# AdS/CFT Casimir Energy for Rotating Black Holes

@inproceedings{Gibbons2005AdSCFTCE, title={AdS/CFT Casimir Energy for Rotating Black Holes}, author={G. W. Gibbons and Malcolm Perry and Christopher N. Pope}, year={2005} }

We show that if one chooses the Einstein Static Universe as the metric on the conformal boundary of Kerr-AdS spacetime, then the Casimir energy of the boundary conformal field theory can easily be determined. The result is independent of the rotation parameters, and the total boundary energy then straightforwardly obeys the first law of thermodynamics. Other choices for the metric on the conformal boundary will give different, more complicated, results. As an application, we calculate the…
