  • Using Killing-Yano symmetries, we construct conserved charges of spacetimes that asymptotically approach to the flat or anti-de Sitter spaces only in certain directions. In D dimensions, this allows one to define gravitational charges (such as mass and angular momenta densities) of p-dimensional branes/solitons or any other extended objects that curve the transverse space into an asymptotically flat or AdS one. Our construction answers the question of what kind of charges the antisymmetric Killing-Yano tensors lead to.

  • A method is presented which allows for the computation of {l angle}{phi}{sup 2}{r angle} for scalar fields at zero and nonzero temperatures in asymptotically flat, static, spherically symmetric spacetimes. If a spacetime has event horizons, the method works in the region exterior to the outermost event horizon. The method is used to compute {l angle}{phi}{sup 2}{r angle} for massless and massive scalar fields in Reissner-Nordstroem and extreme Reissner-Nordstroem spacetimes.
  • The mapping between bulk supergravity fields in anti-de Sitter space and operators in the dual boundary conformal field theory usually relies heavily on the available global symmetries. In the present work, we study a generalization of this mapping to time dependent situations, for the simple case of collapsing shock waves in two spacetime dimensions. The construction makes use of analyticity of the conformal field theory and the properties of the asymptotic bulk geometry to reconstruct the nonanalytic bulk observables. Many of the features of this construction are expected to apply to higher dimensional asymptotically anti-de Sitter spacetimes and their conformalmore » field theory duals.« less
  • We utilize a recent formulation of a spherically symmetric spacetime endowed with a general decomposition of the energy-momentum tensor [Phys. Rev. D 75, 024031 (2007)] to derive equations governing spherically symmetric distributions of electromagnetic matter. We show the system reduces to the Reissner-Nordstrom spacetime in general, spherically symmetric coordinates in the vacuum limit. Furthermore, we show reduction to the charged Vaidya spacetime in non-null coordinates when certain equations of states are chosen. A model of gravitational collapse is discussed whereby a charged fluid resides within a boundary of finite radial extent on the initial hypersurface, and is allowed to radiatemore » charged particles. Our formalism allows for the discussion of all regions in this model without the need for complicated matching schemes at the interfaces between successive regions. As further examples we consider the collapse of a thin shell of charged matter onto a Reissner-Nordstrom black hole. Finally, we reduce the entire system of equations to the static case such that we have the equations for hydrostatic equilibrium of a charged fluid.« less
