  1. A bstract Previous work has explored the connections between three concepts — operator size, complexity, and the bulk radial momentum of an infalling object — in the context of JT gravity and the SYK model. In this paper we investigate the higher dimensional generalizations of these connections. We use a toy model to study the growth of an operator when perturbing the vacuum of a CFT. From circuit analysis we relate the operator growth to the rate of increase of complexity and check it by complexity-volume duality. We further give an empirical formula relating complexity and the bulk radial momentummore »that works from the time that the perturbation just comes in from the cutoff boundary, to after the scrambling time.« less
  2. A bstract We study non-supersymmetric extremal black hole excitations of 4d $$ \mathcal{N} $$ N = 2 supersymmetric string vacua arising from compactification on Calabi-Yau threefolds. The values of the (vector multiplet) moduli at the black hole horizon are governed by the attractor mechanism. This raises natural questions, such as “what is the distribution of attractor points on moduli space?” and “how many attractor black holes are there with horizon area up to a certain size?” We employ tools developed by Denef and Douglas [1] to answer these questions.
