Lectures on Black Holes, Topological Strings and Quantum Attractors

Lectures on Black Holes, Topological Strings and Quantum Attractors
by Boris Pioline

Publisher: arXiv 2007
Number of pages: 103

Description:
In these lecture notes, we review some recent developments on the relation between the macroscopic entropy of four-dimensional BPS black holes and the microscopic counting of states, beyond the thermodynamical, large charge limit. After a brief overview of charged black holes in supergravity and string theory, we give an extensive introduction to special and very special geometry, attractor flows and topological string theory, including holomorphic anomalies.
