Counting black hole microstates in string theory using computational algebraic geometry

This paper develops techniques from computational algebraic geometry to count microstates of certain black holes in string theory. It focuses on a system of intersecting D-branes whose microstates are described by solutions to polynomial equations. The paper applies methods like Newton polytopes, homotopy continuation, monodromy, and Hilbert series to solve these equations and match the microstate counts with known results, extending the scope of previous work. Overall, it establishes these geometric techniques as valuable tools for probing black hole entropy in string theory.
