Thermal Phase Transition in the Bosonic BFSS Matrix Model

I recently got involved with numerically simulating the BFSS and BMN matrix models as a means to study quantum gravity via holographic dualities. These models are quantum mechanical models with hermitian N x N matrices as degrees of freedom, i.e. 0+1-dimensional quantum field theories.

8th Tux Workshop on Quantum Gravity

View from the top of the Eggalm-Bahn. 

As in previous years, I am co-organising a winter workshop on quantum gravity in Tux, Austria. The dates are February 10-14, 2020, and registration is open now. Further details can be found on our website:
