# Kerr/CFT Correspondence

@inproceedings{Guica2009KerrCFTC, title={Kerr/CFT Correspondence}, author={Monica M. Guica and Thomas Hartman and Wei Song and Andrew Eben Strominger}, year={2009} }

Quantum gravity in the region very near the horizon of an extreme Kerr black hole (whose angular momentum and mass are related by J=GM{sup 2}) is considered. It is shown that consistent boundary conditions exist, for which the asymptotic symmetry generators form one copy of the Virasoro algebra with central charge c{sub L}=(12J/({Dirac_h}/2{pi})). This implies that the near-horizon quantum states can be identified with those of (a chiral half of) a two-dimensional conformal field theory (CFT… Expand

The renormalized expectation value of the stress-energy tensor of a quantum field in an arbitrary quantum state near the future horizon of a rotating (Kerr) black hole is derived in two very different ways: one makes use of traditional techniques of quantum field theory in curved spacetime, augmented by a variant of the "η formalism" for handling superradiant modes.
