Stability and the negative mode for Schwarzschild in a finite cavity

  title={Stability and the negative mode for Schwarzschild in a finite cavity},
  author={James P. Gregory and Simon Ross},
It has been proposed that translationally-invariant black branes are classically stable if and only if they are locally thermodynamically stable. Reall has outlined a general argument to demonstrate this, and studied in detail the case of charged black p-branes in type II supergravity [1]. We consider the application of his argument in the simplest non-trivial case, an uncharged asymptotically flat brane enclosed in a finite cylindrical cavity. In this simple context, it is possible to give a… CONTINUE READING
