Lectures on black holes and the AdS3/CFT2 correspondence. (English) Zbl 1155.83303
Bellucci, Stefano (ed.), Supersymmetric mechanics. Vol. 3: Attractors and black holes in supersymmetric gravity. Berlin: Springer (ISBN 978-3-540-79522-3/hbk). Lecture Notes in Physics 755, 193-247 (2008).
Summary: We present a detailed discussion of \(\text{AdS}_3\) black holes and their connection to two-dimensional conformal field theories via the AdS/CFT correspondence. Our emphasis is on deriving refined versions of black hole partition functions that include the effect of higher derivative terms in the spacetime action as well as non-perturbative effects. We include background material on gravity in \(\text{AdS}_3\), in the context of holographic renormalization.
