@article{Laddha2020TheHN, title={The Holographic Nature of Null Infinity}, author={Alok Laddha and Siddharth G. Prabhu and S. Raju and Pushkal Shrivastava}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2020} }

We argue that, in a theory of quantum gravity in a four dimensional asymptotically flat spacetime, all information about massless excitations can be obtained from an infinitesimal neighbourhood of the past boundary of future null infinity and does not require observations over all of future null infinity. Moreover, all information about the state that can be obtained through observations near a cut of future null infinity can also be obtained from observations near any earlier cut although the…

It is shown how the method for computing gravitational fine-grained entropy, developed over the past 15 years, can be extended to capture the entropy of Hawking radiation, and reveals large corrections needed for the entropy to be consistent with unitary black hole evaporation.

Because the gravitational Hamiltonian is a pure boundary term on shell, asymptotic gravitational fields store information in a manner not possible in local field theories. This fact has consequences…

A defining feature of holographic dualities is that, along with the bulk equations of motion, boundary correlators at any given time t determine those of observables deep in the bulk. We argue that…
