    Abstract

    In this paper we study the classical dynamics of long strings in AdS3, generalizing our previous study, arXiv:1410.3424, to rotating strings and BTZ black holes. As in the nonrotating case, BTZ black holes are generated in the large tension limit, in which string backreaction must be taken into account. When backreaction is properly accounted for, collapsing heavy, physical, rotating strings do not generate naked singularities but only BTZ black holes, including extremal ones. The rotating string must contain world-sheet excitations in order to have consistent equations of motion; we describe such additional degrees of freedom implicitly in terms of an effective equation of state.
