Mirror symmetry is T duality
Abstract It is argued that every Calabi-Yau manifold X with a mirror Y admits a family of supersymmetric toroidal 3-cycles. Moreover the moduli space of such cycles together with their flatExpand

Black strings and p-branes
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 stringExpand

Kerr/CFT Correspondence
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 boundaryExpand

Black hole entropy from near-horizon microstates
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 aExpand

AdS3 black holes and a stringy exclusion principle
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 invariantExpand

Black hole attractors and the topological string
A simple relationship of the form ZBH = |Ztop|2 is conjectured, where ZBH is a supersymmetric partition function for a four-dimensional BPS black hole in a Calabi-Yau compactification of Type IIExpand

The dS/CFT correspondence
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 withExpand

Open p-branes
Abstract It is shown that many of the p -branes of type II string theory and d = 11 supergravity can have boundaries on other p -branes. The rules for when this can and cannot occur are derived fromExpand

On BMS invariance of gravitational scattering
A bstractBMS+ transformations act nontrivially on outgoing gravitational scattering data while preserving intrinsic structure at future null infinity (ℐ$$ \mathrm{\mathcal{I}} $$+). BMS−Expand

Soft Hair on Black Holes.
It has recently been shown that Bondi-van der Burg-Metzner-Sachs supertranslation symmetries imply an infinite number of conservation laws for all gravitational theories in asymptotically MinkowskianExpand
