2/25 Jahn Y306 Computing minimal surfaces in AdS4 using finite elements
In this talk, I will present my own work on holographic entanglement entropy for local quenches in AdS/CFT, studied analytically by Nozaki et al. ( arXiv:1302.5703). For a number of interesting configurations, exact solutions are not possible and traditional numerical approaches are unstable. I present an approach based on the finite-element method, which relies on optimizing a discretized mesh, to compute minimal surfaces along an arbitrary one-dimensional boundary in AdS4.
