|Title:||Black hole absorption cross-sections and the anti-de Sitter-conformal field theory correspondence||Authors:||Teo, E.||Issue Date:||24-Sep-1998||Citation:||Teo, E. (1998-09-24). Black hole absorption cross-sections and the anti-de Sitter-conformal field theory correspondence. Physics Letters, Section B: Nuclear, Elementary Particle and High-Energy Physics 436 (3-4) : 269-274. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Recent work has uncovered a correspondence between theories in anti-de Sitter space, and those on its boundary. This has important implications for black holes in string theory which have near-horizon AdS geometries. Using the effective coupling to the boundary conformal field theory, I compute the low-energy, s-wave absorption cross-sections for a minimally coupled scalar in the near-extremal four- and five-dimensional black holes. The results agree precisely with semi-classical gravity calculations. Agreement for fixed scalars, and for the BTZ black hole, is also found. © 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.
