Title: Supersymmetric Renyi Entropy
Date: Wed, Mar 26, 2014, 15:30 - 17:00
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: The replica method allows us to represent the Renyi entropy by a partition function on a conical spacetime. It, however, breaks supersymmetries near the conical singularity. I will propose a supersymmetric extension of the Renyi entropy for 3d N=2 SCFTs by using the supersymmetric partition function on the R-symmetry flux background.
