# Angular momentum at the black hole threshold

@article{Gundlach1998AngularMA, title={Angular momentum at the black hole threshold}, author={Carsten Gundlach}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={1998}, volume={57}, pages={7080-7083} }

Near the black hole threshold in phase space, the black hole mass as a function of the initial data shows the “critical scaling” M?C(p-p*)?, where p labels a family of initial data, p* is the value of p at the threshold, and the critical exponent ? is universal for a given matter model. The black hole charge Q obeys a similar law. To complete the picture, we include the angular momentum as a perturbation. For the black hole angular momentum L?, we find the oscillating behavior L??Re[(A?+iB?)(p…

### Critical Phenomena in Gravitational Collapse

- PhysicsLiving reviews in relativity
- 2007

Critical phenomena give a natural route from smooth initial data to arbitrarily large curvatures visible from infinity, and are therefore likely to be relevant for cosmic censorship, quantum gravity, astrophysics, and the general understanding of the dynamics of general relativity.
