Kaluza-Klein black holes in String Theory

Finn Larsen, (Chicago)


Non-supersymmetric black holes carrying both electric and magnetic charge with respect to a single Kaluza-Klein gauge field have much in common with supersymmetric black holes. Angular momentum conservation and other general physics principles underlies some of their basic features. Kaluza-Klein black holes are interpreted in string theory as bound states of D6-branes and D0-branes. The microscopic theory reproduces the full nonlinear mass formula of the extremal black holes.
