The dS/CFT Correspondence and the Big Smash

- B. McInnes
- Physics
- 10 December 2001

Recent observations suggest that the cosmological equation-of-state parameter w is close to -1. To say this is to imply that w could be slightly less than -1, which leads to R. Caldwell's ``Phantom… Expand

Bounding the temperatures of black holes dual to strongly coupled field theories on flat spacetime

- B. McInnes
- Physics
- 8 May 2009

We show that AdS black holes dual to field theories on flat spacetime, as used in applications of the AdS/CFT correspondence to strong interaction and condensed matter physics, have temperatures with… Expand

De Sitter and Schwarzschild-de Sitter according to Schwarzschild and de Sitter

- B. McInnes
- Physics
- 4 August 2003

When de Sitter first introduced his celebrated spacetime, he claimed, following Schwarzschild, that its spatial sections have the topology of the real projective space P3 (that is, the topology of… Expand

Cosmic censorship for AdS5-Kerr

- B. McInnes
- Physics
- 4 June 2019

Abstract We show that cosmic censorship takes an exceptionally complex and interesting form in the case of five-dimensional AdS-Kerr black holes, due to the unusually distant relation obtaining in… Expand

Black hole final state conspiracies

- B. McInnes
- Physics
- 24 June 2008

Abstract The principle that unitarity must be preserved in all processes, no matter how exotic, has led to deep insights into boundary conditions in cosmology and black hole theory. In the case of… Expand

When is holography consistent

- B. McInnes, Y. Ong
- Physics
- 28 April 2015

Holographic duality relates two radically different kinds of theory: one with gravity, one without. The very existence of such an equivalence imposes strong consistency conditions which are, in the… Expand

Methods of holonomy theory for Ricci‐flat Riemannian manifolds

- B. McInnes
- Mathematics
- 1 April 1991

Compact, Ricci‐flat Riemannian manifolds often arise in physical applications, either as a technical device or as models of ‘‘internal’’ space. The idea of extending the holonomy group of such a… Expand

Gauge spinors and string duality

- B. McInnes
- Physics
- 13 October 1999

When the gauge groups of the two heterotic string theories are broken, over tori, to their “SO(16)×SO(16)” subgroups, the winding modes correspond to representations which are spinorial with respect… Expand

Examples of Einstein manifolds with all possible holonomy groups in dimensions less than seven

- B. McInnes
- Mathematics
- 1 September 1993

In an earlier work, the possible holonomy groups of all compact locally irreducible Riemannian manifolds of dimensions up to ten were classified, placing particular emphasis on the… Expand

Brinkman's theorem in general relativity and non-Riemannian field theories

- B. McInnes
- Physics
- 1 September 1980

A theorem due to Brinkman states that, given a solution of the vacuum general relativistic field equations, it is never possible to generate a further solution by means of a nontrivial conformal… Expand
