Wednesday 29th May : STP Seminar – Microscopic description of Schwarzschild black hole from quantum field theory

Title: Microscopic description of Schwarzschild black hole from quantum field theory

Speaker: Prof. Masanori Hanada (Kyoto University)

Abstract: The gauge/gravity duality relates black hole and QFT. In particular, the 'small black hole' in AdS5*S5, which is essentially the Schwarzschild black hole with negative specific heat, should be described by 4d maximal super Yang-Mills theory. But how can such an exotic object be described by healthy QFT? How can the negative specific heat arise? In this talk, we propose a simple mechanism: partial deconfinement, i.e. SU(M) in SU(N), with M
