Abstract

We study a stationary "black" brane in M/superstring theory. Assuming BPS-type relations between the first-order derivatives of metric functions, we present general stationary black brane solutions with a traveling wave for the Einstein equations in D-dimensions. The solutions are given by a few independent harmonic equations (and plus the Poisson equation). General solutions are constructed by superposition of a complete set of those harmonic functions. We prove that the solutions preserve the 1/8 supersymmetry if the gravi-electromagnetic field ℱij, which is a rotational part of gravity, is self-dual.
