**Black Holes in Higher Dimensions**

by Roberto Emparan, Harvey S. Reall

**Publisher**: arXiv 2008**Number of pages**: 77

**Description**:

We review black hole solutions of higher-dimensional vacuum gravity, and of higher-dimensional supergravity theories. The discussion of vacuum gravity is pedagogical, with detailed reviews of Myers-Perry solutions, black rings, and solution-generating techniques. We discuss black hole solutions of maximal supergravity theories, including black holes in anti-de Sitter space.

**arXiv**

This essay aims to summarize the main physical features arising from a new supersymmetric theory of gravitation. It deals with gravity inside the limits of a meta-field theory, that is, a non-quantized but consistent representation of supergravity.

**Introduction to Supergravity**

by

**Henning Samtleben**-

**Leibniz Universität**

There are several reasons to consider the combination of supersymmetry and gravitation. The foremost is that if supersymmetry turns out to be realized at all in nature, then it must eventually appear in the context of gravity.
