We derive the low energy absorption cross section of minimal scalars for a very generic class of geometries, that includes, among others, black holes, strings, p-branes, as well as intersecting brane configurations. The scalar field can be absorbed across a regular surface (a horizon) of finite area, or across a zero area throat, which may be singular or regular. Then we focus on some particular cases and compare with the results obtained using microscopic models at weak coupling. Exact… CONTINUE READING
