The geodesics of the rotating extreme black hole in five spacetime dimensions found by Breckenridge, Myers, Peet and Vafa are Liouville integrable and may be integrated by additively separating the Hamilton-Jacobi equation. This allows us to obtain the Stackel-Killing tensor. We use these facts to give the maximal analytic extension of the spacetime and discuss some aspects of its causal structure. In particular, we exhibit a `repulson'-like behaviour occurring when there are naked closed…

Integrability in conformally coupled gravity: Taub-NUT spacetimes and rotating black holes

We consider four dimensional stationary and axially symmetric spacetimes for conformally coupled scalar-tensor theories. We show that, in analogy to the Lewis-Papapetrou problem in General Relativity

Causality violation and naked time machines in AdS5

We study supersymmetric charged rotating black holes in AdS5, and show that closed timelike curves occur outside the event horizon. Also upon lifting to rotating D3 brane solutions of type-IIB

Black holes in N = 2 supergravity

The most general black hole solution of Einstein–Maxwell theory has been discovered by Plebanski and Demianski in 1976.This thesis provides several steps towards generalizing this solution by

Rotating black branes in the presence of nonlinear electromagnetic field

In this paper, we consider a class of gravity whose action represents itself as a sum of the usual Einstein–Hilbert action with cosmological constant and an U(1) gauge field for which the action is

Degenerate black rings in D = 5 minimal supergravity

We consider both gauged and ungauged minimal supergravities in five dimensions and analyse the charged rotating solutions with two equal angular momenta J. When the electric charge Q ∼ J2/3 with some

Rotating black holes in a Gödel universe

We construct a five-dimensional, asymptotically Godel, three-charge black hole via dimensional reduction of an asymptotically plane wave, rotating D1-D5-brane solution of type-IIB supergravity. This

BPS Kerr-AdS time machines

It was recently observed that Kerr-AdS metrics with negative mass can describe smooth spacetimes that have a region within which naked closed time-like curves can arise, bounded by a velocity of

Fundamental string theory has been used to show that low-energy excitations of certain black holes are described by a two-dimensional conformal field theory. This picture has been found to be

Five-dimensional stringy rotating black holes are embedded into N=2 supergravity interacting with one vector multiplet. The existence of an unbroken supersymmetry of the rotating solution is proved

We discuss some general features of black holes of five-dimensional supergravity, such as the first law of black hole mechanics. We also discuss some special features of rotating supersymmetric black

The theory of the causal structure of a general space-time is developed, and is used to study black holes and to prove a number of theorems establishing the inevitability of singualarities under certain conditions.

The results strongly support the chronology protection conjecture: the laws of physics do not allow the appearance of closed timelike curves, even if violations of the weak energy condition are allowed by quantum theory.

Lorentzian universes from nothing

Lorentzian universes from nothing, are spacetimes with a single spacelike boundary that nevertheless have smooth Lorentzian metrics. They are the Lorentzian counterpart of spacetimes with no past
