This question is coming from someone who has very little experience with M-Theory but is intrigued by the AdS/CFT correspondence and is beginning to study it. Why is the gauge/gravity duality ...
I know how we define a vacuum in flat space QFT and also in a curved space QFT. But, can somebody tell me how do the choice of vacuum state in (say) the CFT side of AdS/CFT changes the choice of ...
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" ...
How can I work out in detail the explicit coordinate transformation formulas needed to go from the "canonical" coordinates to the "Poincare patch"? I'm reading about AdS but the text takes the ...
