On the holographic renormalization group

- J. Boer, E. Verlinde, H. Verlinde
- Physics
- 2 December 1999

We propose a direct correspondence between the classical evolution equations of $5-d$ supergravity and the renormalization group (RG) equations of the dual $4-d$ large $N$ gauge theory. Using… Expand

Six-dimensional supergravity on S3 × AdS3 and 2d conformal field theory

- J. Boer
- Physics
- 12 June 1998

In this paper we study the relation between six-dimensional supergravity compactified on S 3 × AdS3 and certain two-dimensional conformal field theories. We compute the Kaluza-Klein spectrum of… Expand

Holographic Thermalization

- V. Balasubramanian, A. Bernamonti, +7 authors W. Staessens
- Physics
- 14 March 2011

V. Balasubramanian, A. Bernamonti, J. de Boer, N. Copland, B. Craps, E. Keski-Vakkuri, B. Müller, A. Schäfer, M. Shigemori, and W. Staessens David Rittenhouse Laboratory, University of Pennsylvania,… Expand

Mass, entropy and holography in asymptotically de Sitter spaces

- V. Balasubramanian, J. Boer, D. Minic
- Physics
- 11 October 2001

We propose a novel prescription for computing the boundary stress tensor and charges of asymptotically de Sitter (dS) spacetimes from data at early or late time infinity. If there is a holographic… Expand

Permeable conformal walls and holography

- C. Bachas, J. Boer, R. Dijkgraaf, H. Ooguri
- Physics
- 23 November 2001

We study conformal field theories in two dimensions separated by domain walls, which preserve at least one Virasoro algebra. We develop tools to study such domain walls, extending and clarifying the… Expand

Exotic branes and nongeometric backgrounds

- J. Boer, M. Shigemori
- Physics
- 14 April 2010

When string or M theory is compactified to lower dimensions, the U-duality symmetry predicts so-called exotic branes whose higher-dimensional origin cannot be explained by the standard string or… Expand

Exotic Branes in String Theory

- J. Boer, M. Shigemori
- Physics
- 26 September 2012

Abstract Besides the familiar D-branes, string theory contains a vast number of other non-perturbative objects. While a complete classification is lacking, many of these objects are related to each… Expand

Dynamics of N=2 supersymmetric gauge theories in three-dimensions

We study the structure of the moduli spaces of vacua and superpotentials of N = 2 supersymmetric gauge theories in three dimensions. By analyzing the instanton corrections, we compute the exact… Expand

Mirror Symmetry in Three-Dimensional Gauge Theories, Quivers and D-Branes

We construct and analyze dual N = 4 supersymmetric gauge theories in three dimensions with unitary and symplectic gauge groups. The gauge groups and the field content of the theories are encoded in… Expand

Brownian Motion in AdS/CFT

- J. Boer, V. Hubeny, M. Rangamani, M. Shigemori
- Physics
- 30 December 2008

We study Brownian motion and the associated Langevin equation in AdS/CFT. The Brownian particle is realized in the bulk spacetime as a probe fundamental string in an asymptotically AdS black hole… Expand
