Regular 3-charge 4D black holes and their microscopic description

Journal of High Energy Physics, Jan 2015

The perturbative α′ corrections to Type-IIA String Theory compactified on a Calabi-Yau three-fold allow the construction of regular three-charge supersymmetric black holes in four dimensions, whose entropy scales with the charges as \( S\sim {\left({p}^1{p}^2{p}^3\right)}^{\frac{2}{3}} \). We construct an M-theory uplift of these “quantum” black holes and show that they can be interpreted as arising from three stacks of M2 branes on a conical singularity. This in turns allow us relate them via a series of dualities to a system of D3 branes carrying momentum and thus to give a microscopic interpretation of their entropy.

The entropies of these black holes scale like the square root of the product of their charges (or some some duality-invariant form thereof [5]), and in the microscopic counting this square root comes from using Cardys formula to count the states of a certain 1+1 dimensional system of strings and branes. However, in certain four-dimensional compactifications of string theory one can construct three-charge black holes whose entropy scales with these charges like S 2 p1p2p3 3 [6]. The curvature at the horizon of these black holes is small, precisely as one would expect from the fact that their entropy grows like the square of the charge. These black holes cannot be constructed in normal four-dimensional supergravity, where the horizon curvature of three-charge black hole is Planckian, but exist if one adds to the tions at tree level in gS. Since these black holes do not have a regular limit when these correction terms are removed1 they are called quantum black holes. The purpose of this letter is to try to understand the microscopic entropy of the type IIA quantum black holes constructed in [6]. The first step in this direction is to uplift these black hole solutions to eleven dimensions and to propose an M-theory interpretation in terms of three mutually-orthogonal intersecting stacks of M2-branes at the tip of a fourcompactifications come from higher-derivative terms in String Theory [11, 12], the uplifted black hole will be a solution of the equations of motion of eleven-dimensional supergravity modified by the addition of certain higher-derivative terms. The second step is to argue that if the Calabi-Yau manifold can be written as a (possibly singular) elliptic fibration, the branes that make the eleven-dimensional solution can be dualized to a configuration of two intersecting mutually-supersymmetric D3 branes carrying momentum along their common direction. By counting the possible way of carrying this momentum and by remembering that these D3 branes sit on top of a conical singularity that effectively enhances the central charge of the 1+1 dimensional theory on their worldvolume, the quantum black holes. In section 2 we introduce the effective theory corresponding to Type-IIA String Theory compactified on a Calabi-Yau manifold as well as the corresponding Type-IIA quantum black hole solutions. In section 3 we argue that the M-theory uplift of quantum black holes can be interpreted as arising from three stacks of intersecting M2 branes and in section 4 we use this to propose a microscopic description of their entropy. Section 5 contains conclusions and future directions. In the appendices A and B we review the construction of Type-IIA quantum black holes as well as the H-FGK formalism [1321] and the structure used in their construction. Type-IIA quantum black holes Quantum black holes [6] are solutions of the effective theory corresponding to Type-IIA String Theory compactified on a Calabi-Yau manifold in the presence of perturbative corrections to the Special Kahler geometry of the vector multiplet sector. Despite having only three charges, these four-dimensional supersymmetric black holes have a macroscopically large horizon area. It is not hard to see either from this or from their explicit construction that these black holes do not have a macroscopic horizon in the classical limit, when the perturbative corrections are turned off, which justifies calling them quantum black holes. Type-IIA string theory on a Calabi-Yau manifold Type-IIA String Theory compactified to four-dimensions on a Calabi-Yau three-fold, with supergravity coupled to vector- and hyper-multiplets. As explained in appendix A, we are going to truncate the hyperscalars to a constant value, and therefore we will only be concerned about the vector-multiplet sector of the theory. The corresponding prepotential third polylogarithmic function. The constant c is proportional to the Euler characteristic The first two terms in the prepotential correspond to tree level and fourth-loop perwhile the third term comes from non-perturbative corrections produced by world-sheet instantons. In this paper we will focus on large-volume compactifications where these