Wormholes without averaging
Douglas Stanford, Stanford University,

Disorder-averaged SYK has a collective field description that contains "wormhole" solutions. With fixed couplings, one can continue to use this collective field description. We show that the wormhole solutions survive intact in the non-averaged theory, but there are also new "half wormhole" contributions from elsewhere in the integration space. Based on work to appear with Saad, Shenker, Yao.
