In quantum gravity, the Hawking-Page phase transition Hawking-Page (1983) showed that although AdS black holes can be in stable thermal equilibrium with radiation, they are not the preferred state below a certain critical temperature . At this temperature there will be a first order phase transition where below thermal AdS will become the dominant contribution to the partition function.
