Extracting spacetimes using the AdS/CFT conjecture

Abstract

We present analytic methods for extracting a class of bulk geometries given information of certain physical quantities in the boundary CFT. More specifically we look at singular correlators and entanglement entropy in the CFT to provide information of null and spacelike geodesics repectively in the bulk. We show that static spherically symmetric, asymptotically AdS spacetimes which do not admit null circular orbits can be fully recovered, and that any spacetime can be recovered up to the local maximum of the potential. We provide analytical and numerical examples to verify the methods used. ∗s.c.bilson@durham.ac.uk
