Microscopic origin of the Bekenstein-Hawking entropy

- A. Strominger, C. Vafa
- Physics
- 9 January 1996

Abstract The Bekenstein-Hawking area-entropy relation S BH = A 4 is derived for a class of five-dimensional extremal black holes in string theory by counting the degeneracy of BPS solition bound… Expand

Superstrings with Torsion

- A. Strominger
- Physics
- 8 June 1986

Abstract The conditions for spacetime supersymmetry of the heterotic superstring in backgrounds with arbitrary metric, torsion, Yang-Mills and dilaton expectation values are determined using the… Expand

Black hole entropy in M theory

- J. Maldacena, A. Strominger, E. Witten
- Physics
- 7 November 1997

Extremal black holes in M-theory compactification on M × S1 are microscopically represented by fivebranes wrapping P × S1, where M is a Calabi-Yau threefold and P is a four-cycle in M. Additional… Expand

Black strings and p-branes

- G. Horowitz, A. Strominger
- Physics
- 19 March 1991

It is shown that low-energy string theory admits a variety of solutions with the structure of an extended object surrounded by an event horizon. In particular there is a family of black string… Expand

Kerr/CFT Correspondence

- Monica M. Guica, Thomas Hartman, Wei Song, A. Strominger
- Physics, Mathematics
- 25 September 2008

Quantum gravity in the region very near the horizon of an extreme Kerr black hole (whose angular momentum and mass are related by J=GM{sup 2}) is considered. It is shown that consistent boundary… Expand

Chiral gravity in three dimensions

- W. Li, Wei Song, A. Strominger
- Physics
- 30 January 2008

Three dimensional Einstein gravity with negative cosmological constant ?1/?2 deformed by a gravitational Chern-Simons action with coefficient 1/? is studied in an asymptotically AdS3 spacetime. It is… Expand

Black hole entropy from near-horizon microstates

- A. Strominger
- Physics
- 30 December 1997

Black holes whose near-horizon geometries are locally, but not necessarily globally, AdS3 (three-dimensional anti-de Sitter space) are considered. Using the fact that quantum gravity on AdS3 is a… Expand

Vacuum configurations for superstrings

- P. Candelas, G. Horowitz, A. Strominger, E. Witten
- Physics
- 1985

We study candidate vacuum configurations in ten-dimensional O(32) and E 8 × E 8 supergravity and superstring theory that have unbroken N = 1 supersymmetry in four dimensions. This condition permits… Expand

The dS/CFT correspondence

- A. Strominger
- Physics
- 14 June 2001

A holographic duality is proposed relating quantum gravity on dSD (D-dimensional de Sitter space) to conformal field theory on a single SD−1 ((D-1)-sphere), in which bulk de Sitter correlators with… Expand

AdS3 black holes and a stringy exclusion principle

- J. Maldacena, A. Strominger
- Physics
- 12 April 1998

The duality relating near-horizon microstates of black holes obtained as orbifolds of a subset of AdS3 to the states of a conformal field theory is analyzed in detail. The SL(2,R)L?SL(2,R)R invariant… Expand
