Perhaps this is a naive question, but in my recent (admittedly limited) readings about AdS spaces, I keep wondering why they seem to be such a hotbed for theoretical research (AdS/CFT correspondence, ...
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 ...
So as I understand it, localized structures in AdS can wick rotated to dS, the boundary has to be complixified as can be seen here. Also, uplifting is another technique that can be used to move from ...
