Abstract

In the first part of the talk, I will explain how the lengths of non-minimal geodesics in AdS3 conical defect backgrounds can be interpreted as the entanglement entropy of certain subalgebras in the dual CFT. This part will be based on 1608.02040. In the second part of the talk, I will discuss how the Ryu-Takayanagi area term seems to be the analog of a certain edge term for EE in a gauge theory, and how one might try to test this. This part is more speculative.
