Very few stationary multi-black hole solutions are known to exist. In this talk we will discuss the first examples of static binary black hole solutions in anti-de Sitter space. The attractive force between the black holes is balanced by the addition of a background electric field, sourced at the conformal boundary. I’ll briefly review how these solutions can be obtained numerically before addressing some of their properties, including how they satisfy a first law relationship. We’ll see that there is a continuous family of bulk solutions for a given boundary profile and temperature, suggesting there is continuous non-uniqueness of the black hole solutions. We’ll discuss how this non-uniqueness is particularly surprising and confusing in the light of the AdS/CFT correspondence.
