We address the questions of conservation and integrability of the charges in two and three-dimensional gravity theories at infinity. The analysis is performed in a framework that allows us to treat simultaneously asymptotically locally AdS and asymptotically locally flat spacetimes. In two dimensions, we start from a general class of models that includes JT and CGHS dilaton gravity theories, while in three dimensions, we work in Einstein gravity. In both cases, we construct the phase space and… 

Chiral massive news: null boundary symmetries in topologically massive gravity

We study surface charges on a generic null boundary in three dimensional topological massive gravity (TMG). We construct the solution phase space which involves four independent functions over the

The partial Bondi gauge: Further enlarging the asymptotic structure of gravity

We present a detailed analysis of gravity in a partial Bondi gauge, where only the three conditions g rr = 0 = g rA are fixed. We relax in particular the so-called determinant condition on the

Holographic Lorentz and Carroll Frames

Relaxing the Bondi gauge, the solution space of three-dimensional gravity in the metric formulation has been shown to contain an additional free function that promotes the boundary metric to a

More on Boundary Conditions for Warped AdS3 in GMG

In this paper, we study the Aggarwal, Ciambelli, Detournay, and Somerhausen (ACDS) boundary conditions (Aggarwal et al. in JHEP 22:013, 2020) for Warped AdS 3 (WAdS 3 ) in the framework of General

Boundary Conditions for $\mathrm{AdS_2}$ Dilaton Gravity

We study a bi–parametric family of dilaton gravity models with constant and negative curvature. This family includes the Jackiw–Teitelboim gravity and the Liouville gravity model induced by a bosonic

Dynamical symmetries of homogeneous minisuperspace models

We investigate the phase space symmetries and conserved charges of homogeneous gravitational minisuperspaces. These (0 + 1)-dimensional reductions of general relativity are defined by spacetime

dS 2 as excitation of AdS 2

We introduce a family of 2D dilaton gravity models with state-dependent constant curvature so that dS 2 emerges as an excitation of AdS 2 . Curiously, the strong coupling region corresponds to the

Symmetries at causal boundaries in 2D and 3D gravity

Abstract We study 2d and 3d gravity theories on spacetimes with causal (timelike or null) codimension one boundaries while allowing for variations in the position of the boundary. We construct the

Target space diffeomorphisms in Poisson sigma models and asymptotic symmetries in 2D dilaton gravities

The dilaton gravity models in two dimensions, including the Jackiw–Teitelboim model and its deformations, are particular cases of Poisson sigma models. Target space diffeomorphisms map one Poisson

Constructing effective action for gravitational field by effective potential method

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to construct a quantum effective action for gravitational fields by the effective potential method in quantum field theory. The minimum of the quantum effective



Weyl charges in asymptotically locally AdS3 spacetimes

We discuss an enhancement of the Brown-Henneaux boundary conditions in three-dimensional AdS General Relativity to encompass Weyl transformations of the boundary metric. The resulting asymptotic

Surface charge algebra in gauge theories and thermodynamic integrability

Surface charges and their algebra in interacting Lagrangian gauge field theories are constructed out of the underlying linearized theory using techniques from the variational calculus. In the case of

Canonical Charges in Flatland

In this series of lectures we give an introduction to the concept of asymptotic symmetry analysis with a focus on asymptotically flat spacetimes in 2+1 dimensions. We explain general ideas of

Aspects of the BMS/CFT correspondence

After a review of symmetries and classical solutions involved in the AdS3/CFT2 correspondence, we apply a similar analysis to asymptotically flat spacetimes at null infinity in 3 and 4 dimensions. In

Setting the boundary free in AdS/CFT

We describe a new class of boundary conditions for AdSd+1 under which the boundary metric becomes a dynamical field. The key technical point is to show that contributions from boundary counter-terms

Boundary charges in gauge theories: using Stokes theorem in the bulk

Boundary charges in gauge theories (such as the ADM mass in general relativity) can be understood as integrals of linear conserved n - 2 forms of the free theory obtained by linearization around the

Most general flat space boundary conditions in three-dimensional Einstein gravity

We consider the most general asymptotically flat boundary conditions in three-dimensional Einstein gravity in the sense that we allow for the maximal number of independent free functions in the

Central charges in the canonical realization of asymptotic symmetries: An example from three dimensional gravity

It is shown that the global charges of a gauge theory may yield a nontrivial central extension of the asymptotic symmetry algebra already at the classical level. This is done by studying three

Gauges in three-dimensional gravity and holographic fluids

Solutions to Einstein's vacuum equations in three dimensions are locally maximally symmetric. They are distinguished by their global properties and their investigation often requires a choice of
