Emergent Lorentz invariance from strong dynamics
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
AbstractCo-author: Sergey Sibiryakov (INR MNRAS Moscow)
I will discuss the phenomenon of emergent Lorentz invariance in strongly coupled theories, using the gauge/gravity correspondence to handle strong dynamics. The renormalization group flow towards Lorentz invariance is imprinted in the two-point functions of local operators and in the dispersion relations of the bound states. The deviations of these observables from the relativistic form at low energies are power-law suppressed by the ratio of the infrared and ultraviolet scales. I will comment on the implications for particle physics and condensed matter.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
