We examine the achronal averaged null energy condition~(ANEC) for a class of conformal field theories~(CFT) at strong coupling in curved spacetime. By applying the AdS/CFT duality, we find holographic models which violate the achronal ANEC for $3+1$ and $4+1$-dimensional boundary theories. In our model, the bulk spacetime is an asymptotically AdS v...

Superstrata are smooth horizonless microstate geometries for the supersymmetric D1-D5-P black hole in type IIB supergravity. In the CFT, 'superstratum states' are defined to be the component of the supergraviton gas that is obtained by breaking the CFT into '$|00\rangle$-strands' and acting on each strand with the 'small,' anomaly-free superconform...

A rigorous probabilistic construction of Liouville conformal field theory (LCFT) on the Riemann sphere was recently given by David-Kupiainen and the last two authors. In this paper, we focus on the connection between LCFT and the classical Liouville field theory via the semiclassical approach. LCFT depends on a parameter $\gamma \in (0,2)$ and the ...

We deform two-dimensional quantum field theories by antisymmetric combinations of their conserved currents that generalize Smirnov and Zamolodchikov's $T\bar{T}$ deformation. We obtain that energy levels on a circle obey a transport equation analogous to the Burgers equation found in the $T\bar{T}$ case. This equation relates charges at any value o...

We define a three-dimensional quantum theory of gravity as the holographic dual of the Liouville conformal field theory. The theory is consistent and unitary by definition. The corresponding theory of gravity with negative cosmological constant has peculiar properties. The quantum theory has no normalisable AdS3 vacuum. The model contains primary b...