corrections can be safely ignored, and hence focus on the quantum black holes obtained from the prepotential (2.2). The most general quantum black hole solutions, that are governed by the prepotential (2.1) have been constructed in [21]. The scalars zi are given by zi = X . Adding the constant term c to the prepotential modifies the geometry of the scalar manifold, which is no longer homogeneous, and therefore it is said that the geometry has been corrected by quantum effects. The scalar geometry defined by (2.3) is hence the so-called quantum corrected d-SK geometry [26, 27]. The attractor points of (2.3) have been extensively studied in [28]. The Type-IIA quantum black holes belong to a particular class of purely magnetic black hole solutions of the theory defined by (2.3). We review them in section 2 and refer the reader to [6, 21] for more details. The quantum-corrected STU model Type-IIA quantum black holes exist in any Type-IIA Calabi-Yau compactification with h1,1 > h2,1. To make contact to a description of these black holes in terms of intersecting branes we have to choose a particular model and the best candidate is the popular STU model, whose black hole solutions and attractors have been extensively studied. Since the 2Actually, the prepotential obtained in a Type-IIA Calabi-Yau compactification is symplectically equivalent to the prepotential (2.1). hypermultiplets are truncated, the specific value of h2,1 is irrelevant as long as it is smaller and therefore the prepotential (2.3) becomes The normal four- and five-dimensional black holes and attractors of this quantumcorrected STU model been previously considered in [710, 19, 28], but here we focus on the black holes that do not have a classical (c 0) limit. The solution corresponding to these black holes (discussed in detail in appendix B) has The space-time metric is therefore 1 1 ds42 = 31c 3 H1H2H3 2/3 dt2 + 3c 3 H1H2H3 2/3 d~y 2 , where d~y 2 = dy1 2 + dy3 2 is the Euclidean metric on R3. Since in the H-FGK formalism the H-variables correspond to the imaginary part of the covariantly holomorphic symplectic section appropriately weighted to be Kahler neutral, supersymmetry require them to be harmonic functions on the transverse space R3. A single-center black hole Hi = ai + i = 1, 2, 3 , where r2 = y 3 2, the pi are the three charges of the black hole (A.11) and the ai are arbitrary constants that can be written in terms of the asymptotic value of the scalars at spatial infinity zi as where spi is the sign of the charge pi. The entropy of this black hole is h1,1 = 1 , F (X ) = X X 0X zi = ic 3 ai = spi 3c , S = and its mass is the sum of the three charges: M = It is easy to see that each term that contributes to the mass is positive definite since Sign ai = Sign pi and a a a 1 2 3 > 0. In the next section we will try to describe this threecharge four-dimensional black hole in terms of intersecting branes in M-theory. Notice that the black hole solution presented in this section is a solution of a standard Supergravity theory without higher-order curvature terms, and which incorporates all the perturbative String Theory corrections at the two-derivative level. Therefore, it must be understood to be valid when the curvature remains small compared to the string length and is in that regime where the perturbative correction that we are considering corrects the geometry of the black hole and in particular its entropy, making a singular charge configuration into a non-singular one. The M-theory configuration In order to see whether Type-IIA quantum black holes have an interpretation via intersecting branes it is desirable to have the precise ten-dimensional configuration corresponding to the four-dimensional solution. For tree-level Type-IIA Calabi-Yau compactifications the map between the ten-dimensional and the four-dimensional fields is known [2932], but since we are considering four-dimensional solutions to the prepotential that includes an R4-like term in ten dimensions, no explicit map is known. However, as we will show below, we will still be able to control the behavior of the dilaton and the Calabi-Yau volume, which will allow us to obtain the higher-dimensional configuration corresponding to Type-IIA quantum black holes. The string theory dilaton As explained in appendix A, for black hole solutions of ungauged four-dimensional supergravity, the hyperscalars are truncated to a constant value. In principle, the dilaton belongs to the universal hypermultiplet, and therefore one may naively conclude that it should be constant for every black hole solution. However, in the process of obtaining the ings and redefinitons are performed on the original ten-dimensional fields. In addition, since we are considering all the perturbative corrections to the Special Kahler sector, the theory of Type-IIA String Theory at tree level, so we should expect more intrincate redefinitions. Our purpose