Quantization of the low temperature action in the SYK model
Josephine Suh, Postdoctoral Scholar in Theoretical Physics, Kitaev Group,

Abstract: At low temperatures the leading action in the Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev model is the Schwarzian functional of the trajectory of a particle in two-dimensional anti-de Sitter space (AdS_2). I will discuss the Hilbert space of single-particle wave functions, the density of states, and Green functions in AdS_2 resulting from quantizing this action.
