We propose a dual non-perturbative description for maximally extended Schwarzschild Anti-de-Sitter spacetimes. The description involves two copies of the conformal field theory associated to the AdS spacetime and an initial entangled state. In this context we also discuss a version of the information loss paradox and its resolution.

Effective Potential in Noncommutative BTZ Black Hole
In this paper, we investigated the noncommutative rotating BTZ black hole and showed that such a space-time is not maximally symmetric. We calculated effective potential for the massive and theExpand
Punctuated eternal inflation via AdS/CFT duality
The work is an attempt to model a scenario of inflation in the framework of anti-de Sitter/conformal field theory duality, a potentially complete nonperturbative description of quantum gravity. WeExpand
On charged black holes in anti-de Sitter space
We study the region inside the event horizon of charged black holes in five dimensional asymptotically anti-de Sitter space, using as a probe two-sided correlators which are dominated by spacelikeExpand
Three-dimensional de Sitter gravity and the dS/CFT correspondence
Certain aspects of three dimensional asymptotically de Sitter spaces are studied, with emphasis on the mapping between gravity observables and the representation of the conformal symmetry of theExpand
Insightful D-branes
We study a simple model of a black hole in AdS and obtain a holographic description of the region inside the horizon. A key role is played by the dynamics of the scalar fields in the dual gaugeExpand
Holography versus Correspondence principle: eternal Schwarzschild-anti-de Sitter geometry
It is shown that the correspondence principle and the holographic principle are incompatible in the background of an eternal Schwarzschild–anti-de Sitter geometry. The argument is based on theExpand
Black hole singularity in AdS/CFT
We present a short review of hep-th/0306170. In the context of AdS/CFT correspondence, we explore what information from behind the horizon of the bulk black hole geometry can be found in boundary CFTExpand
Gauge-gravity duality and the black hole interior.
The Einstein-R Rosen=Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen conjecture of Maldacena and Susskind is addressed, arguing that the correlations in generic highly entangled states cannot be geometrized as a smooth wormhole. Expand
A patchwork description of dual spacetimes in AdS/CFT
In this paper, we attempt to provide some insights into the structure of non-perturbative descriptions of quantum gravity using known examples of gauge theory/gravity duality. We argue that inExpand
Complexity and action for warped AdS black holes
A bstractThe Complexity=Action conjecture is studied for black holes in Warped AdS3 space, realized as solutions of Einstein gravity plus matter. The time dependence of the action of theExpand


A New approach to string cosmology
We discuss quotients of Anti-de Sitter (AdS) spacetime by a discrete group in light of the AdS-CFT correspondence. Some quotients describe closed universes which expand from zero volume to a maximumExpand
Black Holes and Wormholes in 2+1 Dimensions
Vacuum Einstein theory in three spacetime dimensions is locally trivial, but admits many solutions that are globally different, particularly if there is a negative cosmological constant. TheExpand

Recently, the AdS-CFT conjecture of Maldacena has been investigated in a Lorentzian signature by Balasubramanian et al. We extend this investigation to Lorentzian BTZ black hole spacetimes, and stuExpand
Vacuum polarization around a three-dimensional black hole
We calculate the Euclidean propagator for a conformally coupled massless scalar field in the background of the three-dimensional black hole. The expectation value in the Hartle--Hawking state isExpand

Inflation and holography in string theory

String theory formulation of the three-dimensional black hole.
It is shown that a slight modification of this solution yields an exact solution to string theory, which suggests that strings are not affected by a negative cosmological constant in three dimensions. Expand
