We consider the evolution of massive scalar fields in (asymptotically) de Sitter spacetimes of arbitrary dimension. Through the proposed dS/CFT correspondence, our analysis points to the existence of new nonlocal dualities for the Euclidean conformal field theory. A massless conformally coupled scalar field provides an example where the analysis is easily explicitly extended to 'tall' background spacetimes.

Asymptotic flatness, little string theory, and holography

We argue that any non-gravitational holographic dual to asymptotically flat string theory in d-dimensions naturally resides at spacelike infinity. Since spacelike infinity can be resovled as a (d ?

A prototype for dS/CFT

We consider dS 2 /CF T 1 where the asymptotic symmetry group of the de Sitter spacetime contains the Virasoro algebra. We construct representations of the Virasoro algebra realized in the Fock space

q-deformed de Sitter/conformal field theory correspondence

Unitary principal series representations of the conformal group appear in the de Sitter/conformal field theory (dS/CFT) correspondence. These are infinite-dimensional irreducible representations,

We consider dS{sub 2}/CFT{sub 1} where the asymptotic symmetry group of the de Sitter spacetime contains the Virasoro algebra. We construct representations of the Virasoro algebra realized in the

de Sitter symmetries and inflationary scalar-vector models

In this paper, we study the correspondence between a field theory in de Sitter space in D-dimensions and a dual conformal feld theory in a euclidean space in (D - 1)-dimensions. In particular, we

We study solutions of Einstein gravity coupled to a positive cosmological constant and matter which are asymptotically de Sitter and homogeneous. Regarded as perturbations of de Sitter space, a

We construct exact cosmological scaling solutions in gauged supergravity. We restrict to solutions for which the scalar fields trace out geodesic curves on the scalar manifold. Under these

Remark about dS / CFT correspondence

In this paper we will study some aspects of dS/CFT correspondence. We will focus on the relation between Witten's non-standard de Sitter inner product and correlators in the holographic dual
