In high frequency(WKB) limit, singularities of GR(t,t’) occur at ,

consistent with a geometric optics picture in the bulk.

Bulk-cone singularities conjecture:

Hubeny, Liu and Rangamani hep-th/0610041

Singularities in time contains information on the “spectrum” of the particular operator O:

Standing mirror:

Scaling mirror:

GR(t,t’,z) singular near the segments

(-,0), (+,1), (-,1) etc

Matching along the mirror trajectory and on the boundary allows us to determine the singualr part of GR(t,t’,z) without solving PDE!

We have seen the disappearance of singularities on the real t axis as we probe later stage of a thermalizing state. GR(t,t’)

What about singularities in the complex t plane?

Do they emerge as the field thermalizes and eventually reduce to the singularities pattern in the thermal correlator?

The singularities on the real t axis we obtained come from real frequency contributions, i.e. Normal Modes, while singularities of thermal correlator come from QNM contribution.

Recall

Initial condition from WKB limit

Essentially a real frequency WKB. Can complex WKB give us singularities in the complex plane?

Set 2:

as opposed to

The QNM evolution does not seem to reduce to the pattern of the thermal state

- Starting with toy models, we have developed a divergence matching method for obtaining the singular part of unequal time correlator.
- Applying the method to gravitational collapse model, we obtain the evolution of singularities of correlator in thermalizing state.
- Motivated by the emergence of singularities in complex plane from contribution of QNM, we explored the evolution of QNM in quasi static state, but failed to reduce to themal QNM.
