Title: Diffusion and chaos from near AdS 2 horizons

Abstract

We calculate the thermal diffusivity D = $$\kappa/c_\rho$$ and butterfy velocity $$\upsilon_\beta$$ in holographic models that flow to $$AdS_2$$ x $R^d$ fixed points in the infra-red. We show that both these quantities are governed by the same irrelevant deformation of $$AdS_2$$ and hence establish a simple relationship between them. When this deformation corresponds to a universal dilaton mode of dimension $$\Delta$$ = 2 then this relationship is always given by D = $$\upsilon_B^2$$/(2$$\pi$$T).
