# BMS modular diaries: torus one-point function

@article{Bagchi2020BMSMD, title={BMS modular diaries: torus one-point function}, author={Arjun Bagchi and Poulami Nandi and Amartyajyoti Saha and Zodinmawia}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2020} }

Two dimensional field theories invariant under the Bondi-Metzner-Sachs (BMS) group are conjectured to be dual to asymptotically flat spacetimes in three dimensions. In this paper, we continue our investigations of the modular properties of these field theories. In particular, we focus on the BMS torus one-point function. We use two different methods to arrive at expressions for the torus one-point function for general states in the theory. We then concentrate on the BMS highest weight…

Abstract
We construct the characters for the highest weight representations of the 3d Bondi-Metzner-Sachs (BMS3) algebra. We reproduce our character formula by looking at singular limits from 2d…
