We mainly study real Klein-Gordon theory on Anti de Sitter spacetimes, and apply the General Boundary Formulation (GBF) of Quantum Theory in order to compute a radial S-matrix. We consider first the classical theory, giving a complete list of Klein-Gordon solutions and the actions of the isometries of AdS on them. We study two symplectic structures on spaces of such solutions, and show that they are invariant under all isometries' actions. We also calculate the flat limits of the involved… 



Complex structures for an S-matrix of Klein–Gordon theory on AdS spacetimes

While the standard construction of the S-matrix fails on anti-de Sitter (AdS) spacetime, a generalized S-matrix makes sense, based on the hypercylinder geometry induced by the boundary of AdS. In

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

On the structure of the S-matrix in general boundary quantum field theory in curved space

We use the general boundary formulation (GBF) of quantum field theory to compute the S-matrix for a general interacting scalar field in curved spacetime. This S-matrix is obtained as the asymptotic

Coordinate representation of particle dynamics in AdS and generic static spacetimes

We discuss the quantum dynamics of a particle in static curved spacetimes in a coordinate representation. The scheme is based on the analysis of the squared energy operator E2, which is quadratic in

General boundary quantum field theory: Timelike hypersurfaces in the Klein-Gordon theory

We show that the real massive Klein-Gordon theory admits a description in terms of states on various timelike hypersurfaces and amplitudes associated with regions bounded by them. This realizes

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,

What do CFTs tell us about anti-de Sitter spacetimes?

The AdS/CFT conjecture relates quantum gravity on anti-de Sitter (AdS) space to a conformal field theory (CFT) defined on the spacetime boundary. We interpret the CFT in terms of natural analogues of
