|Title:||Some recent results on microstate geometries.|
|Date:||Wed, Jun 01, 2011, 15:30 - 17:00|
|Place:||Seminar Room A|
I will briefly summarize the main physical rationale for and status of so-called microstate geometries which have played an important role in improving our understanding of black holes. Then I will discuss some new results, in particular a new class of hairy black holes and new supertube solutions, and some open problems.
