Composite Black Holes in String Theory *

  • Published 1996
We discuss properties of special supersymmetric extreme black holes in 4 and 5 dimensions which have regular horizons, non-zero entropy and can be interpreted as compactifications of BPS bound states of p-branes in 10 or 11 dimensions. Recently, black holes in string theory have become a subject of intensive research. It was realised that microscopic… CONTINUE READING
