Probing higher spin black holes
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Sungjay Lee.
I will discuss recent progress in understanding higher spin black holes and their interactions with scalar fields, in the context of Vasiliev’s 3d theory of higher spin gravity. This is relevant for the holographic duality with a certain class of 2d minimal model CFTs, proposed by Gaberdiel and Gopakumar. Despite unusual aspects of causality in higher spin gravity, the behavior of scalar boundary correlators in the black hole background appears consistent with a conventional black hole interpretation.
