Abstract

In anti-de Sitter space a highly accelerating observer perceives a Rindler horizon. The two Rindler wedges in AdSd+1 are holographically dual to an entangled conformal field theory that lives on two boundaries with geometry ℝ × Hd−1. For AdS3, the holographic duality is especially tractable, allowing quantum-gravitational aspects of Rindler horizons to be probed. We recover the thermodynamics of Rindler-AdS space directly from the boundary conformal field theory. We derive the temperature from the two-point function and obtain the Rindler entropy density precisely, including numerical factors, using the Cardy formula. We also probe the causal structure of the spacetime, and find from the behavior of the one-point function that the CFT “knows” when a source has fallen across the Rindler horizon. This is so even though, from the bulk point of view, there are no local signifiers of the presence of the horizon. Finally, we discuss an alternate foliation of Rindler-AdS which is dual to a CFT living in de Sitter space.
