Formatted abstract
The near-horizon geometry of the extremal four-dimensional Kerr black hole and certain generalizations thereof has an SL(2, ℝ) × U(1) isometry group. Excitations around this geometry can be controlled by imposing appropriate boundary conditions. For certain boundary conditions, the U(1) isometry is enhanced to a Virasoro algebra. Here, we propose a free-field construction of this Virasoro algebra.
