In this talk, Rob Myers (Perimeter Institute) examines a new class of gravitational observables in asymptotically AdS space associated with codimension-one slices or with codimension-zero regions motivated by holographic complexity. Rob argues that any of these observables is an equally viable candidate as the extremal volume for a gravitational dual of complexity.
The Virtual Seminar Series “GQFI-Ghent University-Warsaw String Theory” (GQFI-UGent-WST) is a joint initiative between the strings/holography groups at the Albert Einstein Institute (AEI) in Potsdam, Ghent University and the University of Warsaw. The calendar for upcoming GQFI-UGent-WST seminars can be found here:
