To average or not to average

Jan de Boer

*,*University of Amsterdam*,*In this talk I will describe a possible interpretation of genus two wormholes in AdS3 in terms of a

suitable averaging procedure in the dual field theory, and connect this to random properties of

OPE coefficients. I will discuss possible lessons from this for the question whether or not gravity

is intrinsically an averaged theory. Based on arXiv:2006.05499 with Alex Belin.
