SUMMARY:No Page curves for the de Sitter horizon\, Theory Seminar (Hig
h Energy/Cosmology)\, Evita Verheijden\, University of Amsterdam
DESCRIPTION:One of the greatest puzzles in our universe\, which can --
to good approximation -- be described by de Sitter space\, is a prope
r understanding of the cosmological horizon that surrounds any observe
r. Over the past few years\, a semi-classical approach involving quant
um extremal surfaces and so-called ‘islands’ has been very success
ful to increase our understanding of the black hole information proble
m\; in light of these advancements\, it could prove fruitful to undert
ake a similar approach to investigate an evaporating de Sitter horizon
. In this talk I will consider such an approach for two-dimensional de
Sitter space. Starting from three-dimensional de Sitter space\, I wil
l show how a partial dimensional reduction supplies 2D JT de Sitter wi
th an auxiliary system acting as a heat bath. I will then contrast the
time-dependent entropy of radiation collected by an observer at futur
e infinity with that collected by an observer inside the static patch.
Central to the analysis in the static patch is the identification of
a weakly-coupled region close to the cosmological horizon. I will high
light how backreaction considerations crucially obstruct both observer
s from witnessing unitary evaporation.
