Entanglement wedge reconstruction and operator algebras

In order to satisfy the Reeh-Schlieder theorem, I study the infinite-dimensional Hilbert spaces using von Neumann algebras. I will first present the theorem that the entanglement wedge reconstruction and the equivalence of relative entropies between the boundary and the bulk (JLMS) are exactly identical. Then I will demonstrate the entanglement wedge reconstruction with a tensor network model of von Neumann algebra with type II1 factor, which guarantees the equivalence between the boundary and the bulk. I will further sketch that this toy model can be generalized to provide more general von Neumann algebras, including the case of a type III1 factor. This can give further insights to understanding quantum gravity from an algebraic perspective.
