Event Details

We discuss two aspects of worldsheet string dynamics in the presence of AdS3 (BTZ) black holes.  First, we construct AdS3 orbifolds describing conical defect geometries that prepare pure state black holes through Euclidean evolution, and examine aspects of the bulk/boundary correspondence.  Second, BTZ black holes can discharge by radiating wound strings; the emission probability contains lessons regarding the nature of Hawking radiation
