I have a simple question about Lewkowycz and Maldacena's paper [/PLAIN] [Broken](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

http://arxiv.org/abs/1304.4926v2

In section 2, they consider the scalar field in BTZ background ground and require boundary condition of the scalar field,

$\phi \sim e^{i\tau}$ . This boudary condition breaks the U(1) isomentry of BTZ background. My question is what kinds of boudary condition will respect the U(1) isometry? $\phi$does not depend on $ \tau$?

Have something to add?
