We study operator complexity on various time scales with emphasis on those much larger than the scrambling period. We use, for systems with a large but finite number of degrees of freedom, the notion of K-complexity employed in arXiv:1812.08657 for infinite systems. We present evidence that K-complexity of ETH operators has indeed the character ass...

Separation of variables (SoV) is a special property of integrable models which ensures that the wavefunction has a very simple factorised form in a specially designed basis. Even though the factorisation of the wavefunction was recently established for higher rank models by two of the authors and G. Sizov, the measure for the scalar product was not...

Two-dimensional CFTs and integrable models have an infinite set of conserved KdV higher spin currents. These currents can be argued to remain conserved under the $T\bar{T}$ deformation and its generalizations. We determine the flow equations the KdV charges obey under the $T\bar{T}$ deformation: they behave as probes "riding the Burgers flow" of th...

We use the variational principle approach to derive the large $N$ holographic dictionary for two-dimensional $T\bar T$-deformed CFTs, for both signs of the deformation parameter. The resulting dual gravitational theory has mixed boundary conditions for the non-dynamical graviton; the boundary conditions for matter fields are undeformed. When the ma...

In generic conformal field theories with $W_3$ symmetry, we identify a primary field $\sigma$ with rational Kac indices, which produces the full $\mathbb{Z}_3$ charged and neutral sectors by the fusion processes $\sigma \times \sigma$ and $\sigma \times \sigma^*$, respectively. In this sense, this field generalises the $\mathbb{Z}_3$ fundamental sp...

Employing the conformal welding technique, we find an exact expression for the Full Counting Statistics of energy transfers in a class of inhomogeneous nonequilibrium states of a (1+1)-dimensional unitary Conformal Field Theory. The expression involves the Schwarzian action of a complex field obtained by solving a Riemann-Hilbert type problem relat...

We perform Monte-Carlo computations of four-point cluster connectivities in the critical 2d Potts model, for numbers of states $Q\in (0,4)$ that are not necessarily integer. We compare these connectivities to four-point functions in a CFT that interpolates between D-series minimal models. We find that 3 combinations of the 4 independent connectivit...

We study superconformal deformations of the $T_\rho^{\hat\rho}[SU(N)]$ theories of Gaiotto-Hanany-Witten, paying special attention to mixed-branch operators with both electrically- and magnetically-charged fields. We explain why all marginal ${\cal N}=2$ operators of an ${\cal N}=4$ CFT$_3$ can be extracted unambiguously from the superconformal ind...

I compare two holographic mechanisms giving to the graviton a parametrically-small supersymmetric mass $m_g$ in Anti-de Sitter spacetime. In the context of bi-metric gravity these mechanisms couple `weakly' two initially decoupled superconformal theories by: (i) turning on a double-trace deformation, or (ii) gauging a common global symmetry. Superc...

Korchemsky, G.P.

The energy-energy correlation (EEC) measures the angular distribution of the energy that flows through two calorimeters separated by some relative angle in the final state created by a source. We study this observable in the limit of small and large angles when it describes the correlation between particles belonging, respectively, to the same jet ...
