Effective actions for near extremal black holes and gauge fields in AdS2

Regular Seminar Ioannis Papadimitriou (KIAS)

13:15 KCL
room S2.49

I will discuss consistent reductions of pure AdS gravity in 3D and 5D to 2D and use them to derive effective actions for the near conformal quantum mechanics dual to the near extremal BTZ and Kerr-AdS5 black holes, respectively. The role of AdS2 gauge fields and their boundary conditions will be discussed in detail.
