Title: Lyapunov growth in quantum spin chainsComments: 28 pages, 15 figuresSubjects: High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth); Statistical Mechanics (condmat.statmech)
The Ising spin chain with longitudinal and transverse magnetic fields is often used in studies of quantum chaos, displaying both chaotic and integrable regions in its parameter space. However, even at a strongly chaotic point this model does not exhibit Lyapunov growth of the commutator squared of spin operators, as this observable saturates before exponential growth can manifest itself (even in situations where a spatial suppression factor makes the initial commutator small). We extend this model from the spin 1/2 Ising model to higher spins, demonstrate numerically that a window of exponential growth opens up for sufficiently large spin, and extract the corresponding quantum Lyapunov exponent. In the classical infinitespin limit, we identify and compute an appropriate classical Lyapunov exponent, and show that it agrees with the infinitespin limit of the quantum Lyapunov exponent.

Title: Black hole evaporation and semiclassicality at large DComments: 6 pagesSubjects: High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth); General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology (grqc)
Black holes of sufficiently large initial radius are expected to be well described by a semiclassical analysis at least until half of their initial mass has evaporated away. For a small number of spacetime dimensions, this holds as long as the black hole is parametrically larger than the Planck length. In that case, curvatures are small and backreaction onto geometry is expected to be well described by a timedependent classical metric. We point out that at large $D$, small curvature is insufficient to guarantee a valid semiclassical description of black holes. Instead, the strongest bounds come from demanding that the rate of change of the geometry is small and that black holes scramble information faster than they evaporate. This is a consequence of the enormous power of Hawking radiation in $D$dimensions due to the large available phase space and the resulting minuscule evaporation times. Asymptotically, only black holes with entropies $S \geq D^{D+3} \log D$ are semiclassical. We comment on implications for realistic quantum gravity models in $D \leq 26$ as well as relations to bounds on theories with a large number of gravitationally interacting light species.

Title: Towards an M5Brane Model II: Metric String StructuresComments: 70 pages, comments welcomeSubjects: High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth); Mathematical Physics (mathph)
We clarify the mathematical formulation of metric string structures, which play a crucial role in the formulation of sixdimensional superconformal field theories. We show that the connections on nonabelian gerbes usually introduced in the literature are problematic in that they are locally gauge equivalent to connections on abelian gerbes. String structures form an exception and we introduce the general concept of an adjusted Weil algebra leading to potentially interacting connections on higher principal bundles. We then discuss the metric extension of string structures and the corresponding adjusted Weil algebra. The latter lead to connections that were previously constructed by hand in the context of gauged supergravities. We also explain how the Leibniz algebras induced by an embedding tensor in gauged supergravities fit into our picture.

Title: Warped Schwarzian theoryAuthors: Hamid R. AfsharComments: 20 pagesSubjects: High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth)
We consider the (twisted) warped Virasoro group Diff($S^1$)$\ltimes$ C$^\infty$($S^1$) in the presence of its three cocycles. We compute the KirillovKostantSouriau symplectic 2form on coadjoint orbits. We then construct the Euclidean action of the `warped Schwarzian theory' associated to the orbit with SL(2,$\mathbb{R}$)$\times$U(1) stabilizer as the effective theory of the reparametrization over the base circle and evaluate the corresponding oneloopexact path integral.

Title: Massdeformed $\mathcal{N} = 3$ Supersymmetric ChernSimonsMatter TheoryComments: 9 pagesSubjects: High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth); Mathematical Physics (mathph)
The maximal extension of supersymmetric ChernSimons theory coupled to fundamental matter has $\mathcal{N} = 3$ supersymmetry. In this short note, we provide the explicit form of the action for the massdeformed $\mathcal{N} = 3$ supersymmetric $U(N)$ ChernSimonsMatter theory. The theory admits a unique triplet mass deformation term consistent with supersymmetry. We explicitly construct the massdeformed $\mathcal{N} = 3$ theory in $\mathcal{N} = 1$ superspace using a fundamental and an antifundamental superfield.

