Quantum gravity partition functions in three dimensions
We consider pure three-dimensional quantum gravity with a negative cosmological constant. The sum of known contributions to the partition function from classical geometries can be computed exactly,Expand

Conformal vacua and entropy in de Sitter space
The de Sitter/conformal field theory (dS/CFT) correspondence is illuminated through an analysis of massive scalar field theory in d-dimensional de Sitter space. We consider a one-parameter family ofExpand

Holographic mutual information is monogamous
We identify a special information-theoretic property of quantum field theories with holographic duals: the mutual informations among arbitrary disjoint spatial regions A,B,C obey the inequalityExpand

Hidden Conformal Symmetry of the Kerr Black Hole
Extreme and very-near-extreme spin $J$ Kerr black holes have been conjectured to be holographically dual to two-dimensional (2D) conformal field theories (CFTs) with left and right central chargesExpand

One-loop Partition Functions of 3D Gravity
We consider the one-loop partition function of free quantum field theory in locally Anti-de Sitter space-times. In three dimensions, the one loop determinants for scalar, gauge and gravitonExpand

Chiral gravity, log gravity, and extremal CFT
We show that the linearization of all exact solutions of classical chiral gravity around the ${\mathrm{AdS}}_{3}$ vacuum have positive energy. Nonchiral and negative-energy solutions of theExpand

Beauty is attractive: Moduli trapping at enhanced symmetry points
We study quantum effects on moduli dynamics arising from the production of particles which are light at points of enhanced symmetry in moduli space. The resulting forces trap the moduli at theseExpand

A cardy formula for three-point coefficients or how the black hole got its spots
A bstractModular covariance of torus one-point functions constrains the three point function coefficients of a two dimensional CFT. This leads to an asymptotic formula for the average value ofExpand

S-brane thermodynamics
The description of string-theoretic s-branes at gs = 0 as exact worldsheet CFTs with a ?cosh X0 or ?e?X0 boundary interaction is considered. Due to the imaginary-time periodicity of the interactionExpand

Holographic charged Rényi entropies
A bstractWe construct a new class of entanglement measures by extending the usual definition of Rényi entropy to include a chemical potential. These charged Rényi entropies measure the degree ofExpand
