# Three-dimensional quantum geometry and black holes

@inproceedings{Banados1998ThreedimensionalQG, title={Three-dimensional quantum geometry and black holes}, author={M'aximo Banados}, year={1998} }

We review some aspects of three-dimensional quantum gravity with emphasis in the ‘CFT → Geometry’ map that follows from the BrownHenneaux conformal algebra. The general solution to the classical equations of motion with anti-de Sitter boundary conditions is displayed. This solution is parametrized by two functions which become Virasoro operators after quantisation. A map from the space of states to the space of classical solutions is exhibited. Some recent proposals to understand the Bekenstein…
