DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Nicola Pinamonti ()\nDuring this talk we shall discu
ss some properties of the semiclassical Einstein equation.\nThis equation
is used to model the backreaction of quantum matter on classical backgroun
ds.\nIn this talk we shall in particular analyze the case of backgrounds w
hich describe cosmological spacetimes.\nThe quantum field we shall conside
r is massive and satisfies a linear equation with a generic coupling to th
e scalar curvature.\nWe observe that a nonlocal term with higher order der
ivatives is present in the expectation value of the matter stress tensor w
hich sources gravity.\nThis term prevents a direct analysis of that equati
on\, we show how to deal with it in order to put the semiclassical equatio
n in a form which can then be treated with Banach fixed point methods.\n\n

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Robert Wald (University of Chicago)\nWe show that if
a massive body is put in a quantum superposition of spatially separated s
tates\, the mere presence of a black hole in the vicinity of the body will
eventually destroy the coherence of the superposition. This occurs becaus
e\, in effect\, the gravitational field of the body radiates soft graviton
s into the black hole\, allowing the black hole to harvest "which path'' i
nformation about the superposition. A similar effect occurs for quantum su
perpositions of electrically charged\nbodies. The effect is very closely r
elated to the memory effect and infrared divergences at null infinity.\n\n

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Veronica Hubeny ()\nMotivated by a long-standing aim
to understand the emergence of spacetime and its relation to entanglement
in the context of gauge/gravity duality\, we study the relations between
subsystem entanglement entropies. These quantities are delimited by the s
o-called holographic entropy cone\, characterized conveniently by holograp
hic entropy inequalities or alternately by certain extreme states. This c
onstruct reveals a surprisingly rich structure\, whose intricacy grows rap
idly with the number of subsystems. We review recent progress in understa
nding the holographic entropy cone\, both from the perspective of the defi
ning inequalities as well as from that of the extreme rays\, both of which
seem to hint at a deeper organizational principle.\n\nhttps://indico.tpi.

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Akihiro Ishibashi ()\nWe consider how to formulate s
emiclassical problems in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence\, based
on the proposal of Compere and Marolf [arXiv:0805.1902]. Our prescription
involves the effective action with self-action term for boundary dynamica
l fields\, which can be viewed as imposing mixed boundary conditions for t
he gravity dual. We derive the semiclassical Einstein equations sourced by
boundary CFT stress-energy tensor. Analyzing perturbations of the hologra
phic semiclassical Einstein equations\, we find a universal parameter whic
h controls the contribution from boundary CFTs and specifies dynamics on t
he AdS boundary. As a simple example\, we examine the semiclassical Einste
in equations in 3-dimensions with 4-dimensional AdS gravity dual\, and sho
w that the boundary BTZ black hole with vanishing expectation value of the
stress-energy tensor becomes unstable due to the backreaction from quantu
m stress-energy tensor when the parameter exceeds a certain critical value

pplied to the scalar field and compute both the\nvacuum (v.e.v.) and therm
al (t.e.v.) expectation values of the RSET. When either\nDirichlet or Neum
ann boundary conditions are applied\, the v.e.v of the RSET is a\nmultiple
of the space-time metric. Applying Robin boundary conditions break the un

varies with\nthe space-time position. However\, for all Robin boundary con

ly flat FLRW spacetimes are conformally flat. This work examines entanglem
ent harvesting from the conformal field vacuums in these spacetimes betwee
n two Unruh-DeWitt detectors\, moving along outgoing null trajectories. In
(1+1) dimensional Schwarzschild spacetime\, we considered the Boulware an
d Unruh vacua for our investigations. In this analysis\, one observes that
while entanglement harvesting is possible in (1+1) dimensional Schwarzsch
ild and (1+3) dimensional de Sitter spacetimes\, it is not possible in the
(1+1) dimensional de Sitter background for the same set of parameters whe
n the detectors move along the same outgoing null trajectory. The qualitat
ive results from the Boulware and the Unruh vacuums are alike. Furthermore
\, we observed that the concurrence depends on the distance *d* between th
e two null paths of the detectors periodically\, and depending on the para
meter values\, there could be entanglement harvesting shadow points or reg

techniques. To search for an optimal setup\, we compute the logarithmic n
egativity of two oscillators with arbitrary quadratic potential and couple
d by gravity. We find that unstable inverted oscillators generate gravity-
induced entanglement most quickly and are most resistant to decoherence fr
om environmental fluctuations. As such an example\, we propose an experime

