Non-Spherical Horizons

  title={Non-Spherical Horizons},
  author={David R. Morrison and M. Ronen Plesser},
We formulate an extension of Maldacena’s AdS/CFT conjectures to the case of branes located at singular points in the ambient transverse space. For singularities which occur at finite distance in the moduli space of M or F theory models with spacetime-filling branes, the conjectures identify the worldvolume theory on the p-branes with a compactification of M or IIB theory on AdSp+2 × HD−p−2. We show how the singularity determines the horizon H, and demonstrate the relationship between global… CONTINUE READING
