Joint High Energy Physics Seminars: "Duality and the Entanglement wedge in ADS/CFT"

Evidence has gradually accumulated that in
AdS/CFT, any spatial subregion of the CFT
has complete quantum information about
some subregion of the bulk
spacetime. Exactly which bulk subregion
this is has been a matter of some debate,
which has focused on the "causal wedge"
and the "entanglement wedge" as the
primary candidates. In this talk I will present
a few theorems which together essentially
resolve this debate in favor of the
entanglement wedge. The argument
combines recent work on quantum
corrections to the Ryu-Takayanagi formula
with the idea that the correspondence can
be interpreted as a quantum error-
correcting code.