Title: The instability of a black hole with $f(R)$ global monopole under extended uncertainty principleComments: 13 pages, 3 figuresSubjects: High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth); General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology (grqc)
We consider the evolution of black hole involving an $f(R)$ global monopole based on the Extended Uncertainty Principle (EUP). The black hole evolutions refer to the instability due to the ParikhKrausWilczeck tunneling radiation or fragmentation. It is found that the EUP corrections make the entropy difference larger to encourage the black hole to radiate more greatly. We also show that the appearance of the EUP effects result in the black hole's division. The influence from global monopole and the revision of general relativity can also adjust the black hole evolution simultaneously, but can not change the final result that the black hole will not be stable because of the EUP's effects.

Title: Superstring Amplitudes, Unitarity, and Hankel Determinants of Multiple Zeta ValuesComments: 28 pagesSubjects: High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth); Mathematical Physics (mathph)
The interplay of unitarity and analyticity has long been known to impose strong constraints on scattering amplitudes in quantum field theory and string theory. This has been highlighted in recent times in a number of papers and lecture notes. Here we examine such conditions in the context of superstring treelevel scattering amplitudes, leading to positivity constraints on determinants of Hankel matrices involving polynomials of multiple zeta values. These generalise certain constraints on polynomials of single zeta values in the mathematics literature.

Title: From quantized spins to rotating black holesSubjects: High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth); General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology (grqc)
It has been shown recently that classicalspin limit of minimally coupled spinning particles can reproduce the dynamics of Kerr black holes. This raises the intriguing question of how particles with finite (quantized) spins can capture the classical potential of black holes, especially since their Wilson coefficients in the framework of oneparticle effective theory (EFT) were shown to be distinct. In this paper we first derive the 1 PM potential for the general EFTs to all orders in spin operators. When applied to minimal coupling, we demonstrate that in the chiral spinor basis it factorizes into a spinindependent universal piece and a spindependent combinatorial factor. By simply replacing the combinatoric factor by its infinitespin limit counterpart, universality allows us to extract black hole observables via finitespin particles. We also discuss the possible constraint universality imposes on the gravitational Compton amplitude, relevant for the 2 PM potential, as well as extending such property to nonminimal interactions.

Title: General Composite NonAbelian Strings and Flag Manifold Sigma ModelsAuthors: Edwin IresonComments: 44 pages, 1 figureSubjects: High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth); Mathematical Physics (mathph)
We fully investigate the symmetry breaking patterns occurring upon creation of composite nonAbelian strings: vortex strings in nonAbelian theories where different sets of colours have different amounts of flux. After spontaneous symmetry breaking, there remains some internal colour degrees of freedom attached to these objects, which we argue must exist in a Flag manifold, a more general kind of projective space than both $\mathbb{CP}(N)$ and the Grassmannian manifold. These strings are expected to be BPS, since its constituents are. We demonstrate that this is true and construct a lowenergy effective action for the fluctuations of the internal Flag moduli, which we then rewrite it in two different ways for the dynamics of these degrees of freedom: a gauged linear sigma model with auxiliary fields and a nonlinear sigma model with an explicit target space metric for the Flag Manifolds, both of which $\mathcal{N}=(2,2)$ supersymmetric. We finish by performing some groundwork analysis of the resulting theory.

Title: Reflections on Virasoro circuit complexity and Berry phaseAuthors: Ibrahim AkalComments: 32 pagesSubjects: High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth); Quantum Physics (quantph)
Recently, the notion of circuit complexity defined in symmetry group manifolds has been related to geometric actions which generally arise in the coadjoint orbit method in representation theory and play an important role in geometric quantization. On the other hand, it is known that there exists a precise relation between geometric actions and Berry phases defined in group representations. Motivated by these connections, we elaborate on a relation between circuit complexity and the group theoretic Berry phase. As the simplest setup relevant for holography, we discuss the case of two dimensional conformal field theories. In the large central charge limit, we identify the computational cost function with the Berry connection in the unitary representation of the Virasoro group. We then use the latter identification to express the Berry phase in terms of the Virasoro circuit complexity. The former can be seen as the holonomy of the Berry connection along the path in the group manifold which defines the protocol. In addition, we derive a proportionality relation between Virasoro circuit complexity and the logarithm of the inner product between a particularly chosen reference state and the prepared target state. In this sense, the logarithmic formula turns out to be approximating the complexity up to some additive constant if the building blocks of the circuit are taken to be the underlying symmetry gates. Predictions based on this formula have recently been shown to coincide with the holographic complexity proposals and the path integral optimization procedure. The found connections may therefore help to better understand such coincidences. We also discuss that our findings, put together with earlier observations, may suggest a connection between the Virasoro Berry phase and the complexity measure in the path integral optimization proposal.

