A bstractIs it possible for an anisotropic Lifshitz critical point to actually exhibit isotropic conformal invariance? We answer this question in the affirmative by constructing a concrete holographic realization. We study three-dimensional spin-3 higher-spin gauge theory with a z = 2 Lifshitz ground state with non-trivial spin-3 background. We provide consistent boundary conditions and determine the associated asymptotic symmetry algebra. Surprisingly, we find that the algebra consists of two…

In this paper we present in more detail a construction using Wilson lines and the corresponding dual Galilean conformal field theory calculations for analytically determining holographic entanglement

A bstractWe equip three-dimensional spin-3 gravity in the principal embedding with a new set of boundary conditions that we call “asymptotically null warped AdS”. We find a chiral copy of the

Holographic Weyl Anomaly Matching & Black Holes in 3D Higher Spin Theories

This thesis consists of two parts. The first part addresses the issue of conformal anomaly matching from the holographic perspective and is reported in chapter 2. The second part aims to the study of

Chern-Simons Holography: Boundary Conditions, Contractions and Double Extensions for a Journey Beyond Anti-de Sitter

In this thesis Chern-Simons theories based on Lie algebras with invariant metric are constructed. It is discussed how contractions lead systematically to (higher spin) kinematical algebras of, e.g.,

Three-dimensional spin-3 theories based on general kinematical algebras

How General Is Holography

In this thesis I explore the generality of the holographic principle in 2+1 (bulk) dimensions by looking at the possibility of having holographic correspondences for non-AdS (higher-spin) spacetimes.

Higher spin holography with Galilean symmetry in general dimensions

Higher spin black holes with soft hair

A bstractWe construct a new set of boundary conditions for higher spin gravity, inspired by a recent “soft Heisenberg hair”-proposal for General Relativity on three-dimensional Anti-de Sitter space.

Asymptotic symmetries of colored gravity in three dimensions

A bstractThe gauge sector of three-dimensional higher spin gravities can be formulated as a Chern-Simons theory. In this context, a higher spin black hole corresponds to a flat connection with



Non-relativistic holography

We consider holography for d-dimensional scale invariant but non-Lorentz invariant field theories, which do not admit the full Schrodinger symmetry group. We find new realizations of the

Lifshitz gravity for Lifshitz holography.

We argue that Hořava-Lifshitz (HL) gravity provides the minimal holographic dual for Lifshitz-type field theories with anisotropic scaling and a dynamical exponent z. First we show that Lifshitz

Spacetime geometry in higher spin gravity

Higher spin gravity is an interesting toy model of stringy geometry. Particularly intriguing is the presence of higher spin gauge transformations that redefine notions of invariance in gravity: the
