A bstractWe construct the first example of a superstratum: a class of smooth horizonless supergravity solutions that are parameterized by arbitrary continuous functions of (at least) two variables and have the same charges as the supersymmetric D1-D5-P black hole. We work in Type IIB string theory on T4 or K3 and our solutions involve a subset of fields that can be described by a six-dimensional supergravity with two tensor multiplets. The solutions can thus be constructed using a linear… 
Superstratum symbiosis
Abstract Superstrata are smooth horizonless microstate geometries for the supersymmetric D1-D5-P black hole in type IIB supergravity. In the CFT, “superstratum states” are defined to be the
New superstrata from three-dimensional supergravity
Abstract We find a two-parameter family of generalized superstrata that emerge as smooth, supersymmetric solutions in three-dimensional gauged supergravity coupled to additional scalar fields. This
Integrability and blackhole microstate geometries
We examine some recently-constructed families of asymptotically-AdS3 × S3 supergravity solutions that have the same charges and mass as supersymmetric D1-D5P black holes, but that cap off smoothly
Supercharged AdS3 Holography
Abstract Given an asymptotically Anti-de Sitter supergravity solution, one can obtain a microscopic interpretation by identifying the corresponding state in the holographically dual conformal field
Holographic description of non-supersymmetric orbifolded D1-D5-P solutions
A bstractNon-supersymmetric black hole microstates are of great interest in the context of the black hole information paradox. We identify the holographic description of the general class of
Black hole microstates from the worldsheet
Abstract Recently an exact worldsheet description of strings propagating in certain black hole microstate geometries was constructed in terms of null-gauged WZW models. In this paper we consider a

Microstate geometries from gauged supergravity in three dimensions
The most detailed constructions of microstate geometries, and particularly of superstrata, are done using $\mathcal{N} = (1,0)$ supergravity coupled to two anti-self-dual tensor multiplets in six
Momentum fractionation on superstrata
A bstractSuperstrata are bound states in string theory that carry D1, D5, and momentum charges, and whose supergravity descriptions are parameterized by arbitrary functions of (at least) two
We give a survey of the present status of the microstate geometries called superstrata. Superstrata are smooth, horizonless solutions of six-dimensional supergravity that represent some of the


Black-hole entropy from supergravity superstrata states
A bstractThere are, by now, several arguments that superstrata, which represent D1-D5-P bound states that depend upon arbitrary functions of two variables and that preserve four supersymmetries,
Supersymmetric solutions in six dimensions: a linear structure
A bstractThe equations underlying all supersymmetric solutions of six-dimensional minimal ungauged supergravity coupled to an anti-self-dual tensor multiplet have been known for quite a while, and
Superdescendants of the D1D5 CFT and their dual 3-charge geometries
A bstractWe describe how to obtain the gravity duals of semiclassical states in the D1-D5 CFT that are superdescendants of a class of RR ground states. On the gravity side, the configurations we
Global structure of five-dimensional fuzzballs
We describe and study families of BPS microstate geometries, namely, smooth, horizonless asymptotically flat solutions to supergravity. We examine these solutions from the perspective of earlier
Holographic anatomy of fuzzballs
We present a comprehensive analysis of 2-charge fuzzball solutions, that is, horizon-free non-singular solutions of IIB supergravity characterized by a curve on R4. We propose a precise map that

Moulting Black Holes
A bstractWe find a family of novel supersymmetric phases of the D1-D5 CFT, which in certain ranges of charges have more entropy than all known ensembles. We also find bulk BPS configurations that
Adding new hair to the 3-charge black ring
Motivated by the string theory analysis of Giusto et al (2011 JHEP1111(2011)062), we construct a class of 1/8-BPS solutions of type-IIB supergravity compactified on S1 × T4. In this duality frame,
Erratum: Supersymmetric solutions of minimal gauged supergravity in five dimensions [Phys. Rev. D 68, 105009 (2003)]
All purely bosonic supersymmetric solutions of minimal gauged supergravity in five dimensions are classified. The solutions fall into two classes depending on whether the Killing vector constructed
Fuzzballs with internal excitations
We construct general 2-charge D1-D5 horizon-free non-singular solutions of IIB supergravity on T4 and K3 describing fuzzballs with excitations in the internal manifold; these excitations are
