Title : Holography Complexity and Thermodynamic Volume
I describe the first investigation of the holographic complexity conjectures for spinning black holes. Exploiting a simplification that occurs for equal-spinning odd dimensional black holes, we uncover a relationship between the complexity of formation and the thermodynamic volume associated with the black hole. This result reduces to known expressions when the spin vanishes, and suggests that thermodynamic volume and entropy that governs the complexity of formation in both the Complexity Equals Volume and Complexity Equals Action proposals. Assuming the validity of a conjectured inequality for thermodynamic volume, our result suggests the complexity of formation is bounded from below by the entropy for large black holes.
