We study the quantum-mechanical corrections to two point particles accelerated by a strut in a 2+1 D flat background. Since the particles are accelerating, we use finite temperature techniques to compute the Green's function of a conformally coupled scalar applying transparent and Dirichlet boundary conditions at the location of the strut. We find that the induced energy-momentum tensor diverges at the position of the strut unless we impose transparent boundary conditions. Further, we use the…

Exact gravitational dual of a plasma ball

We present an exact solution for a black hole localized near an infrared wall in four-dimensional anti-deSitter space. By computing the holographic stress tensor we show that the CFT dual of the

Accelerating BTZ spacetime

An exact solution of (2 + 1)-dimensional Einstein gravity with a cosmological constant is studied. The corresponding spacetime is interpreted as an accelerating BTZ spacetime. The proper

On acceleration in three dimensions

We go “back to basics”, studying accelerating systems in 2 + 1 AdS gravity ab initio. We find three classes of geometry, which we interpret by studying holographically their physical parameters. From

Black funnels and droplets from the AdS C-metrics

We recently argued that the dynamics of strongly coupled field theories in black hole backgrounds is related via the AdS/CFT correspondence to two new classes of AdS black hole solutions: black

Instantons for particles joined by strings in three dimensional gravity

We study the instantons describing the production of particles at the ends of codimension-one objects (strings and struts) in (2  +  1)-dimensional Minkowski and de Sitter spaces. A Minkowskian

A bstractRecently we have shown [1] how to formulate a thermodynamic first law for a single (charged) accelerated black hole in AdS space by fixing the conical deficit angles present in the

Accelerating black hole in 2+1 dimensions and 3+1 black (st)ring

A C-metric type solution for general relativity with cosmological constant is presented in 2 + 1 dimensions. It is interpreted as a three-dimensional black hole accelerated by a strut. Positive



Dressed Domain Walls and holography

The cutoff version of the AdS/CFT correspondence states that the Randall Sundrum scenario is dual to a Conformal Field Theory (CFT) coupled to gravity in four dimensions. The gravitational field

Cutoff anti-de Sitter space/conformal-field-theory duality and the quest for braneworld black holes.

Significant evidence is presented in favor of the holographic conjecture that "4D black holes localized on the brane found by solving the classical bulk equations in AdS5 are quantum corrected black

Two gravitational shock waves on the AdS3 brane

A gravitational shock wave is a solution to Einstein equations describing the gravitational field of a massless particle. We obtain such a geometry for a particle moving on a AdS3 brane embedded in a

Strongly coupled radiation from moving mirrors and holography in the Karch-Randall model

Motivated by the puzzles in understanding how Black Holes evaporate into a strongly coupled Conformal Field Theory, we study particle creation by an accelerating mirror. We model the mirror as a

Quantum Black Holes as Holograms in AdS Braneworlds

We propose a new approach for using the AdS/CFT correspondence to study quantum black hole physics. The black holes on a brane in an AdSD+1 braneworld that solve the classical bulk equations are

Locally localized gravity: the inside story

We derive the exact gravitational field of a relativistic particle localized on an AdS 3-brane, with curvature radius l, in AdS5 bulk with radius L. The solution is a gravitational shock wave. We use

New exact solutions on the Randall-Sundrum 2-brane: lumps of dark radiation and accelerated black holes

We provide the most general embedding of a purely tensional 2-brane in a 3+1 dimensional bulk described by the AdS C-metric. The AdS C-metric has been first considered as bulk metric by Emparan,

Scalar field quantization on the (2+1)-dimensional black hole background.

The quantization of a massless conformally coupled scalar field on the 2+1 dimensional Anti de Sitter black hole background is presented and the back-reaction from the Green's function is calculated exactly and is shown to give rise to a curvature singularity at r=0 and to shift the horizon outwards.


We discuss a type-{22} solution of the Einstein-Maxwell equations which represents the field of a uniformly accelerating charged point mass. It contains three arbitrary parameters $m$, $e$, and $A$,
