**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.
