Higher Spin Black Holes

Regular Seminar Alejandra Castro (Amsterdam U.)

13:15 KCL
room K4.31

I'll overview recent progress on non-perturbative aspects of higher spin theories in three dimensions with emphasis on black holes. The two main results I will discuss are: 1) novel properties of extremal and BPS solutions, and 2) how to interpret a higher spin bh as a thermo-field state.