is to show now that Type-IIA quantum black holes have a constant ten-dimensional dilaton and a constant Calabi-Yau manifold volume, and we will do this q as follows [33, 34] Vol6 = J J J , is the volume of the Calabi-Yau manifold, J being the corresponding Kahler form. The compactification Calabi-Yau manifold by [33, 34] eK = e 2 Vol6 = const. Perturbative corrections. It is also easy to see that this tree level result is not changed when including perturbative corrections. Indeed, [11, 12] have shown that the loop corrections in ten dimensions that give rise to the perturbative corrections of the prepotential from the four-dimensional point of view, only mix the dilaton and the volume among themselves. Therefore, since they were constant at the tree level, they continue to be constant after the loop corrections have been taken into account. We thus conclude that for Type-IIA quantum black holes the dilaton and the volume of the Calabi-Yau manifold are torus [35, 36] In order to argue that the M-theory uplift of quantum black holes can be interpreted as coming from a superposition of M2 branes on a conical singularity it is useful to recall the usual supersymmetric solution corresponding to three stacks of M2 branes on a six+ H21 dx52 + dx62 + gmndymdyni , directions. Supersymmetry requires the transverse metric, gmn, to where the Hyper-Kahler space is a Gibbons-Hawking (Taub-NUT) space: ds2GH = V (y)1 d + Ai(y)dyi 2 i = 1, 2, 3 , The eleven-dimensional metric is therefore given by + H21 dx52 + dx62 + ds2GHi , where now the Hi are harmonic in R3. In order to interpret Type-IIA quantum black-holes as composed of three stacks of orthogonally intersecting M2-branes, one should uplift their solution to M-theory. Since the four-dimensional theory where these black holes are constructed includes all the perturbathe standard eleven-dimensional supergravity to which one has added the higher-derivative There are two features of the quantum black hole metric (2.9) that will guide us to obtain this solution. The first is that the volume of the six-dimensional torus/CalabiYau manifold is constant to all levels in the corrections and hence, rescaling the time to 1 p3c 3 t, the eleven-dimensional solution can be put into an M2-brane form: ds2 = (H1H2H3) 3 3c 3 H1H2H3 1 dt2 + H11 dx12 + dx22 + H31 dx32 + dx42 + H21 dx52 + dx62 + ds2 . The four-dimensional base metric ds2 is no longer Gibbons-Hawking but becomes: i = 1, 2, 3 . This metric is not Ricci flat and it does not even have constant curvature. This is to be expected, since the solution (3.9) solves the equations of motion of eleven-dimensional supergravity modified by appropriate higher curvature terms, which modify in turn the Gibbons-Hawking character of the base. Indeed, if one tries to compare this metric to a Gibbons-Hawking one, one finds that on one hand the gauge field Ai(y), corresponding to D6 brane charge in ten dimensions, is zero, but that on the other hand the corresponding warp factor is not constant by rather has the form: which has the same behavior at infinity and near the black hole as the warp factor of a Taub-NUT space with a nontrivial charge: the function V becomes harmonic throughout the space despite the absence of a Gibbons-Hawking (D6) charge. It important to notice that in the dilaton of the quantum black hole solution being constant. This is an nontrivial check that the eleven-dimensional brane configuration we propose gives the fundamental constituents of Type-IIA quantum black holes. Let us remind the reader that the eleven-dimensional solution that we have presented here was obtained from the conjectured uplift of a four-dimensional quantum black hole, and it has not been verified to satisfy the involved equations of motion of eleven-dimensional est solution and we have presented further evidence that supports the chosen uplift: for example we have obtained that the dilaton must be constant from two different calculations, one depending on the uplift and another one independent of it. The microscopic entropy Having obtained an eleven-dimensional metric that resembles that of three stacks of coincident M2 branes, we can easily compactify it along one of the torus directions to obtain a D2-D2-F1 metric, which upon a further T-duality along the F1 direction becomes a D3-D3P metric, where the momentum P runs along the direction common to the two D3 branes. This duality chain transforms the quantum eleven-dimensional black hole into a type IIB D3-D3-P black hole, whose microscopic entropy can be reproduced straightforwardly by Strominger-Vafa-type arguments. Indeed, if the numbers of the two types of D3 branes are N1 and N2 and if NP units of momentum are running along the common directions of these branes, the most efficient way to carry this momentum when N1 and N2 are co-prime is to use the strings stretched between the two stacks of D3 branes. These bi-fundamental 1 strings