Type of Event (for grouping events):
I will discuss the thermal CFT two-point function in theories with simple holographic duals.
It encodes various aspects of the black hole geometry (orbits, quasi-normal modes, black hole singularity) in an interesting way.
I will present the exact solution to the thermal two-point function, explain its relation to the heavy-light conformal bootstrap
and discuss the connection to many-body scars.
