We consider subregion complexity within the AdS3/CFT2 correspondence. We rewrite the volume proposal, according to which the complexity of a reduced density matrix is given by the spacetime volume contained inside the associated Ryu‐Takayanagi (RT) surface, in terms of an integral over the curvature. Using the Gauss‐Bonnet theorem we evaluate this quantity for general entangling regions and temperature. In particular, we find that the discontinuity that occurs under a change in the RT surface… 

Holographic subregion complexity from kinematic space

A bstractWe consider the computation of volumes contained in a spatial slice of AdS3 in terms of observables in a dual CFT. Our main tool is kinematic space, defined either from the bulk perspective

Holographic complexity for defects distinguishes action from volume

A bstractWe explore the two holographic complexity proposals for the case of a 2d boundary CFT with a conformal defect. We focus on a Randall-Sundrum type model of a thin AdS2 brane embedded in AdS3.

A bstractWe study the null-boundaries of Wheeler-de Witt (WdW) patches in three dimensional Poincaré-AdS, when the selected boundary timeslice is an arbitrary (non-constant) function, presenting some

Complexity in the AdS/CFT correspondence

The main goal of this thesis is to carefully analyze aspects of the gravitational quantities conjectured to be dual to quantum complexity in the AdS/CFT correspondence. The two most promising

Renormalized holographic subregion complexity under relevant perturbations

We construct renormalized holographic entanglement entropy (HEE) and subregion complexity (HSC) in the CV conjecture for asymptotically AdS$_4$ and AdS$_5$ geometries under relevant perturbations.

Erratum to: Geometry and complexity of path integrals in inhomogeneous CFTs

Abstract In this work we develop the path integral optimization in a class of inhomogeneous 2d CFTs constructed by putting an ordinary CFT on a space with a position dependent metric. After setting

Volume complexity for Janus AdS3 geometries

Abstract We investigate the complexity=volume proposal in the case of Janus AdS3 geometries, both at zero and finite temperature. The leading contribution coming from the Janus interface is a

Generalized Volume-Complexity For Two-Sided Hyperscaling Violating Black Branes

In this paper, we investigate generalized volume-complexity C gen for a two-sided uncharged HV black brane in d +2 dimensions. This quantity which was recently introduced in [46], is an extension of

On volume subregion complexity in non-conformal theories

We study the volume prescription of the holographic subregion complexity in a holographic 5 dimensional model consisting of Einstein gravity coupled to a scalar field with a non-trivial potential.

Complexity change under conformal transformations in AdS3/CFT2

A bstractUsing the volume proposal, we compute the change of complexity of holographic states caused by a small conformal transformation in AdS3/CF T2. This computation is done perturbatively to

The Entanglement Renyi Entropies of Disjoint Intervals in AdS/CFT

We study entanglement Renyi entropies (EREs) of 1+1 dimensional CFTs with classical gravity duals. Using the replica trick the EREs can be related to a partition function of n copies of the CFT glued

On volumes of subregions in holography and complexity

A bstractThe volume of the region inside the bulk Ryu-Takayanagi surface is a codimension-one object, and a natural generalization of holographic complexity to the case of subregions in the boundary

Liouville action as path-integral complexity: from continuous tensor networks to AdS/CFT

An optimization procedure for Euclidean path-integrals that evaluate CFT wave functionals in arbitrary dimensions that resembles a continuous tensor network renormalization and provides a concrete realization of the proposed interpretation of AdS/CFT as tensor networks.

Anti-de Sitter Space from Optimization of Path Integrals in Conformal Field Theories.

A new optimization procedure for Euclidean path integrals, which compute wave functionals in conformal field theories (CFTs), is introduced and it is suggested that the optimization prescription is analogous to the estimation of computational complexity.

Entwinement and the emergence of spacetime

A bstractIt is conventional to study the entanglement between spatial regions of a quantum field theory. However, in some systems entanglement can be dominated by “internal”, possibly gauged, degrees

A bstractWe present a mathematical framework which underlies the connection between information theory and the bulk spacetime in the AdS3/CFT2 correspondence. A key concept is kinematic space: an

Equivalence of emergent de Sitter spaces from conformal field theory

A bstractRecently, two groups have made distinct proposals for a de Sitter space that is emergent from conformal field theory (CFT). The first proposal is that, for two-dimensional holographic CFTs,
