On the cigar CFT and Schwarzschild horizons

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Aspects of shock waves and instantly-created folded strings operators in the supersymmetric SL(2)k/U(1) CFT, and their relevance to the near-horizon physics of Schwarzschild black holes in perturbative superstring theory, are presented.
