Abstract The Bekenstein-Hawking entropy of near extremal fivebranes is calculated in terms of a gas of strings living on the fivebrane. These fivebranes can also be viewed as near extremal black holes in five dimensions. 
5D Black Holes and Matrix Strings
Abstract We derive the world-volume theory, the (non)-extremal entropy and background geometry of black holes and black strings constructed out of the NS IIA 5-brane within the framework of matrix
D Black Holes and Matrix Strings
We derive the world-volume theory, the (non)-extremal entropy and background geometry of black holes and black strings constructed out of the NS IIA fivebrane within the framework of matrix theory.
The long string at the stretched horizon and the entropy of large non-extremal black holes
A bstractWe discuss how long strings can arise at the stretched horizon and how they can account for the Bekenstein-Hawking entropy. We use the thermal scalar field theory to derive the asymptotic
On the entropy of matrix black holes
We compute the entropy of 5d black holes carrying up to three charges using matrix theory.
The Quantum Entropy in Horowitz-Strominger Black Hole Background
Using 't Hooft's brick wall model and Newman-Penrose's spinor analysis, the expression of the quantum entropy is derived in the Horowitz-Strominger black hole background. The calculations show us
The quantum structure of black holes
We give an elementary review of black holes in string theory. We discuss black hole entropy from string microstates and Hawking radiation from these states. We then review the structure of two-charge
Compactification of Tensionless String Theories
We study compactifications of the $N=2$ 6D tensionless string on various complex two-folds down to two-dimensions. In the IR limit they become non-trivial conformal field theories in 2D. Using
Matrix description of interacting theories in six-dimensions
We propose descriptions of interacting (2,0) supersymmetric theories without gravity in six dimensions in the infinite momentum frame. They are based on the large $N$ limit of quantum mechanics or


New Connections Between String Theories
We consider the R→0 limit of toroidal compactification in various string theories. This leads to new connections between seemingly different string theories: IIA and IIB, open and closed, oriented
D-brane Approach to Black Hole Quantum Mechanics
Abstract Strominger and Vafa have used D-brane technology to identify and precisely count the degenerate quantum states responsible for the entropy of certain extremal, BPS-saturated black holes.
Some of the extremal black hole solutions in string theory have the same quantum numbers as the Bogomol’nyi saturated elementary string states. We explore the possibility that these black holes can
Some twisted self-dual solutions for the Yang-Mills equations on a hypertorus
AbstractTheSU(N) Yang-Mills equations are considered in a four-dimensional Euclidean box with periodic boundary conditions (hypertorus). Gauge-invariant twists can be introduced in these boundary
Quantum Aspects of Black Holes
This review is based on lectures given at the 1992 Trieste Spring School on String Theory and Quantum Gravity and at the 1992 TASI Summer School in Boulder, Colorado.
