Title: Arbitrary black-string deformations in the black-string-black-hole transitions

Abstract

We study the possible black-string black-hole transition by analyzing the structure of the apparent horizon for a large family of time-symmetric initial data. We observe that, as judged by the apparent horizon, it is possible to generate arbitrarily deformed black strings at a moment of time symmetry. A similar study for hyperspherical black holes reveals that although arbitrarily deformed hyperspherical black holes can be constructed, the proper distance between the north and south poles along the extra direction has an upper limit.

  • We study the classical dynamics of a bosonic string in the {ital D}-dimensional flat Friedmann-Robertson-Walker and Schwarzschild backgrounds. We make a perturbative development in the string coordinates around a {ital null} string configuration; the background geometry is taken into account exactly. In the cosmological case we uncouple and solve the first order fluctuations; the string time evolution with the conformal gauge world-sheet {tau} coordinate is given by {ital X}{sup 0}({sigma},{tau})={ital q}({sigma}){tau}{sup 1/(1+2{beta})}+{ital c}{sup 2}{ital B}{sup 0}({sigma},{tau})+..., {ital B}{sup 0}({sigma},{tau})={summation}{sub {ital k}}{ital b}{sub {ital k}}({sigma}){tau}{sup {ital k}} where {ital q}({sigma}) is a function of the momentum component {ital P}{sub 0}({sigma}), {italmore » b}{sub {ital k}}({sigma}) are obtained from the equation for the first order fluctuations, and {beta} is the exponent of the conformal factor in the Friedmann-Robertson-Walker metric, i.e., {ital R}{approx}{eta}{sup {beta}}. The string proper size, at first order in the fluctuations, grows such as the conformal factor {ital R}({eta}) and the string energy-momentum tensor corresponds to that of a null fluid. For a string in the black hole background, we study the planar case, but keep the dimensionality of the spacetime {ital D} generic. In the null string expansion, the radial, azimuthal, and time coordinates ({ital r},{phi},{ital t}) are {ital r}={summation}{sub {ital nA}}{sup 1}{sub {ital n}}({sigma})({minus}{tau}){sup 2{ital n}/({ital D}+1)}, {phi}={summation}{sub {ital n}}{ital A}{sup 3}{sub {ital n}}({sigma})(-{tau}){sup ({ital D}-5+2{ital n})/({ital D}+1)}, and {ital t}={summation}{sub {ital n}}{ital A}{sup 0}{sub {ital n}}({sigma})(-{tau}){sup 1+2{ital n}({ital D}-3)/({ital D}+1)}. The first terms of the series represent a {ital generic} approach to the Schwarzschild singularity at {ital r}=0. First and higher order string perturbations contribute with higher powers of {tau}.« less
  • By asymptotically matching a post-Newtonian (PN) metric to two perturbed Schwarzschild metrics, we generate approximate initial data (in the form of an approximate 4-metric) for a nonspinning black hole binary in a circular orbit. We carry out this matching through O(v{sup 4}) in the binary's orbital velocity v, and thus the resulting data, like the O(v{sup 4}) PN metric, are conformally curved. The matching procedure also fixes the quadrupole and octupole tidal deformations of the holes, including the 1PN corrections to the quadrupole fields. Far from the holes, we use the appropriate PN metric that accounts for retardation, which wemore » construct using the highest-order PN expressions available to compute the binary's past history. The data set's uncontrolled remainders are thus O(v{sup 5}) throughout the time slice; we also generate an extension to the data set that has uncontrolled remainders of O(v{sup 6}) in the purely PN portion of the time slice (i.e., not too close to the holes). This extension also includes various other readily available higher-order terms. The addition of these terms decreases the constraint violations in certain regions, even though it does not increase the data's formal accuracy. The resulting data are smooth, since we join all the metrics together by smoothly interpolating between them. We perform this interpolation using transition functions constructed to avoid introducing excessive additional constraint violations. Because of their inclusion of tidal deformations and outgoing radiation, these data should substantially reduce both the high- and low-frequency components of the initial spurious ('junk') radiation observed in current simulations that use conformally flat initial data. Such reductions in the nonphysical components of the initial data will be necessary for simulations to achieve the accuracy required to supply Advanced LIGO and LISA with the templates necessary for parameter estimation.« less
  • We consider 1+4 dimensional black-string solutions which are invariant under translation along the fifth direction. The solutions are characterized by the two parameters, mass and tension, of the source. The Gregory-Laflamme solution is shown to be characterized by the tension whose magnitude is one half of the mass per unit length of the source. A general class of black-string solutions with arbitrary tension is presented and the spacetime properties of the solutions are discussed.
  • We develop the perturbation theory for R2 string-corrected black hole solutions in d dimensions. After having obtained the master equation and the {alpha}'-corrected potential under tensorial perturbations of the metric, we study the stability of the Callan, Myers and Perry solution under these perturbations.
  • A misspelling error in the NUT is rectified.
