Matrix Theory Black Holes and the Gross Witten Transition
Abstract
Large N gauge theories have so called GrossWitten phase transitions which typically can occur in finite volume systems. In this paper we relate these transitions in supersymmetric gauge theories to transitions that take place between black hole solutions in general relativity. The correspondence between gauge theory and gravitation is through matrix theory which represents the gravitational system in terms of super Yang Mills theories on finite tori. We also discuss a related transition that was found by Banks, Fischler, Klebanov and Susskind.
