Abstract

Four-dimensional N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory, at a point on the Coulomb branch where SU(N) gauge symmetry is spontaneously broken to SU(N − 1) × U(1), admits BPS solitons describing a spherical shell of electric and/or magnetic charges enclosing a region of unbroken gauge symmetry. These solitons have been proposed as gauge theory models for certain features of asymptotically flat extremal black holes. In the ’t Hooft large N limit with large ’t Hooft coupling, these solitons are holographically dual to certain probe D3-branes in the AdS5 × S5 solution of type IIB supergravity. By studying linearised perturbations of these D3-branes, we show that the solitons support quasinormal modes with a spectrum of frequencies sharing both qualitative and quantitative features with asymptotically flat extremal black holes.
