Soft Heisenberg Hair

Triangular Seminar Daniel Grumiller (TU Wien)

16:30 IC
room Blackett LT2

Gravity theories naturally allow for edge states generated by non-trivial boundary-condition preserving diffeomorphisms. I present a specific set of boundary conditions inspired by near horizon physics, show that it leads to soft hair excitations of black hole solutions and discuss implications for black hole entropy.
