ABSTRACT We investigate velocity frame dragging with the boosted Schwarzschild black string solution and the boosted Kaluza–Klein bubble solution, in which a translational symmetry along the boosted z-coordinate is implemented. The velocity frame dragging effect can be nullified by the motion of an observer using the boost symmetry along the z-coordinate if it is not compact. However, in spacetime with the compact z-coordinate, we show that the effect cannot be removed since the compactification breaks the global Lorentz boost symmetry. As a result, the comoving velocity depends on r and the momentum parameter along the z-coordinate becomes an observer independent characteristic quantity of the black string and bubble solutions. The dragging induces a spherical ergo-region around the black string.

    ABSTRACT: We study the formation of superradiant bound states for massive scalar fields in five-dimensional rotating black string geometries with a non-vanishing Kaluza-Klein momentum along the compact direction. Even though all Kaluza-Klein modes may form bound states in this geometry, in realistic extra-dimensional models and astrophysical black holes only the zero-mode is sufficiently light for superradiant instabilities to develop, provided the field has a small but non-vanishing mass, as for example for axion-like particles. We use analytical and numerical methods to show that, although the Kaluza-Klein momentum decreases the upper bound on the field mass for an instability to develop, it may enhance its maximum growth rate by more than 50%, thus boosting the black hole bomb mechanism. We discuss the possible observational consequences of this result and its potential as an astrophysical probe of non-trivial extra-dimensional compactifications.

    ABSTRACT: The geodesic properties of the extraordinary vacuum string solution in (4+1) dimensions are analyzed by using Hamilton-Jacobi method. The geodesic motions show distinct properties from those of the static one. Especially, any freely falling particle can not arrive at the horizon or singularity. There exist stable null circular orbits and bouncing timelike and null geodesics. To get into the horizon {or singularity}, a particle need to follow a non-geodesic trajectory. We also analyze the orbit precession to show that the precession angle has distinct features for each geometry such as naked singularity, black string, and wormhole.

    ABSTRACT: We investigate the geodesic motions of a massive particle and light ray in the hyperplane orthogonal to the symmetry axis in the 5-dimensional hypercylindrical spacetime. The class of the solutions depends on one constant a which is the ratio of string mass density and tension. There exist unstable orbits in null geodesic only in some range of a. The innermost stable circular orbits in timelike geodesic also exist only in a certain range of the parameter a. The capture cross section and the deflection angle of light ray are also computed.
