No horizons in pp-waves.

Hubeny, V. E. and Rangamani, M. (2002) 'No horizons in pp-waves.', Journal of high energy physics., 11 . p. 21.


We argue that pp-wave backgrounds can not admit event horizons. We also comment on pp-wave generalizations which would admit horizons and show that there exists a black string solution which asymptotes to a five dimensional plane wave background.

Item Type:Article
