We merge together recent developments in the S-matrix bootstrap program to develop a dual setup in 2 space-time dimensions incorporating scattering amplitudes of massive particles and matrix elements of local operators. In particular, the stress energy tensor allows us to input UV constraints on IR observables in terms of the central charge cUV of ...

A key issue in both the field of quantum chaos and quantum gravity is an effective description of chaotic conformal field theories (CFTs), that is CFTs that have a quantum ergodic limit. We develop a framework incorporating the constraints of conformal symmetry and locality, allowing the definition of ensembles of `CFT data'. These ensembles take o...

The quantum Hall physics of bilayer graphene is extremely rich due to the interplay between a layer degree of freedom and delicate fractional states. Recent experiments show that when an electric field perpendicular to the bilayer causes Landau levels of opposing layers to cross in energy, a even-denominator Hall plateau can coexist with a finite d...

High-resolution angle- and spin-resolved photoemission spectroscopy reveals new features of the electronic structure of the ferromagnetic triple-layered ruthenate Sr$_4$Ru$_3$O$_{10}$. There are narrow spectral peaks $\sim$30 meV below the Fermi-level in two regions of the Brillouin zone: a hole-like band at the zone-center and a saddle-point van H...

We show that holographic thermal two-sided two-point correlators take the form of a product over quasi-normal modes (QNMs). Due to this fact, the two-point function admits a natural dispersive representation with a positive discontinuity at the location of QNMs. We explore the general constraints on the structure of QNMs that follow from the operat...

We derive exact results for the Lindblad equation for a quantum spin chain (one-dimensional quantum compass model) with dephasing noise. The system possesses doubly degenerate nonequilibrium steady states due to the presence of a conserved charge commuting with the Hamiltonian and Lindblad operators. We show that the system can be mapped to a non-H...

Determining the (bare) electron mass m_0 in crystals is often hindered by many-body effects since Fermi-liquid physics renormalises the band mass, making the observed effective mass m* depend on density. Here, we use a one-dimensional (1D) geometry to amplify the effect of interactions, forcing the electrons to form a nonlinear Luttinger liquid wit...

It has been proposed that the exponential decay and subsequent power law saturation of out-of-time-order correlation functions can be universally described by collective 'scramblon' modes. We develop this idea from a path integral perspective in several examples, thereby establishing a general formalism. After reformulating previous work on the Sch...

A central property of Chern insulators is the robustness of the topological phase and edge states to impurities in the system. Despite this, the Chern number cannot be straightforwardly calculated in the presence of disorder. Recently, work has been done to propose several local analogs of the Chern number, called local markers, that can be used to...

We explore 4d Yang-Mills gauge theories (YM) living as boundary conditions of 5d gapped short/long-range entangled (SRE/LRE) topological states. Specifically, we explore 4d time-reversal symmetric pure YM of an SU(2) gauge group with a second-Chern-class topological term at $\theta=\pi$ (SU(2)$_{\theta=\pi}$ YM), by turning on background fields for...
