Abstract: We formulate new boundary conditions that prove well defined variational principle and finite response functions for conformal gravity (CG). In the AdS/CFT framework, gravity theory that is considered in the bulk gives information about the corresponding boundary theory. The metric is split in the holographic coordinate, used to approach the boundary, and the metric at the boundary. One can consider the quantities in the bulk perturbing the (one dimension lower) boundary metric in holographic coordinate. The response functions to fluctuations of the boundary metric are Brown-York stress energy tensor sourced by the leading term in the expansion of the boundary metric and a Partially Massless Response (PMR), specific for CG and sourced by the subleading term in the expansion of the boundary metric. They formulate boundary charges that define the asymptotic symmetry algebra (ASA) or Lie algebra of the diffeomorphisms that preserve the boundary conditions of the theory. We further analyse CG via canonical analysis constructing the gauge generators of the canonical charges that agree with Noether charges, while the charge associated to Weyl transformations, vanishes. ASA is determined by the leading term in the expansion of the boundary metric and for the asymptotically Minkowski, R × S 2 and the boundaries related by conformal rescaling, defines conformal algebra (CA). The key role is played by the subleading term in the expansion of the metric for- bidden by Einstein gravity EOM, however allowed in CG. We classify the subalgebras of CA restricted by this term and use them to deduce the global solutions of CG. The largest subalgebra is five dimensional and extrapolates to plane wave (or geon) global solution of CG. Further, we compute the one loop partition function of CG in four and six di- mensions and supplement the theoretical computations with the computation of thermodynamical quantities and observables, black holes and Mannheim-Kazanas-Riegert solution which is the most general spherically symmetric solution of conformal gravity analogous to Schwarzschild solution of Einstein gravity.
