Topological G2 strings
Abstract
We review the recently found map that takes any static and neutral KaluzaKlein black hole, i.e. any static and neutral black hole on Minkowskispace times a circle ℳ︁d × S1, and maps it to a corresponding solution for a non and nearextremal brane on a circle. This gives a precise connection between phases of KaluzaKlein black holes and the thermodynamic behavior of the nongravitational theories dual to nearextremal branes on a circle. In particular, for the thermodynamics of stronglycoupled supersymmetric YangMills theories on a circle we predict the existence of a new nonuniform phase and find new information about the localized phase. We also find evidence for the existence of a new stable phase of (2,0) Little String Theory in the canonical ensemble for temperatures above its Hagedorn temperature.
