Holography in anti-de Sitter gravity

Holography in anti-de Sitter gravity

About the activity

A three session minicourse introducing the main concepts of the holographic correspondence and it's applications. Suitable for final year licenciatura students, postgraduate student and interested researchers.


AdS/CFT Correspondence and holographic anomalies

Olivera Miskovic

We will introduce AdS/CFT correspondence between anti-de Sitter (AdS) gravity in d+1 dimensions and Conformal Field Theory (CFT) in d dimensions. We shall analyze matching of observables and symmetries between these two theories, and discuss holographic quantum anomalies in even-dimensional CFT.

Dr. Olivera Mišković

Dr. Olivera Mišković

She is a Serbian-Chilean theoretical physicist formed at Belgrade University. She finished her PhD in Chile at Universidad de Santiago de Chile (USACH) and Centro de Estudios de Científicos (CECs). She started working on holography in 2004 as a postdoctoral researcher of Máximo Bañados at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC), and she has been working on this subject ever since. At the moment, she is a full professor at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso.
Her research interests lie in field theory aspects of gravity (Noether charges, renormalization of the action, (super) gravity theories diverse dimensions, erc.) and black hole physics.

Dr. Rodrigo Olea

He is a Chilean theoretical physicist who got graduated from Universidad de Chile (2001). After a first postdoc at Centro de Estudios de Científicos (CECs, Valdivia), he learnt holographic techniques as a postdoc of M. Bañados at P. Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC). He was also a postdoctoral researcher at U. Tecnica Lisboa (with J. Lemos) and at U. degli Studi di Milano (with D. Klemm), and associate researcher at Universidad Católica de Valparaíso.

His research focuses on renormalization techniques and computation of holographic properties of gravity actions.
