Study of anisotropic black branes in asymptotically anti-de Sitter

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We investigate the four dimensional gravitational theories which admit homogeneous but anisotropic black brane solutions in asymptotically AdS spacetime. The gravitational theories we consider are 1) Einstein-Maxwell-dilaton theory, and 2) Einstein-Maxwell-dilaton-axion theory with SL(2, Z) symmetry. We obtain the solutions both analytically and numerically. Our solutions approach singular behavior at the horizon in the extremal limit but in non-extremal case, they are smooth everywhere. We also discuss how the third law of thermodynamics holds in our set-up.
