Title: An Attractor Mechanism for AdS(2) Black Holes
Date: Wed, May 22, 2019, 13:15 - 14:30
Place: Seminar Room B
Abstract: The holographic correspondence between AdS(2) and CFT(1) can be made precise in the sense of conformal perturbation theory away from the strict AdS(2) limit. We study this ``nearly” AdS(2) limit in the context of string theory and show that it is controlled by a novel attractor mechanism. This establishes a precise map between the moduli space of nearly extremal black holes and their corresponding microscopic descriptions.
