Outline

Outline

  • The Black Hole Farey Tail. (Dijkgraaf, Moore,Maldacena, EV (2000) )

  • Topological Strings, GV-invariants and 5D BPS-counting.

  • 4d/5d connection, DT-invariants. (Dijkgraaf, Vafa, EV)

  • 4d Black Holes and Top. Strings: OSV conjecture.

  • M5-branes, MSW and AdS/CFT.(Gaiotto, Strominger, Yin)

  • A New Black Hole Farey Tail. (work in progress)

  • Related work(Denef, Moore )


The rademacher formula

Then we have

The Rademacher Formula

Suppose

is a modular form of weight w

Exact semi-classical expansion in terms of saddle-point contributions

including corrections due to ‘light’ (virtual) BPS particles


Topological strings a model

Resummation of free energy:

Genus 0 free energy:

Topological Strings: A-model

Higher genus:


M theory interpretation

M-theory on CY x S x R

Gopakumar, Vafa

M-theory interpretation:

Euclidean time as 11th dimension

5D spin couples to graviphoton

Schwinger calculation of ‘D2-D0’ boundstate

Free energy


Top string describes gas of 5d bps particles

Questions:

  • Does this formula count all 5d BPS-states?

  • Does it agree with the Bekenstein-Hawking formula for 5d black holes?

  • ?

  • Does it have an interpretation in terms of 4D BPS black holes?

  • What is the interpretation of the exponential pre-factor?

IIA on CY:

Entropy as Legendre transform

Cardoso, de Wit, Mohaupt

Ooguri, Strominger, Vafa

Connection with topological string


Gv dt versus osv partition function

OSV partition function

  • What is the explanation of the (absolute valued)-squared?

  • What is the origin of the transformation ?

  • Does the gas of 5D particles have an interpretation for 4D black holes?

GV/DT versus OSV partition function

GV/DT partition function


4d black holes from 4 0 cft

Maldacena, Strominger, Witten

The OSV partition function equals the elliptic genus

4d Black Holes from (4,0) CFT

M-theory on CY (x S )

M5-brane wraps a 4-cycle in CY=> 5d black string

6d (2,0) theory => (4,0) 2d CFT

Contains chiral bosons => metric

Lorentzian Narain lattice => M2-branes charges

Near-horizon geometry becomes


Gv from msw

GV from MSW

Gaiotto, Strominger, Yin

The elliptic genus

has a low temperature description in terms of

a gas of chiral primaries: wrapped

(anti-)M2-branes at ‘north’ and ‘south’ pole.


Osv from msw

High temperature expansion

OSV from MSW

Gaiotto, Strominger, Yin

The elliptic genus

is a modular form of weight 0


Osv from msw1

Corrections due to presence of (virtual) BPS-particles

OSV from MSW

Gaiotto, Strominger, Yin


Black hole farey tail for n 2

Black Hole Farey Tail for N=2

Connection with topological string occurs in large-c limit, expect

Conclusions

Conclusions

Topological String Theory computes

  • Leading semi-classical action of the saddle-points.

  • Corrections due to particles below the BH-treshold for GN => 0

  • Open problems:

  • Derivation of “no BH-formation”-bound on states:

  • seems to restrict genus of embedded M2-brane

  • Proof of the Rademacher expansion in this case.

  • Other saddle points (black rings, multi-centered..)

  • How to incorporate D6 branes…..,
