We investigate possible signatures of black hole events at the LHC in the hypothesis that such objects will not evaporate completely, but leave a stable remnant. For the purpose of defining a reference scenario, we have employed the publicly available Monte Carlo generator CHARYBDIS2, in which the remnant’s behavior is mostly determined by kinematic constraints and conservation of some quantum numbers, such as the baryon number. Our findings show that electrically neutral remnants are highly…

Charged black hole remnants at the LHC
We investigate possible signatures of long-lived (or stable) charged black holes at the Large Hadron Collider. In particular, we find that black hole remnants are characterised by quite low speed.
Search for the Mini Black Hole in the Multijet Final State in pp Collisions at √ s = 7 TeV
A mini black hole search is motivated by theories of extra dimensions. ADD model is one of extra dimensions theories in which all extra dimensions are compactified in cylinder shape. In the model,
MicroBlack Holes Thermodynamics in the Presence of Quantum Gravity Effects
Black hole thermodynamics is corrected in the presence of quantum gravity effects. Some phenomenological aspects of quantum gravity proposal can be addressed through generalized uncertainty principle
Minimum black hole mass from colliding Gaussian packets
We study the formation of a black hole in the collision of two Gaussian packets. Rather than following their dynamical evolution in detail, we assume a horizon forms when the mass function for the
Regular black hole remnants and graviatoms with de Sitter interior as heavy dark matter candidates probing inhomogeneity of early universe
We address the question of regular primordial black holes with de Sitter interior, their remnants and gravitational vacuum solitons G-lumps as heavy dark matter candidates providing signatures for
Ultraviolet improved black holes
In this thesis, Planck size black holes are discussed. Specifically, new families of black holes are presented. Such black holes exhibit an improved short scale behaviour and can be used to implement

The Monte Carlo event generator implements a model for quantum black hole production and decay based on the conservation of local gauge symmetries and democratic decays and interfaces to the PYTHIA 8 Monte Carlo code for fragmentation and decays.
Microcanonical Description of (Micro) Black Holes
The microcanonical approach can provide a consistent description of black holes and their Hawking radiation at all energy scales and is particularly relevant for the analysis of micro-black holes whose existence is predicted in models with extra-spatial dimensions.
Self-completeness and the generalized uncertainty principle
A bstractThe generalized uncertainty principle discloses a self-complete characteristic of gravity, namely the possibility of masking any curvature singularity behind an event horizon as a result of


Black Hole Remnants at the LHC
Within the scenario of large extra dimensions, the Planck scale is lowered to values soon accessible. Among the predicted effects, the production of TeV mass black holes at the LHC is one of the most
Black holes at the Large Hadron Collider.
The very successful 2010–2012 operation of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has changed the landscape of particle physics. The long-awaited Higgs boson has been discovered, and—yet—there are no signs
Black Hole Production at Future Colliders
If the scale of quantum gravity is near TeV, the CERN Large Hadron Collider will be producing one black hole (BH) about every second. The decays of the BHs into the final states with prompt, hard
News about TeV-scale black holes

We study possible back-reaction and quantum gravity effects in the evaporation of black holes which could be produced at the LHC through a modification of the Hawking emission. The corrections are

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