Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev Model as a Lioville 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 its low-energy limit is described by an effective quantum mechanics and explore
some consequences of this observation.
