Attempts to solve Yang-Mills theory must eventually face the problem of analyzing the theory at intermediate values of the coupling constant. In this regime neither perturbation theory nor theâ€¦ (More)

We examine the M-theory version of SQCD which is known as MQCD. In the IIA limit, this theory appears to have a supersymmetry-breaking brane configuration which corresponds to the meta-stable stateâ€¦ (More)

We construct all eleven-dimensional, three-charge BPS solutions that preserve a fixed, standard set of supersymmetries. Our solutions include all BPS three-charge rotating black holes, black rings,â€¦ (More)

We discuss some aspects of the recently discovered BPS black ring solutions in terms of the AdS/CFT correspondence. In the type IIB frame in which the black ring carries the charges of the D1-D5-Pâ€¦ (More)

We construct smooth BPS three-charge geometries that resolve the zero-entropy singularity of the U(1)Ã—U(1) invariant black ring. This singularity is resolved by a geometric transition that results inâ€¦ (More)

We construct the most generic three-charge, three-dipole-charge, BPS black-ring solutions in a Taub-NUT background. These solutions depend on seven charges and six moduli, and interpolate between aâ€¦ (More)

We construct finite size, supersymmetric, tubular D-brane configurations with three charges, two angular momenta and several brane dipole moments. In type IIA string theory these are tubularâ€¦ (More)

We use mergers of microstates to obtain the first smooth horizonless microstate solutions corresponding to a BPS three-charge black hole with a classically large horizon area. These microstates haveâ€¦ (More)

We find supergravity solutions corresponding to all U (1) Ã— U (1) invariant chiral primaries of the D1-D5-KK system. These solutions are 1/8 BPS, carry angular momentum, and are asymptotically flatâ€¦ (More)

In this note we present several ideas toward the solution to the giant graviton puzzle â€“ the apparent multiplicity of supergravity states dual to field theory chiral primary operators. We use theâ€¦ (More)
