# Lectures on Black Holes and the AdS3/CFT2 Correspondence

@article{Kraus2006LecturesOB, title={Lectures on Black Holes and the AdS3/CFT2 Correspondence}, author={Per Kraus}, journal={Lecture Notes in Physics}, year={2006}, volume={755}, pages={1-55} }

We present a detailed discussion of AdS_3 black holes and their connection to two-dimensional conformal field theories via the AdS/CFT correspondence. Our emphasis is on deriving refined versions of black hole partition functions that include the effect of higher derivative terms in the spacetime action as well as non-perturbative effects. We include background material on gravity in AdS_3, in the context of holographic renormalization.
