Abstract: This is the first of a series of papers dealing with the representation theory of artin algebras, where by an artin algebra we mean an artin ring having the property that its center is an artin ring and λ is a finitely generated module over its center. The over all purpose of this paper is to develop terminology and background material which will be used in the rest of the papers in the series. While it is undoubtedly true that much of this material can be found in the literature or easily deduced from results already in the literature, the particular development presented here appears to be new and is especially well suited as a foundation for the papers to come.

TL;DR: The vacuum Einstein equations in five dimensions are shown to admit a solution describing a stationary asymptotically flat spacetime regular on and outside an event horizon of topology S1xS2, which describes a rotating "black ring".
Abstract: The vacuum Einstein equations in five dimensions are shown to admit a solution describing a stationary asymptotically flat spacetime regular on and outside an event horizon of topology ${S}^{1}\ifmmode\times\else\texttimes\fi{}{S}^{2}$. It describes a rotating ``black ring.'' This is the first example of a stationary asymptotically flat vacuum solution with an event horizon of nonspherical topology. The existence of this solution implies that the uniqueness theorems valid in four dimensions do not have simple five-dimensional generalizations. It is suggested that increasing the spin of a spherical black hole beyond a critical value results in a transition to a black ring, which can have an arbitrarily large angular momentum for a given mass.
