Talk by Kyriakos Papadodimas - CANCELLED

"Emergent Spacetime and Holographic CFTs"

What are the general physical principles behind the AdS/CFT correspondence? In my talk I will try to address this question by analyzing the conditions under which a conformal field theory admits a holographic desctiption as a gravitational theory in anti-de Sitter space. I will review how the bulk emerges as an effective description of a small sector of the conformal field theory.
