Holographic Butterfly Velocities in Brane Geometry and Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet Gravity with Matters.
In the first part of the paper we generalize the butterfly velocity formula to anisotropic spacetime. We apply the formula to evaluate the butterfly velocities in M-branes, D-branes and strings backgrounds. We show that the butterfly velocities in M2-branes, M5-branes and the intersection M2$\bot$M5 equal to those in fundamental strings, D4-branes and the intersection F1$\bot$D4 backgrounds, respectively. These observations lead us to conjecture that the butterfly velocity is generally invariant under a double-dimensional reduction. In the second part of the paper, we study the butterfly velocity for Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity with arbitrary matter fields. A general formula is obtained. We use this formula to compute the butterfly velocities in different backgrounds and discuss the associated properties.
