  • Ahmadi, Morteza; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2006Arts and SciencePhysics, 2006)
    In this thesis, aspects of the physics of black holes are reviewed and new results in black hole thermodynamics are presented. First, general black hole solutions of Einstein’s equations of general relativity are mentioned ...
  • Okeke, Nnamdi; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2006Faculty of Arts and ScienceDepartment of Physics, 2006)
    We study character generating functions (character generators) of simple Lie algebras. The expression due to Patera and Sharp, derived from the Weyl character formula, is ¯rst re- viewed. A new general formula is then ...
  • Sidhu, Steve (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Physics and Astronomy, c2012Arts and ScienceDepartment of Physics and Astronomy, 2012)
    This thesis reviews the use of 2-dimensional conformal field theory applied to gravity, specifically calculating Bekenstein-Hawking entropy of black holes in (2+1) dimensions. A brief review of general relativity, Conformal ...
  • Jakovljevic, Cvjetan; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 1996Arts and ScienceDepartment of Physics, 1996)
    Conformal field theories (CFTs) are intimately connected with Lie groups and their Lie algebras. Conformal symmetry is infinite-dimensional and therefore an infinite-dimensional algebra is required to describe it. This is ...
