Author(s) from Durham


The AdS/CFT correspondence provides a new perspective on recurrent questions in General Relativity such as the allowed boundary conditions at infinity and the definition of gravitational conserved charges. Here we review the main insights obtained in this direction over the last decade and apply the new techniques to Topologically Massive Gravity. We show that this theory is dual to a non‐unitary CFT for any value of its parameter μ and becomes a Logarithmic CFT at μ = 1.
