Gravitational Wilson Lines in 3D de Sitter

27 Jul 2020  ·  Castro Alejandra, Sabella-Garnier Philippe, Zukowski Claire ·

We construct local probes in the static patch of Euclidean dS$_3$ gravity. These probes are Wilson line operators, designed by exploiting the Chern-Simons formulation of 3D gravity... Our prescription uses non-unitary representations of $so(4)\simeq su(2)_L\times su(2)_R$, and we evaluate the Wilson line for states satisfying a singlet condition. We discuss how to reproduce the Green's functions of massive scalar fields in dS$_3$, the construction of bulk fields, and the quasinormal mode spectrum. We also discuss the interpretation of our construction in Lorentzian signature in the inflationary patch, via $SL(2,\mathbb{C})$ Chern-Simons theory. read more
