  • Badenhorst, Phillip (University of Pretoria, 2019)
    The study of higher spin gravity theories has gathered much interest in recent years. In three dimensions, these theories are particularly tractable due to the fact that they can be de ned in terms of a Chern-Simons ...
  • Mvondo-She, Yannick (University of Pretoria, 2019)
    The primary goal of this thesis is the study of the 1-loop partition function of critical topologically massive gravity, a theory conjectured to be dual to a logarithmic conformal field theory through the AdS3/LCFT2 ...
  • Nxumalo, Dumisani (University of Pretoria, 2019)
    The goal of this master's research has been to ascertain whether Kerr/CFT correspondence techniques can be applied to black rings to better understand their CFT duals. Our e orts were largely focused on the hidden conformal ...
  • Dlamini, Siphesihle Hector (University of Pretoria, 2016)
    The Leigh-Strassler theories are marginal deformations of the N = 4 SYM theory preserving N = 1 Supersymmetry. As such they admit a Hopf algebra structure which is a quantum group deformation of the SU(3) structure of the ...
  • Lukhozi, Sipho Sihle (University of Pretoria, 2017)
    This project concerns the understanding of the thermodynamic properties of higher spin black holes in AdS3. Through the conjectured Minimal Model/Higher Spin duality, the partition functions of such black holes should ...
