(04.02.) Black Holes from F-theory

We study 5d supersymmetric spinning black holes which descend from strings of generic N=(1,0) supergravity in 6d. These strings have an F-theory realization in 6d as D3 branes wrapping smooth genus g curves in the base of elliptic threefolds. They enjoy (0,4) worldsheet supersymmetry with an extra SU(2)_L current algebra a level g realized on the left-movers. These are new CFT’s that capture the micro states and entropy of the spinning black holes.
