From Coadjoint Orbits to Black Holes

Anton Alekseev (University of Geneva), Julian Sonner (Universite de Geneve (CH)), Pranjal Nayak (University of Geneva)

This conference aims to bring together physicists and mathematicians interested in low-dimensional examples of holographic dualities, the orbit method and their interplay via the quantization of coadjoint orbits of the Virasoro group. The scope of this event encompasses two and three dimensional gravitational theories and their description via ensembles of strongly correlated quantum systems. These systems share the property of having an IR description that can be understood via the quantization of the coadjoint orbits of the Virasoro group and thus constitute a fertile ground for the interaction between physicists and mathematicians interested in these structures.
