Aim of course

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.

Subject of course

  • Black hole definition, causal structure and Penrose diagrams
  • Raychaudhuri equations and singularity theorems
  • Gravitational waves and black hole mergers
  • Black hole perturbations and quasi-normal modes
  • Black hole thermodynamics
  • Hawking effect
  • Action principle and boundary issues
  • Holographic renormalization and Brown-York stress tensor
  • Asymptotic symmetries
  • Black holes in AdS
  • ... and possibly further selected recent research topics
