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 treatment of advanced topics/current research topics in black hole physics.

Inhalt der Lehrveranstaltung

  • Global structure of black holes: horizons and singularities
  • Dimensionally reduced black holes I: 2D gravity
  • Action principle and asymptotic boundaries
  • Dimensionally reduced black holes II: 3D gravity
  • Asymptotically Anti-de Sitter (AdS) spacetimes
  • BTZ black holes
  • Brown-Henneaux boundary conditions
  • Asymptotic symmetry algebras/Virasoro algebra
  • Holographic renormalization & Brown-York stress tensor
  • Black holes in AdS space & Hawking-Page transition
  • Gedankenexperiments and black hole thermodynamics
  • Hawking effect, black hole evaporation and information paradox
  • Quantum gravity
  • ... and possibly further selected recent research topics
