Wavy Strings : Black or Bright ?

  title={Wavy Strings : Black or Bright ?},
  author={Nemanja Kaloper and Robert C. Myers and Harold Roussel},
Recent developments in string theory have brought forth a considerable interest in time-dependent hair on extended objects. This novel new hair is typically characterized by a wave profile along the horizon and angular momentum quantum numbers l,m in the transverse space. In this work, we present an extensive treatment of such oscillating black objects, focusing on their geometric properties. We first give a theorem of purely geometric nature, stating that such wavy hair cannot be detected by… CONTINUE READING
