Misner String Singularity

In correspondence to AdS black hole solutions, what does it mean by Misner string singularities? And when there are no Misner string singularities, what does this mean in terms of curvature ...

Role of the canonical ensemble and electric charge in AdS/CFT

If we consider a charged black hole in AdS spacetime, we can either do thermodynamics in the grand canonical or the canonical ensemble. In the former, we fix the electrostatic potential ...

Confinement of charged tachyons in AdS spacetime

It is well known that the negative cosmological constant of AdS spacetime can act like a confining potential. That is, in contrast to asymptotically flat spacetime, in an asymptotically AdS spacetime ...

Thermal AdS and the Hawking Page phase transition

I have some difficulty understanding the concept of pure thermal radiation, as described in Hawking and Page's paper on the Hawking-Page phase transition. The four-dimensional thermal AdS solution ...

does the background spacetime of a black hole affects its thermodynamic properties?

The question is this: will the thermodynamic properties of a black hole (Hawking radiation spectra and temperature, entropy, area, etc.) depend if the black hole sits in a DeSitter or an Anti-DeSitter ...

Why is spacetime near a quantum black hole approximately AdS?

In this link, one of the answers contains the statement If you examine the space-time near a finite area quantum black hole, you will see an approximate AdS space. Presumably "approximate" ...

Why is BTZ black hole asymptotically $AdS_3$?

The metric for the BTZ black hole is $ds^2=-N^2dt^2+N^{-2}dr^2+r^2(N^\phi dt +d\phi)^2$ where $N^2=-M+\frac{r^2}{l^2}+\frac{J^2}{4r^2}$ and $N^\phi=-\frac{J}{2r^2}$. It is often said that BTZ black ...
