Abstract

Certain nonasymptotically flat but supersymmetric classical solutions of type IIA supergravity can be interpreted as the infinitely boosted version of the (Formula presented) particle solution along the (Formula presented)-theory circle. By a chain of (Formula presented)-dual transformations, this analysis also applies to yield nonasymptotically flat solutions from the asymptotically flat and (non)extremal solutions with intersecting (Formula presented) strings and (Formula presented) five-branes of type IIB supergravity compactified on a five-torus. Under (Formula presented) duality, the nonasymptotically flat solutions in this context can in particular be used to describe the (1+1)-dimensional Callan-Giddings-Harvey-Strominger type black holes via spontaneous compactifications.
