Quantum Black Holes as Holograms in AdS Braneworlds

  title={Quantum Black Holes as Holograms in AdS Braneworlds},
  author={Roberto Emparan},
We propose a new approach for using the AdS/CFT correspondence to study quantum black hole physics. The black holes on a brane in an AdSD+1 braneworld that solve the classical bulk equations are interpreted as duals of quantum-corrected Ddimensional black holes, rather than classical ones, of a conformal field theory coupled to gravity. We check this explicitly in D = 3 and D = 4. In D = 3 we reinterpret the existing exact solutions on a flat membrane as states of the dual 2 + 1 CFT. We show… CONTINUE READING
