Black holes are one of the most intriguing objects of modern science. They were predicted by General Relativity, the theory Albert Einstein finished formulating in 1915. The first paper on black
A Black-Hole Primer: Particles, Waves, Critical Phenomena and Superradiant Instabilities
These notes were prepared for a lecture on black holes delivered at the DPG Physics School "General Relativity @ 99" (Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany, September 2014). The common thread of the
Black Hole Solutions and Pair Creation of Black Holes in Three, Four and Higher Dimensional Spacetimes
Black holes, first found as solutions of Einstein's General Relativity, are important in astrophysics, since they result from the gravitational collapse of a massive star or a cluster of stars, and
Regular black holes: Electrically charged solutions, Reissner-Nordstr\'om outside a de Sitter core
To have the correct picture of a black hole as a whole, it is of crucial importance to understand its interior. The singularities that lurk inside the horizon of the usual Kerr-Newman family of black
Quasinormal Modes and Gravitational Radiation in Black Hole Spacetimes
Black holes play a fundamental role in modern physics. They have characteristic oscillation modes, called quasinormal modes. Past studies have shown that these modes are important to our
The Interior of Black Holes and their Astrophysics
Gravity warps space and time into a funnel and generates a black hole when a cosmic body undergoes a catastrophic collapse. What can one say about the interior of a black hole? The important point is
Developments in General Relativity:. Black Hole Singularity and Beyond
At the 20-th Texas Symposium on Relativistic Astrophysics there was a plenary talk devoted to the recent developments in classical Relativity. In that talk the problems of gravitational collapse,
Probing the Purely Ingoing Nature of the Black-hole Event Horizon.
One of the most fundamental results of general relativity is that the event horizon of black hole is purely ingoing. On the other hand, semiclassical-gravity effects, such as particle creation and
Anomalies, Hawking radiations, and regularity in rotating black holes
This is an extended version of our previous letter [S. Iso, H. Umetsu, and F. Wilczek, Phys. Rev. Lett. 96, 151302 (2006).]. In this paper we consider rotating black holes and show that the flux of
Gravitational Capture of Binary Black Holes in Parabolic Orbit
Materials and Methods To simulate binary black holes and to calculate Einstein’s Field Equations, the following materials were used:  Einstein Toolkit: simulating and analyzing general relativistic
