Description

If the holographic principle is a true aspect of Nature it must work beyond AdS/CFT. In this talk I address a particular aspect of the question how general holography is by considering flat space holography. I report recent progress, in particular the calculation of stress tensor correlators in three-dimensional gravity, microstate counting and holographic entanglement entropy, all of which match beautifully the corresponding results in the dual Galilean conformal field theory.
