Abstract When does a holographic CFT with a boundary added to it (a BCFT) also have a ‘good’ holographic dual with a localized gravitating end-of-the-world brane? We argue that the answer to this question is almost never. By studying Lorentzian BCFT correlators, we characterize constraints imposed on a BCFT by the existence of a bulk causal structure. We argue that approximate ‘bulk brane’ singularities place restrictive constraints on the spectrum of a BCFT that are not expected to be true… 

BCFT and Islands in two dimensions

Abstract By combining the AdS/BCFT correspondence and the brane world holography, we expect an equivalence relation between a boundary conformal field theory (BCFT) and a gravitational system

Brane dynamics of holographic BCFTs

In this paper we study various dynamical aspects of the AdS/BCFT correspondence in higher dimensions. We study properties of holographic stress energy tensor by analyzing the metric perturbation in

Analytic bootstrap in 2D boundary conformal field theory: towards braneworld holography

Abstract Recently, boundary conformal field theories (BCFTs) have attracted much attention in the context of quantum gravity. This is because a BCFT can be dual to gravity coupled to a heat bath

Bounds on gravitational brane couplings and tomography in AdS3 black hole microstates

We study information theoretic properties of planar black hole microstates in 2 + 1 dimensional asymptotically anti-de Sitter spacetime, modeled by black holes with an end-of-the-world brane behind

Sailing past the End of the World and discovering the Island

Large black holes in anti-de Sitter space have positive specific heat and do not evaporate. In order to mimic the behavior of evaporating black holes, one may couple the system to an external bath.

Holographic coarse-graining: correlators from the entanglement wedge and other reduced geometries

Abstract There is some tension between two well-known ideas in holography. On the one hand, subregion duality asserts that the reduced density matrix associated with a limited region of the boundary

Mapping out the internal space in AdS/BCFT with Wilson loops

Abstract We study Wilson loops in string theory realizations of AdS/BCFT and wedge holography. The field theories are based on 3d $$ \mathcal{N} $$ N = 4 long quiver gauge theories engineered by

The spectrum of boundary states in symmetric orbifolds

We give an explicit construction of the complete set of Cardy boundary states that respect the extended chiral algebra for symmetric product orbifolds. The states are labelled by a choice of seed

Some results in AdS/BCFT

In this paper, we study the AdS/BCFT construction in the BTZ black hole spacetime. In previous work, AdS/BCFT correspondence was studied in the noncompact BTZ metric without periodic identifications.

Universal dynamics of heavy operators in boundary CFT2

Abstract We derive a universal asymptotic formula for generic boundary conditions for the average value of the bulk-to-boundary and boundary Operator Product Expansion coefficients of any unitary,



Aspects of AdS/BCFT

A bstractWe expand the results of arXiv:1105.5165, where a holographic description of a conformal field theory defined on a manifold with boundaries (so called BCFT) was proposed, based on AdS/CFT.

Looking for a bulk point

A bstractWe consider Lorentzian correlators of local operators. In perturbation theory, singularities occur when we can draw a position-space Landau diagram with null lines. In theories with gravity

Towards a reconstruction of general bulk metrics

We prove that the metric of a general holographic spacetime can be reconstructed (up to an overall conformal factor) from distinguished spatial slices—‘light-cone cuts’—of the conformal boundary. Our

Open and closed string interpretation of SUSY CFT's on branes with boundaries

We consider certain supersymmetric configurations of intersecting branes and branes ending on branes and analyze the duality between their open and closed string interpretation. The examples we study

The Dictionary for Double Holography and Graviton Masses in d Dimensions

Doubly-holographic models, also known as Karch-Randall brane worlds, have shown to be very useful for understanding recent developments around computing entropies in semi-classical gravity coupled to

Emergent spacetime and holographic CFTs

A bstractWe discuss universal properties of conformal field theories with holographic duals. A central feature of these theories is the existence of a low-lying sector of operators whose correlators

Holography from Conformal Field Theory

The locality of bulk physics at distances below the AdS length scale is one of the remarkable aspects of AdS/CFT duality, and one of the least tested. It requires that the AdS radius be large

Simple holographic duals to boundary CFTs

A bstractBy relaxing the regularity conditions imposed in arXiv:1107.1722 on half-BPS solutions to six-dimensional Type 4b supergravity, we enlarge the space of solutions to include two new half-BPS

Double Holography as a Model for Black Hole Complementarity

This paper studies the relation between different measures of entropy in a doubly-holographic model of a black hole coupled to a bath. The model relates a d+ 1-dimensional AdS bulk to two

An effective matrix model for dynamical end of the world branes in Jackiw-Teitelboim gravity

We study Jackiw-Teitelboim gravity with dynamical end of the world branes in asymptotically nearly AdS 2 spacetimes. We quantize this theory in Lorentz signature, and compute the Euclidean path
