Black Hole-String Correspondence

  title={Black Hole-String Correspondence},
  author={Leonard Susskind},
I was asked to give a brief review of the black hole-string correspondence [1] as a warm-up for a longer SITP-group discussion of a recent paper by Chen, Maldacena, and Witten [2]. Here are my notes in written form. ar X iv :2 11 0. 12 61 7v 2 [ he pth ] 2 6 O ct 2 02 1

Correspondence principle for black holes and strings
For most black holes in string theory, the Schwarzschild radius in string units decreases as the string coupling is reduced. We formulate a correspondence principle, which states that (i) when the
Counting Schwarzschild and charged black holes
We review the arguments that fundamental string states are in one to one correspondence with black hole states. We demonstrate the power of the assumption by showing that it implies that the
Some speculations about black hole entropy in string theory
The classical Bekenstein entropy of a black hole is argued to arise from configurations of strings with ends which are frozen on the horizon. Quantum corrections to this entropy are probably finite

On the black hole/string transition
We discuss aspects of the possible transition between small black holes and highly excited fundamental strings. We focus on the connection between black holes and the self gravitating string solution
