Curvature corrections and topology change transition in brane-black hole systems: A perturbative approach

  title={Curvature corrections and topology change transition in brane-black hole systems: A perturbative approach},
  author={Viktor G. Czinner and Antonino Flachi},
  journal={Physical Review D},
We consider curvature corrections to static, axisymmetric Dirac-Nambu-Goto membranes embedded into a spherically symmetric black hole spacetime with arbitrary number of dimensions. Since the next to leading order corrections in the effective brane action are quadratic in the brane thickness $\ensuremath{\ell}$, we adopt a linear perturbation approach in ${\ensuremath{\ell}}^{2}$. The perturbations are general in the sense that they are not restricted to the Rindler zone nor to the near-critical…

Axisymmetric Dirac-Nambu-Goto branes on Myers-Perry black hole backgrounds

Stationary $D$-dimensional test branes interacting with $N$-dimensional Myers-Perry bulk black holes are investigated in arbitrary brane and bulk dimensions. The branes are asymptotically flat and

Static configurations and evolution of higher dimensional brane-dilaton black hole system

A bstractStatic configurations and a dynamical evolution of the system composed of a higher-dimensional spherically symmetric dilaton black hole and the Dirac-Goto-Nambu brane were investigated. The

Quantum near-horizon geometry of a black 0-brane

We investigate a bunch of D0-branes to reveal its quantum nature from the gravity side. In the classical limit, it is well described by a non-extremal black 0-brane in type IIA supergravity. The

Thick Dirac–Nambu–Goto Branes on Black Hole Backgrounds

Thickness corrections to static, axisymmetric Dirac–Nambu–Goto branes embedded into spherically symmetric black hole spacetimes with arbitrary number of dimensions are studied. First, by applying a

Dynamical meson melting in holography

A bstractWe discuss mesons in thermalizing gluon backgrounds in the $ \mathcal{N} $ = 2 super-symmetric QCD using the gravity dual. We numerically compute the dynamics of a probe D7-brane in the

A topologically flat thick 2-brane on higher dimensional black hole backgrounds

We present a numerical solution for a topologically flat 2-dimensional thick brane on a higher dimensional, spherically symmetric black hole background. Present solution is the last, missing part of

Dark matter cosmic string in the gravitational field of a black hole

We examined analytically and proposed a numerical model of an Abelian Higgs dark matter vortex in the spacetime of a stationary axisymmetric Kerr black hole. In analytical calculations the dark

In closed universes the constraint function of Einstein–Yang–Mills–Higgs systems that generates the time evolution (the so-called Hamiltonian constraint) turned out to be a simple Poisson bracket of

Energy-momentum balance in a particle domain wall perforating collision

We investigate the energy-momentum balance in the perforating collision of a point particle with an infinitely thin planar domain wall within the linearized gravity in arbitrary dimensions. Since the

Piercing of domain walls: new mechanism of gravitational radiation

A bstractDomain wall (DW) moving in media undergoes the friction force due to particle scattering. However certain particles are not scattered, but perforate the wall. As a result, the wall gets



Stability of branes trapped by d-dimensional black holes

The system of extended objects interacting with a black hole describes or mimics various gravitational phenomena. In this brief paper, we report the results of stability analysis of codimension-one
