CFT from Quantum Gravity, and Baby universes from TQFT


In this work we explore connections between Quantum Gravity, and TQFT and CFT, through the lense of holography. In Chapter 2, we compute the gravity path integral in a theory with matter described by a TQFT, and show how this corresponds to a distribution of dual (non-gravitational) theories. In Chapter 3, we again perform computations on the gravity side, this time to compute CFT data in arguably the simplest way possible.
