Wilson Lines and Entanglement Entropy in Higher Spin Gravity

  title={Wilson Lines and Entanglement Entropy in Higher Spin Gravity},
  author={Martin Matthias Ammon and Alejandra Castro and Nabil Iqbal},
Holographic entanglement entropy provides a direct connection between classical geometry and quantum entanglement; however the usual prescription does not apply to theories of higher spin gravity, where standard notions of geometry are no longer gauge invariant. We present a proposal for the holographic computation of entanglement entropy in field theories dual to higher spin theories of gravity in AdS3. These theories have a Chern-Simons description, and our proposal involves a Wilson line in… CONTINUE READING