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Youka Kaku (Nagoya university)\nThe construction of
a quantum gravity theory remains a challenge. One of the difficulties stem
s from the lack of sufficient experimental evidence. As a first step towar
d the quantum gravity experiment\, Bose et al. proposed a low-energy exper
iment to test if Newtonian gravity can generate quantum entanglement or no
t. However\, they assumed that only gravity is mediating in the system\, a
nd their proposals fail when other quantum interactions come into play.\nT
o overcome this issue\, we explore an alternative experimental setup that
can distinguish gravity-induced entanglement and entanglement resulting fr
om other interactions. Specifically\, we investigate an interference exper
iment of a quantum clock particle that feels a weak gravitational field as
well as Coulomb potential. As a result\, we find that the interference do
es not recohere only when gravity induces entanglement\, while other cases
exhibit periodic decoherence and recoherence. Furthermore\, we discuss th
e deep connection between our experimental setup and the weak equivalence
principle.\nThis talk is based on the collaborated work with Y. Nambu\, S.

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Alessandro Monteverdi (University of Sheffield)\nSom
e of the quantum properties of rotating black holes in (3+1)-dimensional s
pacetimes remain unresolved. However\, studying higher-dimensional cases m
ay provide insight into their behaviour. In this talk\, we investigate the
behaviour of a massive scalar field in a Kerr-AdS (4+1)-dimensional space
time. Specifically\, we focus on the existence of a Hartle-Hawking state\,
which is a vacuum state with important properties\, such as being a therm
al and Hadamard state\, which means that it is well-behaved and has a fini
te energy density.\nWhile the Hartle-Hawking state has been studied in var
ious types of black holes\, our focus is on rotating black holes where we
have observed a correlation between the presence of the light surface and
the existence of the Hartle-Hawking state. It should be noted that the Har
tle-Hawking state does not exist in Kerr black holes\, but it does exist i
n Kerr-AdS black holes. In four dimensions\, the analysis of this state is
very challenging\, but in five dimensions\, the enhanced symmetry of the
system simplifies the analysis. Finally\, by using the Hartle-Hawking stat
e\, we also present a method for evaluating observables\, starting with th
e vacuum polarization.\n\nhttps://indico.tpi.uni-jena.de/event/289/contrib

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Markus B. Fröb (ITP\, Universität Leipzig\, German
y)\nThe role of entropy\, in particular entanglement entropy\, in quantum
field theory has become increasingly prominent\, and entropy has appeared
in relation with several primary research topics in QFT: area theorems\, c
theorems\, the AdS/CFT correspondence\, quantum null energy inequalities
etc. While von Neumann entropy\, the basic concept in information theory\,
is divergent in QFT and can thus only be defined in cutoff theories (e.g.
on a lattice)\, relative entropies are finite and can be directly defined
in the continuum QFT. In the framework of Tomita-Takesaki modular theory\
, the relative entropy between the vacuum and a coherent excitation can be
computed using the modular operator associated to the vacuum and the spac
etime region that one is interested in. Unfortunately\, its explicit form
is only known in a few special cases.\nUsing the known modular operator fo
r de Sitter wedges and a recent result for the modular operator for confor
mal fields in de Sitter diamonds\, we compute the relative entropy between
the de Sitter vacuum state and a coherent excitation thereof in these reg
ions. We show explicitly that the result is positive and monotone\, and th
us satisfies the expected properties for a relative entropy.\n\nhttps://in

