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. 

AdS(3), black holes and higher derivative corrections

Using AdS/CFT correspondence and the Euclidean action formalism for black hole entropy Kraus and Larsen have argued that the entropy of a BTZ black hole in three dimensional supergravity with (0,4)

On heterotic black holes and EVH/CFT correspondence

We study the near-horizon geometry of four-dimensional charged static black holes in heterotic string theory and analyze the possible dynamical emergence of dual IR conformal field theory. We find

Chiral anomalies and AdS/CMT in two dimensions

I clarify some recent confusion regarding the holographic description of finite-density systems in two dimensions. Notably, the chiral anomaly for symmetry currents in 2d conformal field theories

5D Black Holes and Strings with Higher Derivatives

We find asymptotically flat black hole and string solutions to 5D supergravity in the presence of higher derivative terms. In some cases, including the fundamental heterotic string solution, the

Five-dimensional heterotic black holes and its dual IR-CFT

We analyze the possible dynamical emergence of IR conformal field theory describing the low-energy excitations of near-extremal black holes in five-dimensional compactification of heterotic strings.

Conformal symmetry for black holes in four dimensions

A bstractWe show that the asymptotic boundary conditions of general asymptotically flat black holes in four dimensions can be modified such that a conformal symmetry emerges. The black holes with the

STRING THEORY EFFECTS ON FIVE-DIMENSIONAL BLACK HOLE PHYSICS

We review recent developments in understanding quantum/string corrections to BPS black holes and strings in five-dimensional supergravity. These objects are solutions to the effective action obtained

Black Holes and Strings with Higher Derivatives

We find asymptotically flat black hole and string solutions to 5D supergravity in the presence of higher derivative terms. In some cases, including the fundamental heterotic string solution, the

Higher spin black holes from CFT

A bstractHigher spin gravity in three dimensions has explicit black holes solutions, carrying higher spin charge. We compute the free energy of a charged black hole from the holographic dual, a 2d

Warped AdS3 black holes in higher derivative gravity theories

A bstractWe consider warped AdS3 black holes in generic higher derivatives gravity theories in 2+1 dimensions. The asymptotic symmetry group of the phase space containing these black holes is the

We develop the spacetime aspects of the computation of partition functions for string/M-theory on AdS3 × M. Subleading corrections to the semi-classical result are included systematically, laying the

The duality relating near-horizon microstates of black holes obtained as orbifolds of a subset of AdS3 to the states of a conformal field theory is analyzed in detail. The SL(2,R)L?SL(2,R)R invariant

TLDR
It is shown that there is a simple D-brane description which precisely reproduces the Hawking-Bekenstein entropy in the extremal limit, even though supersymmetry is completely broken.
