De Sitter space and the Double-scaled Limit of SYK

Leonard Susskind – Stanford University

Location:  Zoom
Date & time: Wednesday, 08 March 2023 at 10:45AM - 11:45AM

Abstract: We know a lot about Quantum Gravity in Anti de Sitter space and almost nothing about QG in the cosmologically more relevant case of de Sitter space. Part of the problem is the lack of a concrete example analogous to the AdS/CFT duality. In my talk I explain a conjecture; namely that the so-called Double-scaled Limit of SYK is a holographic description of a specific example of de Sitter space.
