An infalling observer in AdS/CFT
A bstractWe describe the experience of an observer falling into a black hole using the AdS/CFT correspondence. In order to do this, we reconstruct the local bulk operators measured by the observerExpand

State-Dependent Bulk-Boundary Maps and Black Hole Complementarity
We provide a simple and explicit construction of local bulk operators that describe the interior of a black hole in the AdS/CFT correspondence. The existence of these operators is predicated on theExpand

Emergent spacetime and holographic CFTs
A bstractWe discuss universal properties of conformal field theories with holographic duals. A central feature of these theories is the existence of a low-lying sector of operators whose correlatorsExpand

First order deconfinement transition in large N Yang-Mills theory on a small S 3
We give an analytic demonstration that the $3+1$-dimensional large $N$ $SU(N)$ pure Yang-Mills theory, compactified on a small ${S}^{3}$ so that the coupling constant at the compactification scale isExpand

Small hairy black holes in AdS5 × S5
A bstractWe study small hairy black holes in a consistent truncation of $ \mathcal{N} $ = 8 gauged supergravity that consists of a single charged scalar field interacting with the metric and a U(1)Expand

Remarks on the necessity and implications of state-dependence in the black hole interior
We revisit the "state-dependence" of the map that we proposed recently between bulk operators in the interior of a large anti-de Sitter black hole and operators in the boundary CFT. By refiningExpand

The phase structure of low dimensional large N gauge theories on tori
In this paper we continue our study of the thermodynamics of large N gauge theories on compact spaces. We consider toroidal compactifications of pure SU(N) Yang-Mills theories and of maximallyExpand

Minisuperspace quantization of "Bubbling AdS" and free fermion droplets
We quantize the space of 1/2 BPS configurations of type-IIB SUGRA found by Lin, Lunin and Maldacena (hep-th/0409174), directly in supergravity. We use the Crnkovic-Witten-Zuckerman covariantExpand