have a mass gap equal to N1N2R , where R is the radius of the common direction of the branes, and hence the entropy of the system comes from partitioning the NP units of momentum between modes that carry integer multiples of N11N2 , or otherwise from the number of integer partitions of N1N2NP . By taking into account the fact that there are four bosonic species of bi-fundamentals as well as their fermionic partners, this gives the hole with entropy 2N1N2NP N [2, 3]. The argument above reproduces the entropy of a D3-D3-P black hole in five dimensions, which is sourced by a stack of branes in R4. One can write this R4 as a Gibbons-Hawking stack of D3-D3-P branes in a Taub-NUT space with Kaluza-Klein monopole charge N , the We would like to use a similar argument to explain microscopically the entropy of our quantum black holes. However, at first glance there are two problems with this: the 3c 3 (H1H2H3)1/3. Nevertheless, near the branes the warp factor behaves like that of a Gibbons-Hawking space. Hence, even if the branes do not sit on top of an AN singularity, they sit on some other conical singularity whose effect on the central charge of the D3-D3 CFT one can calculate. The second problem is that a generic eleven-dimensional uplift of a quantum black hole will not be a six-torus but a more complicated CY manifold. The key ingredient needed to relate the quantum black holes to the D3-D3-P system is the presence of two U(1) isometries, one of which is used for reducing to a ten-dimensional Type IIA black hole, and the other for T-dualizing.3 This can be easily done for any CY manifold that has a T 2 fiber. Nevertheless, in order for our construction of quantum black holes to yield regular solution, this elliptic fibration must be singular: CY manifolds with regular fibration have zero Euler characteristic and hence c vanishes which makes the black hole horizon singular. in gS [21], but the resulting solutions involve the Lambert W function and are much harder The way out is to focus on singular elliptic fibrations, which give CY manifolds with nonzero Euler number. The places where the fibration degenerates become seven-branes upon dualization to the type IIB duality frame. The presence of these seven-branes does not affect the entropy counting, because this entropy comes from D3-D3 strings carrying momentum, which do not see the seven-branes. There are two ways to take into account the effect of the conical singularity on the entropy. The first is to compare this singularity with a Gibbons-Hawking solution, and determine its effective Gibbons-Hawking charge. The second is to focus on the near-horizon geometry of the black hole and to compute the corresponding Brown-Henneaux central charge [37], which determines how the central charge of the D3-D3 CFT increases when the D3 branes are placed on top of the conical singularity. As we will explain below, the two calculations are equivalent, but since the first is more intuitive we will present it here. Near the tip of a Gibbons-Hawking metric ds2GH = V (y)1 d + Ai(y)dyi 2 i = 1, 2, 3 , the metric becomes that of R4/ZN V = 1 + with = 2 r and d (23) the standard metric on S3/ZN . When the D3-D3 system is placed at the tip of this space its central charge increases by a factor of N . This is a well-known phenomenon for the D1-D5-P black hole in Taub-NUT [38], and our system is just its T-dual. Now, given a conical metric of the type (4.3), there is a way to extract directly N = where VS3 is the volume of the three-sphere S3 and VS3/ZN is the volume of the S3/ZN , at the same radius. In the Brown-Henneaux formalism this ratio of the volumes also gives the decrease of the effective three-dimensional Newtons constant, and hence the increase of the central charge of the corresponding CFT. 3If these two isometries are not present our microscopic description does not work, but neither does the microscopic description of normal M2-M2-M2 black holes. For the quantum black hole metric we discussed in section 3.3, the base metric ds2 = V (r)1d2 + V (r) dr2 + r2d(22) , has a conical singularity in the near-tip region: i = 1, 2, 3 S = Hence, the microscopic entropy of the quantum black holes will be given by where N1 and N2 are the numbers of D3 branes and NP is the number of momentum quanta. Since the supergravity charges are proportional to these numbers, it is clear that this microscopic entropy count reproduces the correct charge growth of the quantum 2r ds2 2r NE 3 c p1p2p3 1/3 Hence, the singularity will increase the central charge of the D3-D3-P CFT by a factor given by the ratio of the volume of S3 and the volume of the transverse space, which is nothing but NE . Upon defining (with hindsight) which is already an important confirmation that our strategy is correct. Of course, the ideal would be to find exactly the coefficients that relate the supergravity charges to the quantized ones, and therefore establish