# Hidden Conformal Symmetry of the Kerr Black Hole

@article{Castro2010HiddenCS, title={Hidden Conformal Symmetry of the Kerr Black Hole}, author={Alejandra Castro and Alexander Maloney and Andrew Strominger}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2010}, volume={82}, pages={024008} }

Extreme and very-near-extreme spin $J$ Kerr black holes have been conjectured to be holographically dual to two-dimensional (2D) conformal field theories (CFTs) with left and right central charges ${c}_{L}={c}_{R}=12J$. In this paper it is observed that the 2D conformal symmetry of the scalar wave equation at low frequencies persists for generic nonextreme values of the mass $M\ensuremath{\ne}\sqrt{J}$. Interestingly, this conformal symmetry is not derived from a conformal symmetry of the… Expand
