### Abstract

In a recent paper it was shown that the properties of Schwarzschild black holes in 8 dimensions are correctly described up to factors of order unity by Matrix theory compactified on T^{3}. Here we consider compactifications on tori of general dimension d. Although in general little is known about the relevant d + 1 dimensional theories on the dual tori, there are hints from their application to near-extreme parallel Dirichlet d-branes. Using these hints we get the correct mass-entropy scaling for Schwarzschild black holes in (11 - d) dimensions.
