Abstract

© 2017, Springer International Publishing AG. As we have remarked earlier, it is rather remarkable that an intrinsically quantum concept such as entanglement has a very simple geometric dual. Part of the reason of course is that for planar field theories with ceff ≫ 1, one essentially attains a classical limit. Nevertheless, it is intriguing that there is a close connection between geometric concepts in the bulk and quantum features of the boundary theory. One therefore naturally wonders whether this fact can be leveraged to learn how the holographic map between quantum field theories and gravitational dynamics actually works.
