Black holes and black branes in Lifshitz spacetimes

We present analytic solutions describing black holes and black branes in
asymptotically Lifshitz spacetimes with arbitrary dynamical exponent z and
for arbitrary number of dimensions. The model considered consists of
Einstein gravity with negative cosmological constant, a scalar, and N U(1)
gauge fields with dilatonic-like couplings. We study the phase diagrams and
thermodynamic instabilities of the solution, and find qualitative
differences between the cases with 1<z<2, z=2 and z>2.
