Informal HEP Journal club: Higher dimensional gravity, bubbles, and new puzzles for AdS/CFT
21 October 2010 13:00 in CM219
In more than four dimensions, it is now well known that there are multiple types of black holes. I'll review the fact there are also regular horizon-free geometries ruled out in four dimensions that may be described as non-Kaluza Klein bubbles of nothing. These topologically nontrivial solutions that present new puzzles for the AdS/CFT correspondence, in particular the fact that one may write down regular (horizon-free) solitons that violate the BPS bound.
