Online Seminar

About 30 years ago, Horne and Horowitz described a three-dimensional black string solution sharing many qualitative features of the Reissner-Nordstrom black hole. Viewing the black string as a certain deformation of the BTZ black hole, we will give evidence that its field theory dual consists in an irrelevant deformation of a 2d CFT of the TTbar form. Based on 1911.12359 with Luis Apolo and Wei Song.
