Black Hole Bombs Black hole in a mirror box [Zel’dovich 1971; Press, Teukolsky 1972; Cardoso, Dias, Lemos, Yoshida 2004] If a rotating black hole is put inside a box with reflective boundary, superradiance provokes infinite growth of massless bosonic field inside the box.

What Is Axion? Originally, a psued-Goldstone boson for the Peccei-Quinn chiral symmetry to resolve the strong CP problem. CP problem in QCD – Winding number and topological vacuum – Instanton – Theta vacuum and CP violation a q
Peccei-Quinn symmetry – L Y = -h(R * * L + cc) is invariant under the chiral trf – Due to the chiral anomaly, this trf shifts : (r=2) – When the SU(2)xU(1) symmetry is spontaneous broken, if we put 0 by the PQ transformation, this term becomes – Thus, CP is still violated in general. – Theory has a shift symmetry + in the tree level.
Non-perturbative effect. – In vacuum, the SU(2) chiral symmetry for (u,d) is explicitly broken by non-perturbative effects: – This chiral symmetry produces a potential for axion and violate where f a is the scale of PQ symmetry breaking. – Thus, the shift symmetry of the axion is broken, and CP invariance is dynamically restored: Axion interactions – Fermions: – Gauge fields:
Basic features of the invisible QCD axion – Weak coupling (chiral) : g aq ¼ m q /f a ; f a & 10 8 GeV – Small mass by the QCD instaton effect: m a ¼ 10 -3 eV (10 10 GeV/ f a ) – Dark matter candidate a. 0.01 (f a /10 10 GeV) 1.175 – Coupling to gauge fields via anomaly: g a F Æ F General Definition (ALP) – A pseudo scalar with tree-level shift symmetry and P/CP violation a q
Form Fields in HUnTs Form fields have gauge invariance and Chern-Simons couplings: – M-theory : G 4 =dC 3 This action is invariant under the gauge transformation – 10D SST (NS sector): H 3 =dB 2 d B 2 =d l For type II theories, For the Heterotic/type I theories, H 3 should be modified as for anomaly cancelation. The Chern-Simons term breaks C and CP.
– 10D SST (type II) RR fields In the democratic formulation, in terms of the polyforms C= p C p and G= p G p, we have and the action In contrast to its appearance, P and CP are violated in this sector because the duality condition should be imposed on the flux in the field equations: After compactification, these form fields produce axionic fields that violate P and CP.
Coupling to Gauge Fields Shift symmetry ) Axion Model-independent axion – B 2 field in 4D spacetime: – The invariance under the gauge transformation B= d ¸ guarantees the shift symmetry. – The coupling of B 2 to gauge fields can be derived from the anomaly cancelation condition Svrcek P, Witten E: Axions in string theory, JEHP06 (2006) 051:
Model-dependent axions – B 2 field and C p fields in the internal space: b = s B 2, c = s C p – The coupling of b to gauge fields can be derived from the Green-Schwarz counter-term – The coupling of c to gauge fields comes from the D- brane Chern-Simons term Svrcek P, Witten E: Axions in string theory, JEHP06 (2006) 051:
Stringy Axion Mass If the shift symmetry is not violated at the tree level by flux, branes and compactification (i.e., by moduli stabilisation), it can be preserved by perturbative quantum corrections (for supersymmetric states). Then, axions acquire mass only by non-perturbative effects (possibly associated with SUSY breaking), such as instanton effects as in the case of the QCD axion. If a light QCD axion really exists, it is natural that there survive lots of other light axions coming from the large number of non-trivial cycles in extra-dimensions, which can be order of several hundreds or more to allow for the tuning of the cosmological constant. Thus, it is expected that there are lots of superlight axions whose mass spectrum is homogeneous in log m, producing the axiverse.

From the relations We have f a » m pl /S. Hence, If we require that this stringy effect is less than the QCD instanton effect for the QCD axion, we
Superradiance Instability The growth rate becomes maximum at g = R g » 1 (R g =GM). Instability occurs for gravitational bound states with where n is a positive integer such that n>l. In general, for the most unstable mode Hence, the mode is peaked outside the ergo region and far from the horizon: This implies that states are quantum for near extremal cases.

Rotation of the CMB Polarisation Let us consider axionic fields that couple to the EM field, but not to the QCD sector. – This requirement can be realised in some orbifold SU(5) GUT models in 5D braneworld. – It is expected that there are only a few such fields: most axionic fields are localised on cycles that do not intersect our brane.

The rotation angle of the CMB polarisation is given by if 1/m is larger than the width of the last scattering surface t ls ' 10kpc.

Subtle points – The evolution equation for the left-polarisation mode becomes singular at horizon crossing. – The final result appears to be sensitive to the initial condition for quantum gravitational fluctuatutions during inflation.

Summary Super-light axions as legacy of the string theory can produce quite rich cosmophysical phenomena. Future observational confirmation of these phenomena can provide valuable information on the hidden extra-dimensions and the ultimate theory behind them, complimentary to the inflation probe. Most of such cosmophysical phenomena have not been explored fully yet and can become a fruitful new research field, axion cosmophysics.