Title: Sixdimensional gauge theories and (twisted) generalized cohomologyAuthors: Hisham SatiComments: 15 pagesSubjects: High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth); Algebraic Topology (math.AT); KTheory and Homology (math.KT)
We consider the global aspects of the 6dimensional $\mathcal{N}=(1, 0)$ theory arising from the coupling of the vector multiplet to the tensor multiplet. We show that the YangMills field and its dual, when both are abelianized, combine to define a class in twisted cohomology with the twist arising from the class of the $B$field, in a dualitysymmetric manner. We then show that this lifts naturally to a class in twisted (differential) Ktheory. Alternatively, viewing the Bfield in both $\mathcal{N}=(1,0)$ and $\mathcal{N}=(2,0)$ theories, not as a twist but as an invertible element, leads to a description within untwisted chromatic level two generalized cohomology theories, including forms of elliptic cohomology and Morava Ktheory.

Title: Aspects of AdS$_2$ classification in Mtheory: Solutions with mesonic and baryonic chargesComments: 40 pages, 10 figuresSubjects: High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth); General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology (grqc)
We construct necessary and sufficient geometric conditions for AdS$_2$ solutions of Mtheory with, at least, minimal supersymmetry to exist. We generalize previous results in the literature for ${\cal N}=(2,0)$ supersymmetry in AdS$_2$ to ${\cal N}=(1,0)$. When the solution can be locally described as AdS$_2\times \Sigma_g \times \,$SE$_7$ with $\Sigma_g$ a Riemann surface of genus $g$ and SE$_7$ a sevendimensional SasakiEinstein manifold, we clarify and unify various solutions present in the literature. In the case of SE$_7=Q^{1,1,1}$ we find a new solution with baryonic and mesonic charges turned on simultaneously.

Title: JackiwTeitelboim Model Coupled to Conformal Matter in the SemiClassical LimitComments: 60 pages, 1 figureSubjects: High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth); General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology (grqc)
We analyse the JackiwTeitelboim model of 2D gravity coupled to $N$ massless free scalar fields in the semiclassical limit. Two systems are studied which essentially differ in the boundary conditions that are imposed. We find that the thermodynamics has interesting differences. We also analyse the response to additional infalling matter which satisfies the null energy condition. The second law is shown to be valid in both systems for the generalised entropy which takes into account the entanglement across the event horizon due to the matter fields. Similarly we find that the generalised entropy increases along future Qscreens in both systems.

Title: Interacting Edge States of Fermionic SymmetryProtected Topological Phases in Two DimensionsComments: 12 pages, 3 figures. Updated; corrected typo in eq 75 of previous versionSubjects: Strongly Correlated Electrons (condmat.strel); High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth)
Recently, it has been found that there exist symmetryprotected topological phases of fermions, which have no realizations in noninteracting fermionic systems or bosonic models. We study the edge states of such an intrinsically interacting fermionic SPT phase in two spatial dimensions, protected by $\mathbb{Z}_4\times\mathbb{Z}_2^T$ symmetry. We model the edge Hilbert space by replacing the internal $\mathbb{Z}_4$ symmetry with a spatial translation symmetry, and design an exactly solvable Hamiltonian for the edge model. We show that at lowenergy the edge can be described by a twocomponent Luttinger liquid, with nontrivial symmetry transformations that can only be realized in strongly interacting systems. We further demonstrate the symmetryprotected gaplessness under various perturbations, and the bulkedge correspondence in the theory.

