We use holography to examine the response of interacting quantum fields to the appearance of closed timelike curves in a dynamically evolving background that initially does not contain them. For this purpose, we study a family of two-dimensional spacetimes that model very broad classes of wormhole time machines. The behavior of strongly coupled conformal theories in these spacetimes is then holographically described by threedimensional AdS bulk geometries that we explicitly construct. The dual… Expand

Holographic dual of a time machine.
We apply the $AdS/CFT$ holography to the simplest possible eternal time machine solution in $AdS_3$ based on two conical defects moving around their center of mass along a circular orbit. ClosedExpand

Holographic Reconstruction of Spacetime¶and Renormalization in the AdS/CFT Correspondence
Abstract: We develop a systematic method for renormalizing the AdS/CFT prescription for computing correlation functions. This involves regularizing the bulk on-shell supergravity action in aExpand
Traversable asymptotically flat wormholes with short transit times
We construct traversable wormholes by starting with simple four-dimensional classical solutions respecting the null energy condition and containing a pair of oppositely charged black holes connectedExpand
Bulk curves from boundary data in holography
We embed spherical Rindler space—a geometry with a spherical hole in its center—in asymptotically anti– de Sitter (AdS) spacetime and show that it carries a gravitational entropy proportional to theExpand
Building up spacetime with quantum entanglement II: It from BC-bit
In this note, we describe how collections of arbitrary numbers of "BC-bits," distinct non-interacting quantum systems each consisting of a holographic boundary conformal field theory (BCFT), can beExpand

TLDR
A complete orthonormal set of eigenfunctions of the wave operator is found in the special case of a spacetime in which the total deficit angle is 2{pi}; the resultant interacting quantum field theory is not unitary. Expand
Quantum Field Theory on Spacetimes with a Compactly Generated Cauchy Horizon
Abstract: We prove two theorems which concern difficulties in the formulation of the quantum theory of a linear scalar field on a spacetime, , with a compactly generated Cauchy horizon. TheseExpand
Time evolution of entanglement entropy from a pulse
A bstractWe calculate the time evolution of the entanglement entropy in a 1+1 CFT with a holographic dual when there is a localized left-moving packet of energy density. We find the gravity resultExpand
Surface terms as counterterms in the AdS-CFT correspondence
We examine the recently proposed technique of adding boundary counterterms to the gravitational action for spacetimes which are locally asymptotic to anti\char21{}de Sitter spacetimes. In particular,Expand
