Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev Model as a Liouville Quantum Mechanics

Monday, April 17, 2017 - 2:30pm

I will discuss Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev model of N randomly interacting Majorana fermions. It was recently coined as a possible toy model of AdS-CFT correspondence. I argue that it's low-energy limit is described by an effective quantum mechanics and explore some consequences of this observation.
