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 variables. In the D1-D5 CFT, typical three-charge states reside in high-degree twisted sectors, and their momentum charge is carried by modes that individually have fractional momentum. Understanding this momentum fractionation holographically is crucial for understanding typical black-hole microstates in… 
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
AdS2 holography: mind the cap
A bstractAdS2 plays an extremely important role in black-hole physics. We construct several infinite families of supergravity solutions that are asymptotically AdS2 in the UV, and terminate in the IR
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
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
AdS3 holography at dimension two
Abstract Holography can provide a microscopic interpretation of a gravitational solution as corresponding to a particular CFT state: the asymptotic expansion in gravity encodes the expectation
Non-Abelian supertubes
A bstractA supertube is a supersymmetric configuration in string theory which occurs when a pair of branes spontaneously polarizes and generates a new dipole charge extended along a closed curve. The

Correlation functions in the D1-D5 orbifold CFT
A bstractThe D1-D5 system has an orbifold point in its moduli space, at which it may be described by an N$$ \mathcal{N} $$ = (4,4) supersymmetric sigma model with target space MN/S(N) where M is T4$$
Counting superstrata
Abstract We count the number of regular supersymmetric solutions in supergravity, called superstrata, that represent non-linear completion of linear fluctuations around empty AdS3 ×S 3. These
M-theory superstrata and the MSW string
A bstractThe low-energy description of wrapped M5 branes in compactifications of M-theory on a Calabi-Yau threefold times a circle is given by a conformal field theory studied by Maldacena,


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,

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
Oscillating supertubes and neutral rotating black hole microstates
A bstractThe construction of neutral black hole microstates is an important problem, with implications for the information paradox. In this paper we conjecture a construction of non-supersymmetric
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

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
