Geometry of nonsupersymmetric threecharge bound states
Abstract
We study the smooth nonsupersymmetric threecharge microstatesof Jejjala, Madden, Ross and Titchener using KaluzaKlein reductions of the solutions to five and four dimensions. Our aim is to improve our understanding of the relation between these nonsupersymmetric solutions and the wellstudied supersymmetric cases. We find some surprising qualitative differences. In the fivedimensional description, the solution has orbifold fixed points which break supersymmetry locally, so the geometries cannot be thought of as made up of separate halfBPS centers. In the fourdimensional description, the two singularities in the geometry are connected by a conical singularity, which makes it impossible to treat them independently and assign unambiguous brane charges to these centers.

We classify supersymmetric D0Dp bound states with a nonzero B field by considering T dualities of intersecting branes at angles. Especially we find that the D0D8 system with the Bfield preserves 1/16, 1/8, and 3/16 of supercharges if the B field satisfies the '(anti)selfdual' condition in dimension 8. The D0branes in this system are described by eightdimensional instantons on noncommutative R{sup 8}. We also discuss the extended ADHM construction of the eightdimensional instantons and its deformation by the Bfield. The modified ADHM equations admit a sort of the 'fuzzy sphere' [embeddings of SU(2)] solution.

Bound states in the continuum from supersymmetric quantum mechanics
Starting from a potential with a continuum of energy eigenstates, we show how the methods of supersymmetric quantum mechanics can be used to generate families of potentials with bound states in the continuum (BIC's). We also find the corresponding wave functions. Our method preserves the spectrum of the original potential except it adds these discrete BIC's at selected energies. Specifically, we compute and graph potentials which have bound states in the continuum starting from a null potential representing a free particle and from both the attractive and the repulsive Coulomb potentials. 
Threebody unitary transformations, threebody forces, and trinucleon bound state properties. [Charge form factor, Coulomb energy difference]
A threebody unitary transformation method for the study of threebody forces is presented. Starting with a threebody Hamiltonian with twobody forces, unitary transformations are introduced to generate Hamiltonians that have both two and threebody forces. For cases of physical interest, the twobody forces of the altered Hamiltonians are phase equivalent (for twobody scattering) to the original and the threebody force vanishes when any interparticle distance is large. Specific examples are presented. Applications for studying the possible role of threebody forces in accounting for trinucleon bound state properties are examined.

Supersymmetric black rings and threecharge supertubes
We present supergravity solutions for 1/8supersymmetric black supertubes with three charges and three dipoles. Their reduction to five dimensions yields supersymmetric black rings with regular horizons and two independent angular momenta. The general solution contains seven independent parameters and provides the first example of nonuniqueness of supersymmetric black holes. In ten dimensions, the solutions can be realized as D1D5P black supertubes. We also present a worldvolume construction of a supertube that exhibits three dipoles explicitly. This description allows an arbitrary cross section but captures only one of the angular momenta.
