Ziele der Lehrveranstaltung

Black holes have advanced to the forefront of current research in various disciplines: besides the obvious ones, general relativity, mathematical physics and astrophysics, also string theory, quantum chromodynamics, cosmology, computational physics, quantum gravity and even part of condensed matter physics devote a signi cant fraction of their resources to the study of black holes. It is thus both a fascinating and timely subject to investigate. The main purpose of this lecture is a comprehensive introduction to black hole physics.

S. Carroll Spacetime and Geometry: An Introduction to General Relativity

Further literature will be mentioned during the first lecture on October 10.


good knowledge of special relativity is required basic knowledge of general relativity is helpful, but not required no prior knowledge of astrophysics, particle physics or cosmology is required
