Higher-dimensional resolution of dilatonic black hole singularities

  title={Higher-dimensional resolution of dilatonic black hole singularities},
  author={Gary W. Gibbons and Gary T. Horowitz},
We show that the four-dimensional extreme dilaton black hole with dilaton coupling constant a = √ p/(p + 2) can be interpreted as a completely non-singular, non-dilatonic, black p-brane in (4 + p) dimensions provided that p is odd. Similar results are obtained for multi-black holes and dilatonic extended objects in higher spacetime dimensions. The non-singular black p-brane solutions include the self-dual three brane of ten-dimensional N=2B supergravity and a multi-fivebrane solution of eleven… CONTINUE READING
