Title: Spherically expanding matter in AdS/CFT correspondence

Abstract

We discuss an exact time dependent O(3) symmetric solution with a horizon of the 5d AdS classical gravity equations searching for a 4d boundary theory which would correspond to expanding gauge theory matter. The boundary energy-momentum tensor and entropy density are computed. The boundary metric is the flat Friedmann one and any time dependence on the boundary is incompatible with the Minkowski metric. At large times when curvature effects are negligible, perfect fluid behavior arises in a natural way.

  • Using the counterterm subtraction technique we calculate the stress-energy tensor, action, and other physical quantities for Kerr-AdS black holes in various dimensions. For Kerr-AdS{sub 5} black holes with both rotation parameters nonzero, we demonstrate that the stress-energy tensor, in the zero mass parameter limit, is equal to the stress tensor of the weakly coupled four dimensional dual field theory. As a result, the total energy of the general Kerr-AdS{sub 5} black hole at zero mass parameter exactly matches the Casimir energy of the dual field theory. We show that at high temperature the general Kerr-AdS{sub 5} and perturbative field theorymore » stress-energy tensors are equal, up to the usual factor of 3/4. We also use the counterterm technique to calculate the stress tensors and actions for Kerr-AdS{sub 6} and Kerr-AdS{sub 7} black holes, with one rotation parameter, and we display the results. We discuss the conformal anomalies of the dual field theories to the Kerr-AdS{sub 5} and Kerr-AdS{sub 7} spacetimes. In these two field theories, we show that the rotation parameters break conformal invariance but not scale invariance, a novel result for a nontrivial field theory. For Kerr-AdS{sub 7} black holes the conformal anomalies calculated on the gravity side and the dual (0,2) tensor multiplet theory are equal up to a factor of 4/7x4N{sup 3}. We expect that the Casimir energy of the free field theory is the same as the energy of the Kerr-AdS{sub 7} black hole (with zero mass parameter), up to that factor.« less
  • We test the AdS-CFT correspondence in the case of a d=4 N=2 superconformal field theory by comparing chiral anomalies which are of order [ital N] in the [close quote]t Hooft large [ital N] limit. These include corrections of order 1/N to the conformal anomaly, thus testing the correspondence beyond the extreme large [ital N] limit. The field theory anomalies are reproduced by terms in the 7-brane effective action in the bulk. [copyright] [ital 1999] [ital The American Physical Society]
  • The order g{sup 2} radiative corrections to all two- and three-point correlators of the composite primary operators TrthinspX{sup k} are computed in N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory with the gauge group SU(N). Corrections are found to vanish for all N. For k=2 this is a consequence of known superconformal nonrenormalization theorems, and for general k the result confirms an N{r_arrow}{infinity}, fixed large g{sup 2}N supergravity calculation and further conjectures by S. Lee {ital et al.}, hep-th/9806074. A three-point correlator involving N=4 descendents of TrthinspX{sup 2} is calculated, and its order g{sup 2} contribution also vanishes, giving evidence for the absence ofmore » radiative corrections in correlators of descendent operators. {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society}« less
  • The information paradox in the quantum evolution of black holes is studied within the framework of the anti{endash}de Sitter{endash}conformal field theory (AdS-CFT) correspondence. The unitarity of the CFT strongly suggests that all information about an initial state that forms a black hole is returned in the Hawking radiation. The CFT dynamics implies an information retention time of the order of the black-hole lifetime. This fact determines many qualitative properties of the nonlocal effects that must show up in a semiclassical effective theory in the bulk. We argue that no violations of causality are apparent to local observers, but the semiclassicalmore » theory in the bulk duplicates degrees of freedom inside and outside the event horizon. Nonlocal quantum effects are required to eliminate this redundancy. This leads to a breakdown of the usual classical-quantum correspondence principle in Lorentzian black-hole spacetimes. {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society}« less
  • According to one of Maldacena's dualities, type IIB string theory on AdS{sub 3} x S{sup 3} x K3 is equivalent to a certain N = (4, 4) superconformal field theory. In this note we compute the elliptic genus of the boundary theory in the supergravity approximation. A finite quantity is obtained once we introduce a particular exclusion principle. In the regime where the supergravity approximation is reliable, we find exact agreement with the elliptic genus of a sigma model with target space K3{sup N}/S{sub N}.
