# Black Holes at the LHC

@article{Kanti2008BlackHA, title={Black Holes at the LHC}, author={Panagiota Kanti}, journal={Lecture Notes in Physics}, year={2008}, volume={769}, pages={387-423} }

In these two lectures, we will address the topic of the creation of small black holes during particle collisions in a ground-based accelerator, such as LHC, in the context of a higher-dimensional theory. We will cover the main assumptions, criteria and estimates for their creation, and we will discuss their properties after their formation. The most important observable effect associated with their creation is likely to be the emission of Hawking radiation during their evaporation process… Expand

Rotating black holes at future colliders. III. Determination of black hole evolution

- Physics
- 2006

TeV scale gravity scenario predicts that the black hole production dominates over all other interactions above the scale and that the Large Hadron Collider will be a black hole factory. Such… Expand

Absence of black holes at LHC due to gravity's rainbow

Creating semiclassical black holes in collider experiments and keeping them on a string

- Physics
- 2008

We argue that a simple modification of the TeV scale quantum gravity scenario allows production of semiclassical black holes in particle collisions at the LHC. The key idea is that in models with… Expand

Extra dimensions and micro black holes at the LHC

In this thesis, aspects of the physics of black holes are reviewed and new results in black hole thermodynamics are presented. First, general black hole solutions of Einstein’s equations of general… Expand

Angular profile of emission of non-zero spin fields from a higher-dimensional black hole

- Physics
- 2009

Recent works have included the effect of rotation on simulations of black hole events at the LHC, showing that the angular momentum of the black hole cannot be ignored and it makes a non-trivial… Expand

Quantum Black Holes at the LHC. Production and decay mechanisms of non-thermal microscopic black holes in particle collisions

- Physics
- 2014

The scale of quantum gravity could be as low as a few TeV in the existence of extra spatial dimensions or if the Planck scale runs fast due to a large number of particles in a hidden sector. One of… Expand

I am writing with a simple plea to balance the voluminous articles about treatment in your journal with a modicum of information about nature and caring effects to rekindle the perception of physicians as healers, not only treaters, who relish the gifts of nature, and foster the humanistic aspect of medicine that has thrived for millennia.
