mechanical treatment of Calogero-Moser model and infinite dimensional Lie algebra of conformal Galilei type

We present a relationship between the Calogero-Moser particles confined in harmonic oscillator potentials and a representation theory of the infinite dimensional Lie algebra which is a semi-direct

Conformal quantum mechanics of causal diamonds

It is shown that a general radial conformal Killing vector in Minkowski space-time can be associated to a generator of time evolution in conformal quantum mechanics. Among these conformal Killing

Symmetry enhancement in RCFT II

We explain when and why symmetries enhance in fermionic rational conformal field theories. In order to achieve the goal, we first clarify invariants under renormalization group flows. In particular, we

A consistent QM / NCG duality is put forward as a model for the AdS 2 / CFT 1 correspondence. This is a duality/correspondence between 1) the dAFF conformal quantum mechanics (QM) on the boundary

Cosmology as a CFT1

Abstract We show that the simplest FLRW cosmological system consisting in the homo- geneous and isotropic massless Einstein-Scalar system enjoys a hidden conformal symmetry under the 1D conformal

Whittaker vector, Wheeler-DeWitt equation, and the gravity dual of conformal quantum mechanics

We study the energy representation of conformal quantum mechanics as the Whittaker vector without specifying classical Lagrangian. We show that a generating function of expectation values among two

Entanglement entropy and negative energy in two dimensions

It is well known that quantum effects can produce negative energy densities, though for limited times. Here we show in the context of two-dimensional CFT that such negative energy densities are
