Title: Dynamics of colliding branes and black brane production

Abstract

We study the dynamics of colliding domain walls including self-gravity. The initial data is set up by applying a Bogomol'nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield (BPS) domain wall in five-dimensional supergravity, and we evolve the system determining the final outcome of collisions. After a collision, a spacelike curvature singularity covered by a horizon is formed in the bulk, resulting in a black brane with trapped domain walls. This is a generic consequence of collisions, except for nonrelativistic weak field cases, in which the walls pass through one another or multiple bounces take place without singularity formation. These results show that incorporating the self-gravity drastically changes a naive picture of colliding branes.

  • We consider both the five-dimensional Myers-Perry and Reissner-Nordstrom black holes (BHs) and black p-branes in (4+p)-dimensions. By employing the isometry with the colliding plane waves (CPWs) we generate Cauchy-Horizon (CH) forming CPW solutions. From the five-dimensional vacuum solution through the Kaluza-Klein reduction the corresponding Einstein-Maxwell-dilaton solution is obtained. This CH forming cross polarized solution with the dilaton turns out to be a rather complicated nontype D metric. Since we restrict ourselves to the five-dimensional BHs we obtain exact solutions for colliding 2- and 3-form fields in (p+4)-dimensions for p{>=}1. By dualizing these forms we can obtain also colliding (p+1)- andmore » (p+2)-forms which are important processes in the low energy limit of the string theory. All solutions obtained are CH forming, implying that an analytic extension beyond is possible.« less
  • We consider configurations of D6-branes with a D0-brane charge given by recent work of Taylor and compute interaction potentials with various D-brane probes using a 1-loop open string calculation. These results are compared to a supergravity calculation using the solution given by Sheinblatt of an extremal black hole carrying 0-brane and 6-brane charges. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • We use the AdS-CFT duality to study the special point on the Coulomb branch of N=4 SU(N) gauge theory which corresponds to a spherically symmetric shell of D3-branes. This point is of interest both because the spacetime region inside the shell is flat, and because this configuration gives a very simple example of the transition between D-branes in the perturbative string regime and the nonperturbative regime of black holes. We discuss how this geometry is described in the dual gauge theory, through its effect on the two-point functions and Wilson loops. In the calculation of the two-point function, we stressmore » the importance of absorption by the branes. (c) 1999 The American Physical Society.« less
  • We present a comprehensive black-hole event generator, BlackMax, which simulates the experimental signatures of microscopic and Planckian black-hole production and evolution at the LHC in the context of brane world models with low-scale quantum gravity. The generator is based on phenomenologically realistic models free of serious problems that plague low-scale gravity, thus offering more realistic predictions for hadron-hadron colliders. The generator includes all of the black-hole gray-body factors known to date and incorporates the effects of black-hole rotation, splitting between the fermions, nonzero brane tension, and black-hole recoil due to Hawking radiation (although not all simultaneously). The generator can bemore » interfaced with Herwig and Pythia. The main code can be downloaded from http://www-pnp.physics.ox.ac.uk/{approx}issever/BlackMax/blackmax.html.« less
  • In this note, we investigate the homogeneous radial dynamics of (Dp, NS5) systems without and with one compactified transverse direction, in the framework of Dirac-Born-Infeld effective action. During the homogeneous evolution, the electric field on the D-brane is always conserved and the radial motion could be reduced to a one-dimension dynamical system with an effective potential. When the Dp-brane energy is not high, the brane moves in a restricted region, with the orbits depending on the conserved energy, angular momentum through the form of the effective potential. When the Dp-brane energy is high enough, it can escape to infinity. Itmore » turns out that the conserved angular momentum plays an interesting role in the dynamics. Moreover, we discuss the gauge dynamics around the tachyon vacuum and find that the dynamics is very reminiscent of the string fluid in the rolling tachyon case.« less
