Stable Black Strings in Anti-de Sitter Space

  title={Stable Black Strings in Anti-de Sitter Space},
  author={Takayuki Hirayama and Gungwon Kang},
In the five-dimensional Einstein gravity with negative cosmological constant in the presence/absence of a non-fine-tuned 3-brane, we have investigated the classical stability of black string solutions which are foliations of four-dimensional AdS/dS-Schwarzschild black holes. Such black strings are generically unstable as in the well-known Gregory-Laflamme instability. For AdS black strings, however, it turns out that they become stable if the longitudinal size of horizon is larger than the… CONTINUE READING
