Title: Superradiance in the String Axiverse

Abstract: This work uses state-of-the-art computational geometric tools to directly manipulate the topological information contained in the infamous Kreuzer-Skarke database to derive axion data for compactifications of Type IIB string theory, including systems at the maximal Hodge number, 491. We discuss the physics of these multiaxion models focussing, in particular, on the constraints derived from observed spinning black holes.
