We demonstrate that the near-horizon physics, the Hawking radiation, and the reflection off the radial potential barrier can be understood entirely within a conformal field theory picture in terms of one- and two-point functions in the boundary Liouville theory. An important element in this demonstration is the notion of horizon state, the Hawking radiation being interpreted as a result of the transition of horizon state to the ordinary states propagating outside the black hole horizon. 

General Rotating Black Hole with Four Charges and Liouville Theory

By considering the dual Liouville theory emerging in the near-horizon limit, we study the thermodynamics of general rotating black hole with four charges in four dimensions. Both the black hole

Black hole entropy, universality, and horizon constraints

To ask a question about a black hole in quantum gravity, one must restrict initial or boundary data to ensure that a black hole is actually present. For two-dimensional dilaton gravity, and probably

Horizons, Constraints, and Black Hole Entropy

Abstract Black hole entropy appears to be “universal”—many independent calculations, involving models with very different microscopic degrees of freedom, all yield the same density of states. I

Conformal field theory, (2 + 1)-dimensional gravity and the BTZ black hole

In three spacetime dimensions, general relativity becomes a topological field theory, whose dynamics can be largely described holographically by a two-dimensional conformal field theory at the

A scattering approach to some aspects of the Schwarzschild black hole

A bstractIn this paper, we consider a massless field, with spin j, in interaction with a Schwarzschild black hole in four dimensions, focusing mainly our study on the s-wave scattering. First, using

Massive particle radiation from Gibbons—Maeda black hole

This paper investigated the massive particle radiation from Gibbons—Maeda black hole by using a semi-classical method. The calculations showed that, if the self-gravitation of the radiated particle



Black hole entropy from near-horizon microstates

Black holes whose near-horizon geometries are locally, but not necessarily globally, AdS3 (three-dimensional anti-de Sitter space) are considered. Using the fact that quantum gravity on AdS3 is a

Correlators in Timelike Bulk Liouville Theory

Liouville theory with a negative norm boson and no screening charge corresponds to an exact classical solution of closed bosonic string theory describing time-dependent bulk tachyon condensation. A

Horizon Holography

A holographic correspondence between horizon data and space-time physics is investigated. We find similarities with the AdS/CFT correspondence, based on the observation that the optical metric near

Black Hole Entropy from Conformal Field Theory in Any Dimension

Restricted to a black hole horizon, the ``gauge'' algebra of surface deformations in general relativity contains a Virasoro subalgebra with a calculable central charge. The fields in any quantum

Timelike boundary Liouville theory

The timelike boundary Liouville (TBL) conformal field theory consisting of a negative norm boson with an exponential boundary interaction is considered. TBL and its close cousin, a positive norm

Black hole greybody factors and D -brane spectroscopy

Black holes do not Hawking radiate strictly blackbody radiation due to well-known frequency-dependent greybody factors. These factors arise from frequency-dependent potential barriers outside the

Universal low-energy dynamics for rotating black holes

Fundamental string theory has been used to show that low-energy excitations of certain black holes are described by a two-dimensional conformal field theory. This picture has been found to be

It is shown that the entropy of the (2+1)-dimensional black hole can be obtained as the logarithm of the number of microscopic states, leading to the appearance of new physical states at the horizon.
