Complexity and typical microstates

Complexity and typical microstates Thumbnail



Typical black hole microstates in AdS=CFT were recently conjectured to have a geometrical dual with a smooth horizon and a portion of a second asymptotic region. I consider the application of the holographic complexity conjectures to this geometry. The holographic calculation leads to divergent values for the complexity; I argue that this classical divergence is consistent with expectations for typical microstates.
