Description

In the first part of the talk I will review the so-called generalised quantum Lifshitz theories. These are (d+1)-dimensional field theories with Lifshitz scaling symmetry, which exhibit certain features of d-dimensional conformal theories, whenever the dynamical critical exponent is equal to the number of spatial dimensions. In the second part of the talk, I will outline the computation of entanglement entropy for spherical entangling surfaces in Lifshitz theories in (d+1)-dimensions, and finally, discuss the results.
