  • Lowe, David A.; Thorlacius, Larus (Springer Nature, 2018-01)
    Holographic theories representing black holes are expected to exhibit quantum chaos. We argue if the laws of quantum mechanics are expected to hold for observers inside such black holes, then such holographic theories must have a mean field approximation ...
  • Amado, Irene; Sundborg, Bo; Thorlacius, Larus; Wintergerst, Nico (Springer Nature, 2018-03)
    The emergent nature of spacetime geometry and black holes can be directly probed in simple holographic duals of higher spin gravity and tensionless string theory. To this end, we study time dependent thermal correlation functions of gauge invariant ...