that the macroscopic and the microscopic entropies are identical. However, since we know neither the eleven-dimensional uplifts of the Maxwell fields of the four-dimensional quantum black hole, nor the volume of the Calabi-Yau threefold and its submanifolds, we cannot determine these coefficients from first principles. However, what we can do is to use the symmetry of the STU model in order to argue that in the M2-M2-M2 duality frame the supergravity charges are related to the quantized where we have defined pi equation (4.11) becomes: pi to ease the presentation. We can now ask what is the value 1 c 6 . NE = 3 c p1p2p3 1/3 . NE = (4 N1N2NP )1/3 the Hence one may naively infer that NE can never be a natural number. However, it turns There is a nontrivial check that this value satisfies: the number NE , which gives the increase of the CFT central charge is expected to be a natural number, at least for some values of N1, N2 and NP . However, NE is defined in terms of c, and therefore contains both a factor and therefore NE can easily be an integer for a suitable choice of N1, N2 and NP . The fact that the transcendental number in c drops out of this relation is a nontrivial check of our proposed microscopic description. Indeed, in [7] it was argued that a black hole entropy expression that contains such a transcendental number can never be reproduced from microscopic calculations, and our microscopic proposal evades this by absorbing this transcendental number into the central charge increase of the underlying CFT. The puzzling aspect of equation (4.16) is that it makes the classical limit very hard to see. Indeed, as we explained in section 2 if one turns off the quantum corrections (c 0) while keeping the supergravity charges of the black hole constant, the horizon becomes singular. This is reflected in our construction by the fact that our black hole has three charges and, when c 0, the warping of the base space becomes trivial and the corresponding entropy becomes that of the three-charge system in four dimensions, which does not give rise to a macroscopic horizon. However, one can also ask what happens if one takes the c 0 limit while keeping the quantized black hole charges, N1, N2 and NP constant. This does not affect NE, so it looks like in this limit the black hole entropy remains macroscopic. This is consistent with the fact that in this limit the four-dimensional supergravity charges blow up (4.14), but the factors of c cancel from the expression of the near-horizon limit of the metric (2.9), which remains a regular AdS2 S2. On the other hand, the expressions of the four-dimensional moduli diverge, and therefore it appears that in this limit the dictionary between ten- and four-dimensional solutions breaks down. It would clearly be interesting to try to derive equation (4.14) from first principles to see precisely how this breakdown occurs. We have constructed an eleven-dimensional metric (3.9) that upon dimensional reduction gives the Type-IIA quantum black hole of the STU quantum-corrected model. Because the four-dimensional metric has constant dilaton and CY volume, this eleven-dimensional uplift can be interpretation as arising from three stacks of orthogonal M2 branes that sit at the apex of a cone in a four-dimensional transverse space. Because of the presence of correction terms in the Lagrangian, this space is not Gibbons-Hawking, although it has exactly the same kind of warping as a Gibbons-Hawking space. The strength of the conical singularity is proportional to the cubic root of the product of the three M2 charges When the dix-dimensional internal space of the compactification has a T 2 fiber we can dualize this solution to an asymptotically four-dimensional three-charge D3-D3-P solution in type IIB string theory. In flat space the microscopic entropy of this system is not enough to give rise to a regular horizon, but we have shown that the conical singularity enhances the central charge of this system, and the resulting microscopic entropy reproduces the which we could not determine. We have however been able to show that if this coefficient is such that the entropies match, a certain dependence of the entropy on transcendental numbers drops out, which we believe is a nontrivial check of our proposal. Since we are working in a supergravity theory in the presence of quantum corrections to the geometry of the scalar manifold, our proposed microscopic description is not at the same level of rigor as the usual three- and four-charge black hole entropy counting. However, the fact that we have found a brane interpretation that reproduces the highlyunusual charge dependence of the entropy of quantum black holes makes us confident that we have identified the correct microscopic framework for understanding the entropy of all Type-IIA quantum black holes, which remains as an important open problem in String We would like to thank T.

