Emergent spacetime, and a model for unitary gravitational collapse in AdS
M. BOTTA CANTCHEFF
Encuentro; XLVIII Strings@ar; 2011
We propose a CFT unitary description of the gravitational collapse. The starting point is the model of a black hole in AdS proposed by Maldacena in arXiv: 0106112 [hep-th]. We show that by proposing a two-copies version of the AdS/CFT conjecture, the process of formation of black holes so as other spacetimes with horizons may be described as an unitary process in the dual field theory. In doing this, we construct a well defined framework to describe general spacetimes as entangled states, in terms of the spectrum of states on the exact Anti-de-Sitter background. As application, we show how the description of the Hawking-Page transition results simplified in this formalism and some novel aspects may be observed. Finally, a simplified analysis based on weakly coupled bulk fields is discussed.
