Local bulk operators in AdS/CFT correspondence: A holographic description of the black hole interior
Abstract
To gain insight into how bulk locality emerges from the holographic conformal field theory (CFT), we reformulate the bulktoboundary map in as local a way as possible. In previous work, we carried out this program for Lorentzian antide Sitter (AdS), and showed the support on the boundary could always be reduced to a compact region spacelike separated from the bulk point. In the present work the idea is extended to a complexified boundary, where spatial coordinates are continued to imaginary values. This continuation enables us to represent a local bulk operator as a CFT operator with support on a finite disc on the complexified boundary. We treat general AdS in Poincare coordinates and AdS{sub 3} in Rindler coordinates. We represent bulk operators inside the horizon of a BanadosTeitelboimZanelli (BTZ) black hole and we verify that the correct bulk twopoint functions are reproduced, including the divergence when one point hits the BTZ singularity. We comment on the holographic description of black holes formed by collapse and discuss locality and holographic entropy counting at finite N.