Type-IIA quantum black holes are black hole solutions of Type-IIA String Theory compactified down to four dimensions on a Calabi-Yau three-fold, which is described, up to venient to review the basic formulation of the theory and its vector multiplet sector, since the hypermultiplets and the fermions can be always truncated for black hole solutions. The can be written as follows [39, 40] S =Z d4xp|g| nR + Gij(z, z)zizj + 2I(z, z)F F of the symplectic complex period matrix N . Hence, the period matrix determines the equations of motion following from the action (A.1) are given by G + 2Gij zi zj 2 g zizj + 8Im NF +F = 0 , (Gijzj) 2 iGjkzj zk + where we have defined g F = Re NF + Im N F . identities can be written in terms of differential forms as follows be arranged into a symplectic vector AM = . Supersymmetry constrains the couplings of all the fields of the theory in a very precise way which, for the vector-multiplet sector, is elegantly encoded in the language of Special Kahler Geometry [39, 41]. In fact, the Gij = ijlog i XF X F Since the metric is spherically symmetric, we will assume that all the fields of the theory be together arranged into a symplectic vector Q . In the background given by (A.9) Maxwells equations can be integrated explicitly, in such a way that the complete T be a symplectic vector made from the time components of where MMN is a symplectic and symmetric matrix constructed from the couplings of the scalars and the vector fields as zi Therefore, choosing a second-degree homogeneous function F (X ) automatically determines which has the appropriate matter content for constructing black hole solutions. The most general static and spherically symmetric metric that solves the equations of motion (A.1) is given by [4244] MMN (N ) RI1 We choose to express all Maxwell field strengths in terms of the time components of the electric and the magnetic connection one-forms. For the electric field strengths this gives: equation (A.14) using equation (A.3). Since the connection one-forms can be explicitly supergravity action coupled to vector multiplets can then be shown to be completely equivalent, assuming the space-time background given (A.9) and radial dependence for all the SFGK [U, z] = d nU 2 + Gijzizj e2U Vbh(z, z, Q)o , together with the Hamiltonian constraint, Here Vbh is the so-called black hole potential, which is given by [43] U 2 + Gijzizj + e2U Vbh(z, z, Q) = r02 . Vbh(z, z, Q) 2 MMN (N )QM We are now ready to introduce the H-FGK formalism. The H-FGK formalism [14, 16, 17, 20, 44] consists of a particular change of variables from the (2nv +1)-real U, zi to a new set the U-duality group of the theory, and become harmonic functions in Euclidean R3 in the 2 P MN log W 2 Q + P M log W H M H P HP = 0 (A.18) together with the Hamiltonian constraint 2 MN log W 2 Q r02 = 0 (A.19) e2U = W(H) HM (H)HM , H M + iHM = V M being the covariantly holomorphic symplectic section that determines the vectorH M (I) H M (H) stands for the real part of V M /X Kahler invariant. The symplectic vector M written as a function of the imaginary part, HM ; this can always be done by solving the stabilization equations. The function W(H) is usually known in the literature as the Hesse potential. The effective theory is now expressed in terms of 2 (nv + 1) variables HM . The solution depends on 2 (nv + 1) + 1 parameters, namely the 2 (nv + 1) charges Q and the non-extremality parameter r0, from which it is always possible to reconstruct the complete solution in terms of the four-dimensional fields of the theory. The H-FGK M = formalism introduces an extra real degree of freedom. Hence the H-FGK action enjoys an extra gauge symmetry which, by gauge fixing, allows to get rid of the extra degree of A quantum class of black holes In this appendix we present the solution of the equations (A.18) and (A.19) that correspond to the quantum black holes of Type-IIA String Theory. Type-IIA quantum black holes are based on the following truncation of the H-variables and the charges Using now equation (B.1) together with equations (A.21) and (2.3) we find H0 = H0 = Hi = 0 , p0 = q0 = qi = 0 . e2U = W(H) = metric, c must be positive, that is, h1,1 > h2,1 is a necessary condition in order to obtain an admissible solution. There are plenty of Calabi-Yau manifolds that satisfy this condition, so we will not worry any more about it. The scalar fields, purely imaginary, are zi = i (3!) 31 c 31 It is easy to see that the solution is not consistent in the classical limit c 0, and also that solving the equations of motion. Hence, we conclude that the corresponding solutions are genuinely quantum solutions, i.e., they only exist when the perturbative quantum corrections are incorporated into the action, and thus they are called Type-IIA quantum automatically know that [4547] r0 = 0 , solutions we have to take r0 0 and therefore the general metric (A.9) simplifies to ds42 = e2 U()dt2 + e2 U()mndxmdxn , The entropy of the Type-IIA quantum black holes is given by S = using equation (A.12). For Type-IIA quantum black holes we obtain R00 = 0 , I0i = Ii0 = 0 , Rij = 0 , which in turn implies that the following components of MMN are zero M0i = Mi0 = 0 , M00 = M00 = Mij = Mij = 0 , 0i = M i0 = 0 . From equations (A.12) and (B.1) we obtain 1 Z e2U Ai t = 1 Z e2U A0t = 2 1 Z e2U This implies that the connection one-forms Ai have only magnetic components, which give rise to the magnetic charges pi of the black hole solution (A.11). Notice however that the time component of graviphoton A0 is non-zero, although the corresponding charges are precise cancellation in the corresponding formula for q0: Open Access.
