Microstate Geometries - what do they tell us about Black Holes?

Bena, I (Institut de Physique Theorique, CEA Saclay)
Monday 28 May 2012, 11:30-12:15



Black hole microstate geometries exist in the same regime of parameters as a large classical black hole, but have no horizon. One can construct incredibly-large families of such geometries, and argue that they have the right properties to describe some of the typical microstates of the black hole. I will review the construction and properties of microstate solutions for supersymmetric, extremal non-supersymmetric and nonextremal black holes, and discuss what they teach us about black hole physics.
