Over the past 15 years models with large extra space-time dimensions have been extensively studied. We have learned from these models that the energy scale of quantum gravity may be many orders of magnitude smaller than the conventional value of 10 19 GeV. This raises the tantalizing prospect of probing quantum gravity effects at the LHC. Of the possible quantum gravity processes at the LHC, the formation and subsequent evaporation of microscopic black holes is one of the most spectacular. We…

Vacuum Polarisation on Higher Dimensional Black Hole Spacetimes
We consider the vacuum polarisation of a quantum scalar �field on a black hole background. We introduce additional space-like dimensions and study the vacuum polarisation outside the event horizon.


Hawking radiation from rotating brane black holes
We review recent work on the Hawking radiation of rotating brane black holes, as may be produced at the LHC. We outline the methodology for calculating the fluxes of particles, energy and angular
Search for microscopic black holes in pp collisions at $ \sqrt{s}=8 $ TeV
A bstractA search for microscopic black holes and string balls is presented, based on a data sample of pp collisions at $ \sqrt{s}=8 $ TeV recorded by the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider
Universality, maximum radiation, and absorption in high-energy collisions of black holes with spin.
The scattering threshold becomes independent of spin at large center-of-mass energies, confirming previous conjectures that structure does not matter in ultrarelativistic collisions and suggesting that about half of the center- of-mass energy of the system can be emitted in gravitational radiation, while the rest must be converted into rest-mass and spin energy.

Radiation from a D-dimensional collision of shock waves: numerical methods
We present a pedagogical introduction to the problem of evolving a head on collision of two Aichelburg-Sexl gravitational shock waves in D-dimensions, using perturbative techniques. We follow a
