Extremization principles for BPS black holes in AdS

Speaker:Alberto ZaffaroniInstitut:Milano-Bicocca

Abstract:One of the great success of string theory is the microscopical explanation of the entropy of a class of asymptotically flat black holes. Much less is known about asymptotically AdS black holes in four dimensions or higher. In this talk I explain how to derive the entropy of a class of asymptotically AdS supersymmetric black holes in four dimensions using holography and localisation techniques in field theory. I'll also discuss some preliminary results for five-dimensional black holes.
