dc.description.abstractA holographic duality is proposed relating quantum gravity on dS(D) (D-dimensional de Sitter space) to conformal field theory on a single SD-1 ((D-1)-sphere), in which bulk de Sitter correlators with points on the boundary are related to CFT correlators on the sphere, and points on I+ (the future boundary of dS(D)) are mapped to the antipodal points on SD-1 relative to those on I-. For the case of dS(3), which is analyzed in some detail, the central charge of the CFT2 is computed in an analysis of the asymptotic symmetry group at I+/-. This dS/CFT proposal is supported by the computation of correlation functions of a massive scalar field. In general the dual CFT may be non-unitary and (if for example there are sufficently massive stable scalars) contain complex conformal weights. We also consider the physical region O- of dS(3) corresponding to the causal past of a timelike observer, whose holographic dual lives on a plane rather than a sphere. O- can be foliated by asymptotically at spacelike slices. Time evolution along these slices is generated by L-0 + (L) over bar (0), and is dual to scale transformations in the boundary CFT2.
