Quantum chaos and gravity

Abstract: Chaos underlies the thermal behaviour in quantum systems. Black holes are thermal objects. In recent years a connection between chaos in ordinary quantum systems and the dynamics of black holes has been established. In this talk, I discuss what this connection teaches us about the dynamics of entanglement in many-body quantum systems and about the interior of old black holes.
