Long Talk (20 mins) CFTs & Holography


Juan Carlos Morales Parra (Heriot-Watt University)


$\text{AdS}/\text{CFT}$ is one of the most striking correspondences in modern physics, establishing a rich and useful bridge between gravity and (conformal) gauge theories. In this talk we focus on the $\text{AdS}_3$/$\text{CFT}_2$ encarnation and use simple topological arguments to exhibit how the (quasi)Poisson structures on the phase spaces of both theories are in 1-1 correspondence. Additionally, we will indicate how this correspondence behaves under (Quasi)Poisson reduction, affinization and enhancement to supergroups. (This talk is based on joint work with Bernd Schroers).
