We compute the full asymptotic symmetry group of black holes belonging to the same equivalence class of solutions within the conformal Weyl gravity formalism. We do this within an
correspondence and by performing a Robinson–Wilczek two-dimensional reduction, thus enabling the construction of effective quantum theory of the remaining field content. The resulting energy momentum tensors generate asymptotic Virasoro algebras to s
-waves, with calculable central extensions. These centers, in conjunction with their proper regularized lowest Virasoro eigenmodes, yield the Bekenstein–Hawking black hole entropy via the statistical Cardy formula. We also analyze quantum holomorphic fluxes of the dual conformal field theories (CFTs) in the near horizon, giving rise to finite Hawking temperatures weighted by the central charges of the respective black hole spacetimes. We conclude with a discussion and outlook for future work.
