We study the hypermultiplet moduli space of an N=4, U(Q1)×U(Q5) gauge theory in 1+1 dimensions to extract the effective SCFT description of near extremal 5-dimensional black holes modelled by a collection of D1and D5-branes. On the moduli space, excitations with fractional momenta arise due to a residual discrete gauge invariance. It is argued that, in the… (More)
