Black holes in higher dimensional space-times
Black hole solutions to Einstein's equations are examined in asymptotically flat N + 1 dimensional space-times. First generalizations of Schwarzschild and Reissner-Nordstrom solutions are examined inExpand

The first law of thermodynamics for Kerr–anti-de Sitter black holes
We obtain expressions for the mass and angular momenta of rotating black holes in anti-de Sitter backgrounds in four, five and higher dimensions. We verify explicitly that our expressions satisfy theExpand

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

Superrotation charge and supertranslation hair on black holes
A bstractIt is shown that black hole spacetimes in classical Einstein gravity are characterized by, in addition to their ADM mass M, momentum P→$$ \overrightarrow{P} $$, angular momentum J→$$Expand

Interacting chiral gauge fields in six dimensions and Born-Infeld theory
Abstract Dimensional reduction of a self-dual tensor gauge field in 6D gives an Abelian vector gauge field in 5D. We derive the conditions under which an interacting 5D theory of an Abelian vectorExpand

Instantons and seven-branes in type IIB superstring theory
Abstract Instanton and seven-brane solutions of type IIB supergravity carrying charges in the Ramond-Ramond sector are constructed. The singular seven-brane has a quantized R ⊗ R ‘magnetic’ chargeExpand

Instability of flat space at finite temperature
The instabilities of quantum gravity are investigated using the path-integral formulation of Einstein's theory. A brief review is given of the classical gravitational instabilities, as well as theExpand

Magnetic Monopoles in Kaluza-Klein Theories
Abstract We demonstrate that the five-dimensional Kaluza-Klein theory of unified gravity and electromagnetism admits soliton solutions. These are regular, static and stable solutions of the fieldExpand

Duality invariant actions and generalised geometry
A bstractWe construct the non-linear realisation of the semi-direct product of E11 and its first fundamental representation at lowest order and appropriate to spacetime dimensions four to seven. ThisExpand

Generalized geometry and M theory
We reformulate the Hamiltonian form of bosonic eleven dimensional supergravity in terms of an object that unifies the three-form and the metric. For the case of four spatial dimensions, the dualityExpand