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Edoardo D'Angelo (Università di Genova)\nSince the
discovery of the Bekenstein-Hawking formula\, there had been many attempts
to derive the entropy of black holes from the entanglement between the de

ntropy reproduces the area-law\, but it suffers from divergences in the co
ntinuum limit. In this talk\, I show how to derive the Bekenstein-Hawking

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Jan Mandrysch (Leipzig University)\nMany results in
general relativity rely crucially on classical energy conditions inflicted
on the stress-energy tensor. Quantum matter\, however\, violates these co
nditions since the energy density can fluctuate and in particular become a
rbitrarily negative at a point. Nonetheless quantum matter should have som
e reminiscent notion of stability\, which can be captured by so-called qua
ntum (weak) energy inequalities (QEIs)\, lower bounds of the smeared quant
um stress-energy tensor. QEIs could be proven in many free quantum field t
heories (QFT) on both flat and curved spacetimes. However\, it is less cle
ar what happens in models with self-interaction. \n\nWe will present numer
ical and analytical results on QEIs in a large class of 1+1d models referr
ed to as integrable QFTs. As particular examples we treat the O(n)-nonline
ar-sigma and sinh-Gordon model at 1- and 2-particle level. \n\nParts of th

procedure to construct ground and KMS states\, for real scalar fields whos
e dynamics is dictated by the Klein-Gordon equation\, on standard static L
orentzian manifolds with a time-like boundary. We observe that this constr
uction\, depending on which boundary condition we fix on the boundary\, do
es not always lead to a bi-distribution $w_2\\in \\mathcal{D}'(M\\times M)
$ for the two-point correlation function of the given state. The reason wh
y it fails to be a bi-distribution is the presence of infrared divergences
. We discuss an explicit example\, namely a real scalar field on Bertotti-
Robinson spacetime\, proving that infrared divergences occur when Neumann
boundary conditions are imposed at the time-like boundary\, while for thos
e of Robin-type the underlying two-point correlation function is a well de

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Paolo Meda (University of Trento)\nA characteristic
feature of semiclassical theories of gravity involving the backreaction of
a quantum matter field is the presence of higher order derivatives in the
dynamical equations. Hence\, the appearance of pathological "runaway solu
tions" is often argued\, i.e.\, solutions of the linearized equations arou
nd a background spacetime that grow exponentially in time. In this talk\,
this issue is studied in a semiclassical toy model\, consists of a quantum
scalar field coupled with a classical scalar field in Minkowski spacetime
. This toy model mimics also the evolution induced by Semiclassical Einste
in Equations for linear perturbations on flat and cosmological spacetimes.
It is shown that\, if the quantum field which drives the backreaction is
massive\, then there are choices of the renormalization parameters for whi
ch the linear perturbations with compact spatial support decay polynomiall
y in time for large times\, thus indicating stability of the underlying se
miclassical solution.\n\nhttps://indico.tpi.uni-jena.de/event/289/contribu

n from an analogue black hole in a Bose-Einstein condensate is spontaneous
\, thermal\, and stationary. Furthermore\, we follow the time evolution of
the Hawking radiation\, and compare and contrast it with the predictions
for real black holes. We observe the ramp up of the Hawking radiation\, si
milar to a real black hole. The end of the spontaneous Hawking radiation i
s marked by the formation of an inner horizon. The Maryland group predicte
d that particles emanating from the inner horizon can cause stimulated Haw
king radiation. We find that these stimulated Hawking pairs are directly o
bservable. We also present our observation of analogue cosmological partic
le creation in a 3-dimensional quantum fluid of light. The process is seen
to be spontaneous\, and in close quantitative agreement with the quantum-
field theoretical prediction. We find that the long-wavelength particles p
rovide a window to early times. This latter work introduces a new quantum
fluid\, as cold as an atomic Bose-Einstein condensate.\n\nhttps://indico.t

Relying solely on universal properties of QFTs at high energies\, we show
that as a star contracts towards its Buchdahl radius the effects of the t

As a consequence the unstable modes of scalar fields disappear\, implying
the system recovers linear stability under scalar perturbations.\n\nhttps:

which allows for the construction of certain vacuum states. These states
may be viewed as as the least possible generalization of the Minkowski vac

