# Inverted c-functions in thermal states

@inproceedings{Cartwright2021InvertedCI, title={Inverted c-functions in thermal states}, author={Casey Cartwright and Matthias Kaminski}, year={2021} }

We first compute the effect of a chiral anomaly, charge, and a magnetic field on the entanglement entropy in N = 4 Super-Yang-Mills theory at strong coupling via holography. Depending on the width of the entanglement strip the entanglement entropy probes energy scales from the ultraviolet to the infrared energy regime of this quantum field theory (QFT) prepared in a given state. From the entanglement entropy, we compute holographic c-functions and demonstrate an inverted c-theorem for them… Expand
