Chiral boundary conditions for singletons and W-branes

We revisit the holographic dictionary for a free massless scalar in AdS3, focusing on the ‘singleton’ solutions for which the boundary profile is an arbitrary chiral function. We look for consistent boundary conditions which include this class of solutions. On one hand, we give a no-go argument that they cannot be interpreted within any boundary condition which preserves full ...

Multi-centered AdS3 solutions from Virasoro conformal blocks

We revisit the construction of multi-centered solutions in three-dimensional anti-de Sitter gravity in the light of the recently discovered connection between particle worldlines and classical Virasoro conformal blocks. We focus on multi-centered solutions which represent the backreaction of point masses moving on helical geodesics in global AdS3, and argue that their construction ...

On big crunch solutions in Prokushkin-Vasiliev theory

We construct simple solutions of three-dimensional higher spin gravity interacting with matter in which only the scalar and spin-two fields are excited. They preserve Lorentz symmetry and are similar to the four-dimensional solutions constructed by Sezgin and Sundell, with the difference that the additional twisted sectors of the three-dimensional theory are excited. Furthermore, ...

Quantization of conical spaces in 3D gravity

We discuss the quantization and holographic aspects of a class of conical spaces in 2+1 dimensional pure AdS gravity. These appear as topological solitons in the Chern-Simons formulation of the theory and are closely related to the recently studied conical solutions in higher spin gravity. We discuss the classical fluctuations around these solutions, which form exceptional ...

Microstate solutions from black hole deconstruction

We present a new family of asymptotic AdS 3 × S 2 solutions to eleven dimensional supergravity compactified on a Calabi-Yau threefold. They originate from the backreaction of S 2-wrapped M2-branes, which play a central role in the deconstruction proposal for the microscopic interpretation of the D4-D0 black hole entropy. We show that they are free of possible pathologies such as ...

Unlocking the axion-dilaton in 5D supergravity

We revisit supersymmetric solutions to five dimensional ungauged N=1 supergravity with dynamic hypermultiplets. In particular we focus on a truncation to the axion-dilaton contained in the universal hypermultiplet. The relevant solutions are fibrations over a four-dimensional Kähler base with a holomorphic axion-dilaton. We focus on solutions with additional symmetries and classify ...

Chronology protection and the stringy exclusion principle

We construct a family of supersymmetric solutions to supergravity in three dimensions with a negative cosmological constant, that correspond to type IIB seven branes wrapped on an internal S3×T4. These solutions are generalizations of the three dimensional Gödel universe and have closed timelike curves. We propose an enhançon-like mechanism for excising the closed timelike curve ...
