Quantum gravity partition functions in three dimensions

- A. Maloney, E. Witten
- Physics
- 2 December 2007

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

- R. Bousso, A. Maloney, A. Strominger
- Physics
- 21 December 2001

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 of… Expand

Holographic mutual information is monogamous

- P. Hayden, M. Headrick, A. Maloney
- Physics
- 14 July 2011

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 inequality… Expand

Hidden Conformal Symmetry of the Kerr Black Hole

- A. Castro, A. Maloney, A. Strominger
- Physics
- 7 April 2010

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 charges… Expand

One-loop Partition Functions of 3D Gravity

- S. Giombi, A. Maloney, Xi Yin
- Physics
- 10 April 2008

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 graviton… Expand

Chiral gravity, log gravity, and extremal CFT

- A. Maloney, W. Song, A. Strominger
- Physics
- 26 March 2009

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 the… Expand

Beauty is attractive: Moduli trapping at enhanced symmetry points

- L. Kofman, Andrei Linde, Xiao Liu, A. Maloney, L. McAllister, E. Silverstein
- Physics
- 1 March 2004

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 these… Expand

A cardy formula for three-point coefficients or how the black hole got its spots

- Per Kraus, A. Maloney
- Physics
- 10 August 2016

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 of… Expand

S-brane thermodynamics

- A. Maloney, A. Strominger, Xi Yin
- Physics
- 19 February 2003

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 interaction… Expand

Holographic charged Rényi entropies

- Alexandre Belin, Ling-Yan Hung, A. Maloney, S. Matsuura, R. Myers, Todd Sierens
- Physics
- 15 October 2013

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 of… Expand
