Exact black five-branes in critical superstring theory. (English) Zbl 0990.81671
Summary: Exact solutions of ten-dimensional superstring theory corresponding to black five-branes [\((5+1)\)-dimensional extended objects surrounded by event horizons] are constructed. The solutions are represented as products of conformal field theories.
