Black Hole Giants

  title={Black Hole Giants},
  author={Julian Sonner},
We investigate giant and dual giant type BPS configurations in the nearhorizon geometry of a certain 1 16 -BPS AdS5 black hole. By quantising the space of solutions we count the dual giant configurations and compare with the black hole entropy. This suggests a missing degeneracy factor which we argue comes from an angular momentum quantum number. From the D-brane world volume this arises from BPS electromagnetic waves. We study these waves in the context of giants and dual giants in the black… CONTINUE READING
