Holographic Superconductors

- S. Hartnoll, C. Herzog, G. Horowitz
- Physics
- 9 October 2008

It has been shown that a gravitational dual to a superconductor can be obtained by coupling anti-de Sitter gravity to a Maxwell field and charged scalar. We review our earlier analysis of this theory… 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

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

Extreme Kerr throat geometry: A vacuum analog of AdS 2 × S 2

- J. Bardeen, G. Horowitz
- Physics
- 13 May 1999

We study the near-horizon limit of a four-dimensional extreme rotating black hole. The limiting metric is a completely nonsingular vacuum solution, with an enhanced symmetry group… Expand

The AdS / CFT correspondence and a new positive energy conjecture for general relativity

- G. Horowitz, R. Myers
- Physics
- 13 August 1998

We examine the AdS-CFT correspondence when gauge theory is considered on a compactified space with supersymmetry-breaking boundary conditions. We find that the corresponding supergravity solution has… Expand

Black Holes

- G. Horowitz, S. Teukolsky
- Physics
- 12 August 1998

Black holes are among the most intriguing objects in modern physics. Their influence ranges from powering quasars and other active galactic nuclei, to providing key insights into quantum gravity. We… Expand

Correspondence principle for black holes and strings

- G. Horowitz, J. Polchinski
- Physics
- 13 December 1996

For most black holes in string theory, the Schwarzschild radius in string units decreases as the string coupling is reduced. We formulate a correspondence principle, which states that (i) when the… Expand

The Gravitational Hamiltonian, action, entropy and surface terms

- S. Hawking, G. Horowitz
- Physics
- 13 January 1995

We give a derivation of the gravitational Hamiltonian starting from the Einstein - Hilbert action, keeping track of all surface terms. This derivation can be applied to any spacetime that… Expand

Quasinormal modes of AdS black holes and the approach to thermal equilibrium

- G. Horowitz, V. Hubeny
- Physics
- 9 September 1999

We investigate the decay of a scalar field outside a Schwarzschild anti de Sitter black hole. This is determined by computing the complex frequencies associated with quasinormal modes. There are… Expand
