ABSTRACT We construct a solution of the classical equations of motion arising in the low energy effective field theory for heterotic string theory. This solution describes a black hole in four dimensions carrying mass $M$, charge $Q$ and angular momentum $J$. The extremal limit of the solution is discussed. Comment: 9 pages

    ABSTRACT: The holographic principle has become an extraordinary tool in theoretical physics, most notably in the form of the Anti-deSitter Conformal Field Theory (AdS/CFT) correspondence, in which classical gravitational degrees of freedom in N -dimensions are related quantum field theory degrees of freedom in N � 1 dimen- sions in the limit of a large number of fields. Here we present an account of the AdS/CFT correspondence, also known as the gauge/gravity duality, from its origins in the large N ’tHooft expansion, up to Maldacena’s proposal that type IIB string theory in the presence of D-branes at low energy is dual to an N = 4, d = 4, U(N) super Yang-Mills on AdS5 ⇥ S5 . We begin with an extensive review of (super)string theory including D-branes. We then present the general formulation of the AdS/CFT in the supergravity background of AdS5 ⇥ S5 , along with several examples of how it is used in terms of the identification of bulk fields with operators on the bound- ary of a CFT. We move on to discuss two applications of the gauge/gravity duality. The first is the application of the holographic gauge/gravity correspondence to the QCD k-string. The second applies the AdS/CFT formalism to a Kerr black hole solution embedded in 10-dimensional heterotic sting theory. These two applications of the holographic gauge/gravity duality comprise the original work presented here. We follow with summaries and discussions of the background material, the original work, and future investigations.

    ABSTRACT: This article reviews the role of hidden symmetries of dynamics in the study of physical systems, from the basic concepts of symmetries in phase space to the forefront of current research. Such symmetries emerge naturally in the description of physical systems as varied as non-relativistic, relativistic, with or without gravity, classical or quantum, and are related to the existence of conserved quantities of the dynamics and integrability. In recent years their study has grown intensively, due to the discovery of non-trivial examples that apply to different types of theories and different numbers of dimensions. Applications encompass the study of integrable systems such as spinning tops, the Calogero model, systems described by the Lax equation, the physics of higher dimensional black holes, the Dirac equation, supergravity with and without fluxes, providing a tool to probe the dynamics of non-linear systems.

    ABSTRACT: The Demia\'nski-Janis-Newman algorithm is an original solution generating technique. For a long time it has been limited to producing rotating solutions, restricting to the case of a metric and real scalar fields, despite the fact that Demia\'nski extended it to include more parameters such as a NUT charge. Recently two independent prescriptions have been given for extending the algorithm to gauge fields and thus electrically charged configurations. In this paper we aim to end setting up the algorithm by providing a missing but important piece, which is how the transformation is applied to complex scalar fields. We illustrate our proposal through several examples taken from N=2 supergravity, including the stationary BPS solutions from Behrndt et al. and Sen's axion-dilaton rotating black hole. Moreover we discuss solutions that include pairs of complex parameters, such as the mass and the NUT charge, or the electric and magnetic charges, and we explain how to perform the algorithm in this context (with the example of Kerr-Newman-Taub-NUT and dyonic Kerr-Newman black holes). The final formulation of the DJN algorithm can possibly handle solutions with five of the six Pleba\'nski-Demia\'nski parameters along with any type of bosonic fields with spin less than two (exemplified with the SWIP solutions). This provides all the necessary tools for applications to general matter-coupled gravity and to (gauged) supergravity.
