We derive the rotating black hole metric by appealing to ellipsoidal symmetry of space and a general guiding principle of incorporation of the Newtonian acceleration for massive and no acceleration for massless particles. 

Novel way to the metric of higher dimensional rotating black holes

We wish to carry forward to higher dimensions the insightful and novel method of obtaining the Kerr metric proposed by one of us [Gen. Relativ. Gravit. 45, 2383 (2013)] for deriving the Myers-Perry

Rotating black hole in Einstein and pure Lovelock gravity

We obtain rotating black hole metric for higher dimensional Einstein and pure Lovelock gravity by employing two independent and well motivated methods. One is based on the principle of incorporation

How do rotating black holes form in higher dimensions?

Black holes are generally formed by gravitational collapse and accretion process. The necessary condition for the process to work is that overall force on collapsing/accreting matter element must be

Energetics and optical properties of 6-dimensional rotating black hole in pure Gauss–Bonnet gravity

We study physical processes around a rotating black hole in pure Gauss–Bonnet (GB) gravity. In pure GB gravity, the gravitational potential has a slower fall-off as compared to the corresponding

A New Rotating Metric that Generalizes the Yilmaz Exponential Metric

Using a technique due to Dadhich, we derive an ellipsoidally symmetric rotating metric which reduces to the Yilmaz exponential metric when the rotation parameter is set to zero. Like the Kerr metric,

Newtonian wormholes

A wormhole solution in Newtonian gravitation, enhanced through an equation relating the Ricci scalar to the mass density, is presented. The wormhole inhabits a spherically symmetric curved space,

The Kerr metric

This review describes the events leading up to the discovery of the Kerr metric in 1963 and the enormous impact the discovery has had in the subsequent 50 years. The review discusses the Penrose

Thermal radiation in curved spacetime using influence functional formalism

Generalizing to relativistic exponential scaling and using the theory of noise from quantum fluctuations, it has been shown that one vacuum (Rindler, Hartle-Hawking, or Gibbons-Hawking for the cases

Schwarzschild and Kerr Solutions of Einstein's Field Equation -- an introduction

Starting from Newton's gravitational theory, we give a general introduction into the spherically symmetric solution of Einstein's vacuum field equation, the Schwarzschild(–Droste) solution, and into

Einstein Gravity and Beyond: Aspects of Higher-Curvature Gravity and Black Holes

This thesis explores the different aspects of higher curvature gravity. The "membrane paradigm" of black holes in Einstein gravity is extended to black holes in f(R) gravity and it is shown that the



Gravitational field of a global monopole.

The monopole exerts practically no gravitational force on nonrelativistic matter, but the space around it has a deficit solid angle, and all light rays are deflected by the same angle, independent of the impact parameter.

Subtle is the Gravity

In this lecture I build up the motivation for relativity and gravitation based on general principles and common sense considerations which should fall in the sphere of appreciation of a general

Effective mass of a rotating black hole in a magnetic field

The authors have given a definition of the effective mass of the Kerr black hole that incorporates a contribution due to rotation as well as agreeing with the Komar integral asymptotically. They

Characterization of the Lovelock gravity by Bianchi derivative

We prove the theorem: The second-order quasilinear differential operator as a second-rank divergence-free tensor in the equation of motion for gravitation could always be derived from the trace of

Why Einstein (Had I been born in 1844

In his monumental discoveries, the driving force for Einstein was, I believe, consistency of concept and principle rather than conflict with experiment. In this spirit, I would like to look at the
