Deriving the WGC from holographic entanglement entropy
Time: 11:00 am
Place: 5310 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Miguel Montero, KU Leuven
Abstract: The Weak Gravity Conjecture (WGC) is a proposed constraint on effective field theories that can be consistently coupled to quantum gravity, requiring the presence of superextremal particles. This particles allow extremal black holes to decay, but so far the relationship has only been understood heuristically. I will explain how this connection can be made precise, in the context of asymptotically AdS quantum gravity: The black hole must be allowed to decay to comply with quantum information theorems in the dual CFT. I will discuss the connection to the ER=EPR proposal and how this avenue can lead to new Swampland constraints.
