Much Ado About Nothing Vijay Balasubramanian


We describe the semiclassical decay of a class of orbifolds of AdS space via a bubble of nothing. The bounce is the small Euclidean AdS-Schwarzschild solution. The negative cosmological constant introduces subtle features in the conservation of energy during the decay. A near-horizon limit of D3-branes in the Milne orbifold spacetime gives rise to our false… (More)