Title: Effective Field Theory of Gravity to All OrdersComments: 30 pages + appendices and referencesSubjects: High Energy Physics  Phenomenology (hepph); General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology (grqc); High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth)
We construct the general effective field theory of gravity coupled to the Standard Model of particle physics, which we name GRSMEFT. Our method allows the systematic derivation of a nonredundant set of operators of arbitrary dimension with generic field content and gravity. We explicitly determine the pure gravity EFT up to dimension ten, the EFT of a shiftsymmetric scalar coupled to gravity up to dimension eight, and the operator basis for the GRSMEFT up to dimension eight. Extensions to all orders are straightforward.

Title: The phase diagram of the Polyakov Nambu JonaLasinio approach for finite chemical potentialsSubjects: High Energy Physics  Phenomenology (hepph); High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth)
We extend the SU(3) (Polyakov) Nambu JonaLasinio in two ways: We introduce the next to leading order contribution (in $N_c$) in the partition function. This contribution contains explicit mesonic terms. We introduce a coupling between the gluon field and the quark degrees of freedom which goes beyond a simple rescaling of the critical temperature. With both these improvements we can reproduce, for vanishing chemical potentials, the lattice results for the thermal properties of a strongly interacting system like pressure, energy density, entropy density, interaction measure and the speed of sound. Also the expansion parameter towards small but finite chemical potentials agrees with the lattice results. Extending the calculations to finite chemical potentials (what does not require any new parameter) we find a first order phase transition up to a critical end point of $T_{CEP}= 110\ MeV$ and $\mu_q = 320\ MeV$. For very large chemical potentials, we find agreement with pQCD calculations. We calculate the mass of mesons and baryons as a function of temperature and chemical potential and the transition between the hadronic and the chirally restored phase. These calculations provide an equation of state in the whole $T,\mu$ plane an essential ingredient for dynamical calculations of ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions but also for the physics of neutron stars and neutron star collisions.

Title: Autonomous Dynamical System of EinsteinGaussBonnet CosmologiesSubjects: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology (grqc); High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth)
In this paper, we study the phase space of cosmological models in the context of EinsteinGaussBonnet theory. More specifically, we consider a generalized dynamical system that encapsulates the main features of the theory and for the cases that this is rendered autonomous, we analyze its equilibrium points and stable and unstable manifolds corresponding to several distinct cosmological evolutions. As we demonstrate, the phase space is quite rich and contains invariant structures, which dictate the conditions under which the theory may be valid and viable in describing the evolution Universe during different phases. It is proved that a stable equilibrium point and two invariant manifolds leading to the fixed point, have both physical meaning and restrict the physical aspects of such a rich in structure modified theory of gravity. More important we prove the existence of a heteroclinic orbit which drives the evolution of the system to a stable fixed point. However, while on the fixed point the Friedman constraint corresponding to a flat Universe is satisfied, the points belonging to the heteroclinic orbit do not satisfy the Friedman constraint. We interpret this violation as an indication that the Universe actually can evolve from nonflat to flat geometries in the context of EinsteinGaussBonnet theory, and we provide qualitative and quantitative proofs for this intriguing issue.

