MONOPOLES AND BLACK HOLE ENTROPY

We consider the entropy of a black hole which has zero area horizon. The microstates appear as monopole solutions of the effective theory on the corresponding brane configurations. The resulting

Monopoles and Black Hole Entropy

We consider the entropy of a black hole which has zero area horizon. The microstates appear as monopole solutions of the effective theory on the corresponding brane configurations. The resulting

Black hole entropy in loop quantum gravity

We calculate the black-hole entropy in loop quantum gravity as a function of the horizon area and provide the exact formula for the leading and sub-leading terms. By comparison with the

Using the Matrix formulation of M-theory, the counting problem is mapped onto the original Gibbons-Hawking calculation of the thermodynamic entropy, which reveals the statistical entropy of black holes in M- theory.

It is shown that conventional fundamental string theory shares the features of Lorentz transformation properties of the size and shape of physical systems with momentum beyond the Planck scale.

Elliptic genera and quantum field theory

It is shown that in elliptic cohomology — as recently formulated in the mathematical literature — the supercharge of the supersymmetric nonlinear signa model plays a role similar to the role of the

LIMITATIONS ON THE STATISTICAL DESCRIPTION OF BLACK HOLES

We argue that the description of a block hole as a statistical (thermal) object must break down as the extreme (zero-temperature) limit is a approached, due to uncontrollable thermodynamic

Gedanken experiments involving black holes.

Analysis of several gedanken experiments indicates that black hole complementarity cannot be ruled out on the basis of known physical principles. Experiments designed by outside observers to disprove

Supersymmetry as a cosmic censor.

It is shown that extreme dilaton black holes, with electric and magnetic charges, admit supercovariantly constant spinors, and it is speculated on the possibility that an extreme black hole may "evaporate" by emitting smaller extreme black holes.

Statistical mechanical origin of the entropy of a rotating, charged black hole.

It is shown that the entropy of a rotating, charged black hole is, in senses made precise in the paper, (i) the logarithm of the number of quantum mechanically distinct ways that the hole could have

The entropy per unit area is shown to be finite to all orders in superstring perturbation theory, and the importance of these conclusions to the resolution of the problem of black hole information loss is reiterated.
