Isomonodromy as a Tool: Classical Conformal Blocks and Black Hole Quasinormal Modes

Speaker: Fábio Novaes

Date/Time: Wednesday, January 17, 2018, 16:00


In this seminar, we discuss two interesting applications of the theory of isomonodromic deformations: the calculation of classical conformal blocks and quasinormal modes of black holes. The first application can be useful to calculate entanglement entropy in the AdS3/CFT2 correspondence at large central charge. The second application is a new method to calculate quasinormal modes. As an example, we show how to calculate quasinormal modes of the 4-dimensional Kerr-de Sitter black hole. Finally, we also discuss how isomonodromic deformations can shed some light on the relation between c=\infty and c=1 conformal blocks.