Title: M. Kontsevich's graph complexes and universal structures on graded symplectic manifolds IAuthors: Kevin MorandComments: 42 pagesSubjects: Quantum Algebra (math.QA); High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth); Mathematical Physics (mathph)
In the formulation of his celebrated Formality conjecture, M. Kontsevich introduced a universal version of the deformation theory for the Schouten algebra of polyvector fields on affine manifolds. This universal deformation complex takes the form of a differential graded Lie algebra of graphs, denoted $\mathsf{fGC}_2$, together with an injective morphism towards the ChevalleyEilenberg complex associated with the Schouten algebra. The latter morphism is given by explicit local formulas making implicit use of the supergeometric interpretation of the Schouten algebra as the algebra of functions on a graded symplectic manifold of degree $1$. The ambition of the present series of works is to generalise this construction to graded symplectic manifolds of arbitrary degree $n\geq1$. The corresponding graph model is given by the full Kontsevich graph complex $\mathsf{fGC}_d$ where $d=n+1$ stands for the dimension of the associated AKSZ type $\sigma$model. This generalisation is instrumental to classify universal structures on graded symplectic manifolds. In particular, the zeroth cohomology of the full graph complex $\mathsf{fGC}_{d}$ is shown to act via $\mathsf{Lie}_\infty$automorphisms on the algebra of functions on graded symplectic manifolds of degree $n$. This generalises the known action of the GrothendieckTeichm\"{u}ller algebra $\mathfrak{grt}_1\simeq H^0(\mathsf{fGC}_2)$ on the space of polyvector fields. This extended action can in turn be used to generate new universal deformations of Hamiltonian functions, generalising Kontsevich flows on the space of Poisson manifolds to differential graded manifolds of higher degrees. As an application of the general formalism, new universal flows on the space of Courant algebroids are presented.

Title: Fourier coefficients of minimal and nexttominimal automorphic representations of simplylaced groupsAuthors: Dmitry Gourevitch, Henrik P. A. Gustafsson, Axel Kleinschmidt, Daniel Persson, Siddhartha SahiComments: 44 pages, this paper builds upon and extends the results of the second half of arXiv:1811.05966v1, which was split into two parts. The first part (with new title) is arXiv:1811.05966v2 and the present paper is an extension of the second partSubjects: Number Theory (math.NT); High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth); Representation Theory (math.RT)
In this paper we analyze Fourier coefficients of automorphic forms on adelic split simplylaced reductive groups $G(\mathbb{A})$. Let $\pi$ be a minimal or nexttominimal automorphic representation of $G(\mathbb{A})$. We prove that any $\eta\in \pi$ is completely determined by its Whittaker coefficients with respect to (possibly degenerate) characters of the unipotent radical of a fixed Borel subgroup, analogously to the PiatetskiShapiroShalika formula for cusp forms on $GL_n$. We also derive explicit formulas expressing the form, as well as all its maximal parabolic Fourier coefficient in terms of these Whittaker coefficients. A consequence of our results is the nonexistence of cusp forms in the minimal and nexttominimal automorphic spectrum. We provide detailed examples for $G$ of type $D_5$ and $E_8$ with a view towards applications to scattering amplitudes in string theory.

Title: Renormalization group improved pressure for cold and dense QCDComments: 16 pages and 7 figuresSubjects: High Energy Physics  Phenomenology (hepph); High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth); Nuclear Theory (nuclth)
We apply the renormalization group optimized perturbation theory (RGOPT)to evaluate the QCD (matter) pressure at the twoloop level considering three flavors of massless quarks in a dense and cold medium. Already at leading order ($\alpha_s^0$), which builds on the simple one loop (RG resummed) term, our technique provides a nontrivial nonperturbative approximation which is completely renormalization group invariant. At the nexttoleading order the comparison between the RGOPT and the pQCD predictions shows that the former method provides results which are in better agreement with the stateoftheart $higher \, order$ perturbative results, which include a contribution of order $\alpha_s^3 \ln^2 \alpha_s$. At the same time one also observes that the RGOPT predictions are less sensitive to variations of the arbitrary $\overline {\rm MS}$ renormalization scale than those obtained with pQCD. These results indicate that the RGOPT provides an efficient resummation scheme which may be considered as an alternative to lattice simulations at high baryonic densities.

