Implications for more complex cryptographic protocols

Implications for AdSCFT

Other papers I don’t know well enough to summarize:

What’s next?

I think it would be nice to define the following:

Also, the papers use slightly different definitions, are they all comparable? At least for a few papers, we can write them out and see how they differ.

Then it would be nice to start listing some open questions. Then we could send it around and ask if people have comments.
