Boosts , Schwarzschild Black Holes and Absorption cross-sections in M theory


D dimensional neutral black strings wrapped on a circle are related to (D−1) dimensional charged black holes by boosts. We show that the boost has to be performed in the covering space and the boosted coordinate has to be compactified on a circle with a Lorentz contracted radius. Using this fact we show that the transition between Schwarzschild holes to… (More)