CE breaks down into solving a certain ODE which can be approached numerica
lly and\, at least generically\, we obtain solutions that well fit physica

=Λ=0\, this may not be traced back to the occurrence of a non-vanishing r
enormalized cosmological constant. Also we will shortly discuss how our mo

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Noah Zilberman ()\nBlack hole spacetimes harbor intr
icate internal structures\, featuring geometry that extends through an inn
er horizon to another external universe. This regularity of the inner hori
zon\, which plays the causal role of a Cauchy horizon\, challenges predict
ability within black holes. The strong cosmic censorship conjecture offers
a solution\, asserting that the Cauchy horizon becomes sufficiently irreg
ular under perturbations\, hence negating its existence. While this scenar
io is known to hold classically in some cases\, its validity amidst quantu
m perturbations remains an open question.\nAnswering this question require
s understanding how quantum energy fluxes influence the internal geometry
of black holes\, particularly at the inner horizon. A divergence in these
fluxes could dramatically alter the internal structure\, potentially resto
ring predictability by rendering the inner horizon impassable. Recent work
s have conquered the challenge of computing semiclassical energy fluxes (T
_{uu} and T_{vv} stress-energy tensor components in Eddington coordinates)
\nwithin black hole interiors\, shedding light on the nature of the Cauchy
horizon under quantum backreaction.\nMy talk outlines these recent advanc
ements\, presenting results in both asymptotically at (Zilberman\,Casal
s\,Ori&Ottewill) and asymptotically deSitter (Hollands\,Zahn&Wald) cases\,
briefly mentioning possible implications for the inner horizon traversabi

n black hole spacetimes. The first successful computation of the renormali
zed stress-energy tensor in a black hole spacetime dates back to seminal w
ork in the 1980s by Candelas and Howard. However\, there had been little i
mprovement on their prescription in the intervening decades\, despite some
drawbacks to their method. In recent years\, alternative approaches to co
mputing renormalized stress-energy tensors in black hole spacetimes have e
merged. I will discuss one such scheme that has proved very efficient in s
tatic black hole spacetimes in arbitrary dimensions. As an application of
this method\, I will also present results for the renormalized stress-ener

neighbourhood of the diagonal of larger than UxU\, for a normal convex n
eighbourhood U\, where (M\, g) is a Riemannian or Lorentzian (smooth Hausd
orff paracompact) manifold. We eventually propose a quite natural solution
which slightly changes the original definition by Kay and Wald and relies
upon some non-trivial consequences of the paracompactness property. The p

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Gautam Satishchandran (Princeton University)\nA long
-standing problem in QFT and quantum gravity is the construction of an “
IR-finite" S-matrix. In the gravitational case\, the existence of these
“infrared divergences” is intimately tied to the “memory effect” (
i.e. the permanent displacement of test masses due to the passage of a gra
vitational wave). In this talk\, I shall explain the origin of these conne
ctions and illustrate that the construction of an IR-finite S-matrix requi
res the inclusion of states with memory (which do not lie in the standard
Fock space). In massive QED an elegant solution to this problem was provid
ed by Faddeev and Kulish who constructed an incoming/outgoing Hilbert spac
e of charged particles “dressed” with memory. We illustrate the ``pref
erred status'' of such states and their relationship to the superselection
structure of QED. However\, we show that this construction fails in the c
ase of massless QED\, Yang-Mills theories\, linearized quantum gravity wit
h massless/massive sources\, and in full quantum gravity. In the case of q
uantum gravity\, we prove that the only "Faddeev-Kulish" state is the vacu
um state. We also show that “non-Faddeev-Kulish” representations are a
lso unsatisfactory. Thus\, in general\, it appears there is no preferred H
ilbert space for scattering in QFT and quantum gravity. We argue that\, at
a fundamental level\, one must formulate scattering theory without an a p
riori choice of Hilbert space. We outline the framework of such a manifest
ly IR-finite scattering theory.\n\nhttps://indico.tpi.uni-jena.de/event/28
