Yang–Mills gravity in biconformal space
We write a gravity theory with Yang–Mills-type action using the biconformal gauging of the conformal group. We show that the resulting biconformal Yang–Mills gravity theories describe 4-dim,
New Infinities of Soft Charges
Recent results on the infrared structure of gravity and electromagnetism have suggested that the deep infrared is much richer than previously appreciated. This article presents a generalisation of
Covariant Holographic Renormalization of Non-Conformal Field Theories
We present a Covariant Holographic Renormalization (CHR) procedure of fake supergravity (sugra) systems. Holography is a strong/weak coupling duality between gravitational and gauge theories, and
A new gravity/gauge theory duality
We propose a new conformal supergravity model which is dual to a non-compact Yang-Mills theory on a flat 4-dim background. The new biconformal supergravity theory is formulated with a Yang-Mills type


Anti-de Sitter Space, Thermal Phase Transition, And Confinement in Gauge Theories
The correspondence between supergravity (and string theory) on AdS space and boundary conformal eld theory relates the thermodynamics of N = 4 super Yang-Mills theory in four dimensions to the
The Large-N Limit of Superconformal Field Theories and Supergravity
We show that the large-N limits of certainconformal field theories in various dimensions includein their Hilbert space a sector describing supergravityon the product of anti-de Sitter spacetimes,
Anti-de Sitter space and holography
Recently, it has been proposed by Maldacena that large $N$ limits of certain conformal field theories in $d$ dimensions can be described in terms of supergravity (and string theory) on the product of
Dirichlet Branes and Ramond-Ramond charges.
We show that D-branes, extended objects defined by mixed Dirichlet-Neumann boundary conditions, break half the supersymmetries of the type II superstring and carry a complete set of electric and
The world as a hologram
According to ’t Hooft the combination of quantum mechanics and gravity requires the three‐dimensional world to be an image of data that can be stored on a two‐dimensional projection much like a
Black hole explosions?
QUANTUM gravitational effects are usually ignored in calculations of the formation and evolution of black holes. The justification for this is that the radius of curvature of space-time outside the
