**Black Holes in Supergravity and String Theory**

by Thomas Mohaupt

**Publisher**: arXiv 2000**Number of pages**: 64

**Description**:

We give an elementary introduction to black holes in supergravity and string theory. The focus is on BPS solutions in four- and higher-dimensional supergravity and string theory. Basic ideas and techniques are explained in detail, including exercises with solutions.

**Inflation and String Theory**

by

**Daniel Baumann, Liam McAllister**-

**arXiv**

We review cosmological inflation and its realization in quantum field theory and string theory. We describe two intertwined approaches to the physics of inflation: from the bottom up in effective field theory, and from the top down in string theory.
