    • Decoupling of Information Propagation from Energy Propagation 

      Jonsson, Robert H. (University of Waterloo, 2016-08-31)
      Information and energy are concepts central to our understanding of nature. Their relevance, in physics, ranges from fundamental physics, e.g., in black hole physics, all the way to future quantum computing technology. ...
    • Entanglement Harvesting and Divergences in Unruh-DeWitt Detector Pairs 

      Sachs, Allison (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-28)
      We analyze correlations between pairs of detectors quadratically coupled to real and complex scalar bosonic fields in 3+1 dimensions. This is a first step toward studying the entanglement structure of the fermionic ...
    • Exact Results in Gauge Theories 

      Silva, João (University of Waterloo, 2015-10-23)
      This thesis is devoted to the study of observables in the four dimensional superconformal N = 4 Yang-Mills theory. We will be focused on the problem of computing higher point correlation functions, scattering amplitudes ...
    • An Exploration of Locality, Conservation Laws, and Spin 

      Rempel, Trevor (University of Waterloo, 2017-01-23)
      Conservation rules are central to our understanding of the physical world, they place re- strictions on how particles can move and dictate what can occur during an interaction. However, it is often taken for granted how a ...
    • Localising Information in Bandlimited Quantum Field Theory 

      Pye, Jason (University of Waterloo, 2015-09-24)
      A deeply-held belief in fundamental physics is that interactions must happen locally. Despite the great success of local models, there are many indications that locality must be abandoned in a theory of quantum gravity. For ...
    • Minimum Number of Triangles of K5 Descendants 

      Santoli, Steven (University of Waterloo, 2022-01-26)
      In the study of Quantum Field Theory and Feynman Periods, the operation of double triangle expansion plays an important role. This is largely due to double triangle expansions not affecting the maximum weight of the ...
    • Probing Quantum Fields: Measurements and Quantum Energy Teleportation 

      Verdon-Akzam, Guillaume (University of Waterloo, 2017-01-10)
      Quantum Energy Teleportation provides a testbed for modern ideas involving the inter­play between quantum correlations and energy in the quantum thermodynamical regime. In this work, we provide a new class of Quantum Energy ...
    • Quantum Field Theory: Motivating the Axiom of Microcausality 

      Wright, Jessey (University of Waterloo, 2012-09-19)
      Axiomatic quantum field theory is one approach to the project of merging the special theory of relativity with that of ordinary quantum mechanics. The project begins with the postulation of a set of axioms. Axioms should ...
    • Quantum Gravity Renormalization Group 

      Shyam, Vasudev (University of Waterloo, 2020-07-27)
      Investigations relating the emergence of the radial direction in the holography, solvable irrelevant deformations of conformal eld theories and holographic entanglement entropy are reported. Emphasis is laid on how ...
