Title: Black holes and five-brane thermodynamics

Abstract

The phase diagram for Dp-branes in M theory compactified on T[sup 4],T[sup 4]/Z[sub 2],T[sup 5], and T[sup 6] is constructed. As for the lower-dimensional tori considered in our previous work [E. Martinec and V. Sahakian, Phys. Rev. D [bold 59], 124005 (1999)], the black brane phase at high entropy connects onto matrix theory at low entropy; we thus recover all known instances of matrix theory as consequences of the Maldacena conjecture. The difficulties that arise for T[sup 6] are reviewed. We also analyze the D1-D5 system on T[sup 5]; we discuss its relation to matrix models of M5-branes, and use spectral flow as a tool to investigate the dependence of the phase structure on angular momentum.
