AdS-Carroll branes


I will discuss how coset methods can be used to determine the action of a co-dimension one brane embedded in AdS space in the Carroll limit in which the speed of light goes to zero.  The action is invariant under the non-linearly realized symmetries of the AdS-Carroll spacetime. The Nambu-Goldstone field exhibits a static spatial distribution for the brane with a time varying momentum density related to the brane's spatial shape as well as the AdS-C geometry.
