The four laws of black hole mechanics

- J. Bardeen, B. Carter, S. Hawking
- Physics
- 1 June 1973

Expressions are derived for the mass of a stationary axisymmetric solution of the Einstein equations containing a black hole surrounded by matter and for the difference in mass between two… Expand

Global structure of the Kerr family of gravitational fields

- B. Carter
- Physics
- 25 October 1968

The Kerr family of solutions of the Einstein and Einstein-Maxwell equations is the most general class of solutions known at present which could represent the field of a rotating neutral or… Expand

Hamilton-Jacobi and Schrodinger Separable Solutions of Einstein’s Equations

- B. Carter
- Mathematics
- 1 December 1968

This paper contains an investigation of spaces with a two parameter Abelian isometry group in which the Hamilton-Jacobi equation for the geodesies is soluble by separation of variables in such a way… Expand

The anthropic principle and its implications for biological evolution

- B. Carter
- Biology, MathematicsPhilosophical Transactions of the Royal Society…
- 20 December 1983

Axisymmetric Black Hole Has Only Two Degrees of Freedom

- B. Carter
- Physics
- 8 February 1971

A theorem is described which establishes the claim that in a certain canonical sense the Kerr metrics represent "the" (rather than merely "some possible") exterior fields of black holes with the… Expand

Large Number Coincidences and the Anthropic Principle in Cosmology

- B. Carter
- Physics
- 1974

Prof. Wheeler has asked me to say something for the record about some ideas that I once suggested (at the Clifford Memorial meeting in Princeton in 1970) and to which Hawking and Collins have… Expand

Killing Tensor Quantum Numbers and Conserved Currents in Curved Space

- B. Carter
- Physics
- 15 December 1977

The relationship between relativistic quantum current conservation laws in a curved-space background and the corresponding "good quantum numbers," i.e., operators that commute with the fundamental… Expand

Covariant theory of conductivity in ideal fluid or solid media

- B. Carter
- Physics
- 1989

After a preparatory account of the established theory of non-conducting perfect fluid media, with emphasis on the important but traditionally neglected concept of the 4-momentum 1-form associated… Expand

Foundations of general relativistic high-pressure elasticity theory

- B. Carter, H. Quintana
- PhysicsProceedings of the Royal Society of London. A…
- 21 November 1972

A fully relativistic formulation of the concept of a perfectly elastic solid is developed with a view to application to such problems as (a) the interaction of gravitational radiation with planetary… Expand
