Black holes with nonspherical horizon topology in higher dimensions: a non-perturbative approach

Abstract / Resumo 

We present numerical evidence for the existence of several types of new black hole solutions with a nonspherical event horizon topology in d>5 spacetime dimensions. These asymptotically flat configurations are found for specific metric Ansatze by directly solving the Einstein equations with suitable boundary conditions, within a non-perturbative approach. We give a discussion of the properties of the higher dimensional generalizations of the balanced black ring solutions. Apart from that, we discuss also several types of static black hole solutions.
