The dual of nothing.

Balasubramanian, V. and Ross, S. F. (2002) 'The dual of nothing.', Physical review D : particles and fields., 66 (8). p. 86002.

Abstract

We consider “bubbles of nothing” constructed by analytically continuing black hole solutions in anti–de Sitter space. These provide interesting examples of smooth time-dependent backgrounds which can be studied through the AdS/CFT correspondence. Our examples include bubbles constructed from Schwarzschild-AdS, Kerr-AdS and Reissner-Nordström AdS. The Schwarzschild bubble is dual to Yang-Mills theory on three-dimensional de Sitter space times a circle. We construct the boundary stress tensor of the bubble spacetime and relate it to the properties of field theory on de Sitter space.
