A bstractWarped conformal field theory (WCFT) is a two dimensional quantum field theory whose local symmetry algebra consists of a Virasoro algebra and a U(1) Kac-Moody algebra. In this paper, we study correlation functions for primary operators in WCFT. Similar to conformal symmetry, warped conformal symmetry is very constraining. The form of the two and three point functions are determined by the global warped conformal symmetry while the four point functions can be determined up to an… 
Complexity of warped conformal field theory
Warped conformal field theories in two dimensions are exotic nonlocal, Lorentz violat-ing field theories characterized by Virasoro-Kac-Moody symmetries and have attracted a lot of attention as

Modular Hamiltonians in flat holography and (W)AdS/WCFT
Abstract We study several aspects of holographic entanglement in two models known as flat3/BMSFT and (W)AdS3/WCFT. These are two examples of holography beyond AdS/CFT where the boundary field

Warped Weyl fermion partition functions
A bstractWarped conformal field theories (WCFTs) are a novel class of non-relativistic theories. A simple, yet non-trivial, example of such theory is a massive Weyl fermion in (1 + 1)-dimensions,
Topologically massive gravity and galilean conformal algebra: a study of correlation functions
The Galilean Conformal Algebra (GCA) arises from the conformal algebra in the non-relativistic limit. In two dimensions, one can view it as a limit of linear combinations of the two copies Virasoro
Virasoro conformal blocks and thermality from classical background fields
A bstractWe show that in 2d CFTs at large central charge, the coupling of the stress tensor to heavy operators can be re-absorbed by placing the CFT in a non-trivial background metric. This leads to
Generalized Gravitational Entropy for Warped Anti-de Sitter Space.
An explicit calculation is carried out for three-dimensional warped anti-de Sitter spacetime in a consistent truncation of string theory, the so-called S-dual dipole theory, and it turns out that the generalized gravitational entropy is captured by the least action of a charged particle in WAdS_{3} space.