Title: Exact annihilation energy and proper decay time solution of a parapositronium systemSubjects: Quantum Physics (quantph); High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth); Atomic Physics (physics.atomph)
Para positronium composed by an electronantielectron pair is an unstable system decaying into two high energetic gamma photons via self annihilation process, due to the conservation of the charge conjugation parity in electromagnetically interacting systems. Therefore, the spectrum covering all fundamental properties of the parapositronium system includes an imaginary part corresponding to the proper decay time besides the real parts corresponding to the total annihilation energy and binding energy, simultaneously. The parapositronium can be regarded as relativistic two body system in which there exist a Coulomb interaction force between the oppositely charged particles. Because of the annihilation condition, ($l=0$), and total spin of the system, ($S=0$), the problem is solved in 1+1 dimensional spacetime background by using fully covariant relativistic two body equation, without any approximation. Adopting the obtained spectra to an electronantielectron pair we find total annihilation energy, binding energy and proper decay time of the parapositronium system. Since the obtained spectra shows the fascinating properties of the system, our findings can shed light to medical monitoring processes, positron annihilation spectroscopy in any system and gammaray laser studies.

Title: Topological phases in twolegged Heisenberg ladders with alternated interactionsComments: 9 pages, 12 figuresSubjects: Strongly Correlated Electrons (condmat.strel); High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth)
We analyze the possible existence of topological phases in twolegged spin ladders considering a staggered interaction in both chains. When the staggered interaction in one chain is shifted by one site with respect to the other chain, the model can be mapped, in the continuum limit, into a non linear sigma model NL$\sigma$M plus a topological term which is nonvanishing even if the number of legs is two. This implies the existence of a critical point which distinguishes two phases. We perform a numerical analysis of energy levels, parity and string nonlocal order parameters, correlation functions between $x,y,z$ components of spins at the edges of an open ladder, the degeneracy of the entanglement spectrum and the entanglement entropy in order to characterize these two different phases. Finally, we identify one phase with a Mott insulator and the other one with a Haldane insulator.

Title: Measuring $H_0$ in PTA with gravitational wavesComments: 24 pages, 11 figures, 2 tablesSubjects: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology (grqc); Cosmology and Nongalactic Astrophysics (astroph.CO); High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth)
Pulsar Timing Arrays have yet to find convincing evidence of gravitational waves. Some time ago it was pointed out by one of the authors that a dramatic enhancement of the signal would take place for particular values of the angle subtended by the source and the observed pulsar. This enhancement is due to the fact that waves propagate in a FriedmannLemaitreRobertsonWalker metric where, contrary to some widespread belief, a simple harmonic function with a redshifted frequency is not a solution of the equation of motion. At the first nontrivial order, proper solutions have an effective wave number that differs from the frequency. This leads to some interesting effects in Pulsar Timing Arrays whose most visible manifestation is the enhancement of the signal that, all other parameters kept fixed, is related in a simple manner to the value of $H_0$. In this work we rederive in an alternative way the main results, extend the formalism to a more realistic setting where all components in the cosmological budget are included, investigate in detail the dependence of the signal on the various parameters involved and propose an observational setup to hopefully detect this very relevant effect.

Title: Using SPTpol, Planck 2015, and nonCMB data to constrain tilted spatiallyflat and untilted nonflat $Λ$CDM, XCDM, and $φ$CDM dark energy inflation cosmologiesComments: 24 pages, 14 figures, 6 tablesSubjects: Cosmology and Nongalactic Astrophysics (astroph.CO); General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology (grqc); High Energy Physics  Phenomenology (hepph); High Energy Physics  Theory (hepth)
We use six tilted spatiallyflat and untilted nonflat dark energy cosmological models in analyses of South Pole Telescope polarization (SPTpol) cosmic microwave background (CMB) data, alone and in combination with Planck 2015 CMB data and nonCMB data. All bestfit cosmological models have CMB anisotropy power spectra that do not provide good fits to the SPTpol data, differing at the 2 to 3$\sigma$ level. In all models, there is no significant difference between the model that best fits the SPTpol data and the one that best fits the Planck CMB and nonCMB data. When the smaller angular scale SPTpol data are used jointly with either the Planck data alone or with the Planck CMB and the nonCMB data to constrain untilted nonflat models, spatiallyclosed models remain favored over their corresponding flat limits. When used in conjunction with Planck data, nonCMB data (baryon acoustic oscillation measurements in particular, from six experiments) have significantly more constraining power than the SPTpol data.
