1307.6850 (Julian Sonner)

The ER = EPR conjecture and the Schwinger Effect    [PDF]

Julian Sonner
In this note we point out that the recently proposed bulk dual of an entangled pair of a quark and an anti-quark corresponds to the Lorentzian continuation of the tunneling instanton describing Schwinger pair creation in the dual field theory. This observation supports and further explains the claim by Jensen & Karch that the bulk dual of an EPR pair is a string with a wormhole on its world sheet. We suggest that this constitutes an AdS/CFT realization of the creation of a Wheeler wormhole.
