We present solutions of the Nambu-Goto equation for test strings in a shape of toroidal spiral in five-dimensional spacetimes. In particular, we show that stationary toroidal spirals exist around the five-dimensional Myers-Perry black holes. We also show the existence of innermost stationary toroidal spirals around the five-dimensional black holes like geodesic particles orbiting around four-dimensional black holes.

Toroidal Spiral Strings in Higher-dimensional Spacetime

We report on our progress in research of separability of the Nambu-Goto equation for test strings with a symmetric configuration in a shape of toroidal spiral in a five-dimensional Kerr-AdS black

Instability of stationary closed strings winding around flat torus in five-dimensional Schwarzschild spacetimes

Linear perturbations for one parameter family of stationary, closed Nambu-Goto strings winding around a flat torus in the five-dimensional Schwarzschild spacetime have been studied. It has been shown

Stationary Closed Strings in Five-dimensional Flat Spacetime

We investigate stationary rotating closed Nambu-Goto strings in five-dimensional flat spacetime. The stationary string is defined as a worldsheet that is tangent to a timelike Killing vector.

Rotating elastic string loops in flat and black hole spacetimes: stability, cosmic censorship and the Penrose process

We rederive the equations of motion for relativistic strings, that is, one-dimensional elastic bodies whose internal energy depends only on their stretching, and use them to study circular string

Hidden symmetries and supergravity solutions

The role of Killing and Killing-Yano tensors for studying the geodesic motion of the particle and the superparticle in a curved background is reviewed. Additionally, the Papadopoulos list [G.

Killing-Yano tensors and some applications

The role of Killing and Killing-Yano tensors for studying the geodesic motion of the particle and the superparticle in a curved background is reviewed. Additionally the Papadopoulos list [74] for

Cohomogeneity-one-string integrability of spacetimes

A classical string whose world sheet shares a one-dimensional symmetry with the spacetime is called cohomogeneity-one (C1). We propose C1-string integrability, i.e. integrability of all C1 strings in

Note on orbit space of G membranes

The motion of test membranes on which the group $G$ of isometries of a spacetime $M$ acts has been considered in general settings. It has been shown that the configuration of Nambu-Goto membranes is

Dynamics of toroidal spiral strings around five-dimensional black holes

We examine the separability of the Nambu-Goto equation for test strings in a shape of toroidal spiral in a five-dimensional Kerr-AdS black hole. In particular, for a "Hopf loop" string which is a

Kaluza-Klein Black Holes with Squashed Horizons

We study geometrical structures of charged static black holes in the five-dimensional Einstein-Maxwell theory. The black holes we study have horizons in the form of squashed S 3 , and their

Black Holes in Higher Dimensions

This work discusses black-hole solutions of maximal supergravity theories, including black holes in anti-de Sitter space, and reviews Myers-Perry solutions, black rings, and solution-generating techniques.

Rigidly Rotating Strings in Stationary Axisymmetric Spacetimes

In this paper we study the motion of a rigidly rotating Nambu - Goto test string in a stationary axisymmetric background spacetime. As special examples we consider rigid rotation of strings in a flat

We study a massless scalar field propagating in the background of a five-dimensional rotating black hole. We show that in the Myers-Perry metric describing such a black hole the massless field

We investigate the geodetic precession effect of a parallelly transported spin vector along a circular geodesic in five-dimensional squashed Kaluza-Klein black hole spacetime. Then we derive the
