The RN/CFT correspondence revisited

  • Chiang-Mei Chen
  • Jia-Rui Sun
  • Shou-Jyun Zou


We reconsidered the quantum gravity description of the near horizon extremal Reissner-Nordstrøm black hole in the viewpoint of the AdS2/CFT1 correspondence. We found that, for pure electric case, the right moving central charge of dual 1D CFT is 6Q 2 which is different from the previous result 6Q 3 of left moving sector obtained by warped AdS3/CFT2 description. We discussed the discrepancy in these two approaches and examined novel properties of our result.
