    High Energy Theory Seminar
    “The Quantum Null Energy Condition from Causality”

    Location: Bloomberg Lecture Hall
    Time: 2:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Thomas Faulkner, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

    Description: I will present a general argument for the local bound on the null-null component of the stress tensor in a QFT called the Quantum Null Energy Condition. The argument involves the study of correlation functions of operators undergoing modular evolution associated to sub-regions of the QFT. Causality constrains this modular evolution which in AdS/CFT is related to the requirement of entanglement wedge nesting - a property fundamental to the study of subregion duality.
