Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: 'Supersymmetric AdS(5) black holes'

Presented by James Lucietti, Durham U.

6 October 2006 00:00 in CM221

The study of supersymmetric AdS(5) black holes is well motivated by the AdS/CFT correspondence as this should allow one to calculate their entropies from the weakly coupled dual CFT. After briefly reviewing aspects of higher dimensional black holes, I will describe the recent construction of the most general known supersymmetric AdS(5) black hole (hep-th/0601156). I will also discuss the status of the CFT calculation of the black hole entropy and the possible existence of more general black holes in AdS.
