Using the attractor mechanism and the relation between the quanti- zation of H 3 (M) and topological strings on a Calabi Yau threefold M we define a map from BPS black holes into coherent states. This map allows us to represent the Bekenstein-Hawking-Wald entropy as a quantum distribution function on the phase space H 3 (M). This distribution function is a mixed Husimi/anti-Husimi dis- tribution corresponding to the different normal ordering prescriptions for the string coupling and deviations… 

Attractor black holes and quantum distribution functions

Using the attractor mechanism and the wavefunction interpretation of the topological string partition function on a Calabi Yau threefold M we study the relation between the Bekenstein‐Hawking‐Wald

Kähler quantization of H*(T2,R) and modular forms

Kahler quantization of H1(T2,R) is studied. It is shown that this theory corresponds to a fermionic σ model targeting a noncommutative space. By solving the complex-structure moduli independence

Geometric transition as a change of polarization

Taking the results of hep-th/0702110 we study the Dijkgraaf-Vafa open/closed topological string duality by considering the wavefunction behavior of the partition function. We find that the geometric

A classical upper bound for quantum entropy is identified and illustrated, 0 ⩽ Sq ⩽ ln(eσ2/2ℏ), involving the variance σ2 in phase space of the classical limit distribution of a given system. A



Kodaira-Spencer theory of gravity and exact results for quantum string amplitudes

We develop techniques to compute higher loop string amplitudes for twistedN=2 theories withĉ=3 (i.e. the critical case). An important ingredient is the discovery of an anomaly at every genus in

Hartle–Hawking Wave-Function for Flux Compactifications: the Entropic Principle

We argue that the topological string partition function, which has been known to correspond to a wave-function, can be interpreted as an exact “wave-function of the universe” in the mini-superspace

Attractors and the Holomorphic Anomaly

Motivated by the recently proposed connection between N=2 BPS black holes and topological strings, I study the attractor equations and their interplay with the holomorphic anomaly equation. The

Topological Strings and (Almost) Modular Forms

The B-model topological string theory on a Calabi-Yau threefold X has a symmetry group Γ, generated by monodromies of the periods of X. This acts on the topological string wave function in a natural

Two Dimensional Yang-Mills, Black Holes and Topological Strings

We show that topological strings on a class of non-compact Calabi-Yau threefolds is equivalent to two dimensional bosonic U(N) Yang-Mills on a torus. We explain this correspondence using the recent

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 II

Black hole partition functions and duality

The macroscopic entropy and the attractor equations for BPS black holes in four-dimensional N = 2 supergravity theories follow from a variational principle for a certain `entropy function'. We

From AdS3/CFT2 to Black Holes/Topological Strings

The elliptic genus Z_{BH} of a large class of 4D black holes can be expressed as an M-theory partition function on an AdS_3xS^2xCY_3 attractor. We approximate this partition function by summing over

The Hitchin Functionals and the Topological B-Model at One Loop

The quantization in quadratic order of the Hitchin functional, which defines by critical points a Calabi–Yau structure on a six-dimensional manifold, is performed. The conjectured relation between
