We have studied in detail the energetics of Kerr-Newman black hole by the Penrose process using charged particles. It turns out that the presence of electromagnetic field offers very favourable conditions for energy extraction by allowing for a region with enlarged negative energy states much beyondr = 2M, and higher negative values for energy. However, when uncharged particles are involved, the efficiency of the process (defined as the gain in energy/input energy) gets reduced by the presence… 
Particle dynamics around a dyonic charged black hole
Energy extraction from extremal charged black holes due to the Banados-Silk-West effect
Two particles can collide in the vicinity of a rotating black hole producing the divergent energy in the centre of mass frame (the BSW effect). However, it was shown recently that an observer at
Circular motion around a rotating black hole in quintessential dark energy
This paper investigates the circular motion of neutral test particles orbiting near Kerr–Newman black hole in the presence of quintessential dark energy and cosmological constant. We limit our
Penrose process for a charged black hole in a uniform magnetic field
Spinning black holes create electromagnetic storms when immersed in ambient magnetic fields, illuminating the otherwise epically dark terrain. In an electromagnetic extension of the Penrose process,
The Kerr-Newman Metric
This paper discusses the Kerr solution to the Einstein equations and its physical interpretation as a rotating black hole. We first discuss the singularities of the Kerr solution, and the
Effect of charge and deformation parameter on energy extraction in charged non-Kerr black holes
We analyze the charged Johannsen–Psaltis black hole for energy extraction via the Penrose process. Efficiency of the Penrose process is found to be dependent on the deformation parameter of the
Electric Penrose process: High-energy acceleration of ionized particles by nonrotating weakly charged black hole
In many astrophysical scenarios the charge of the black hole is often neglected due to unrealistically large values of the charge required for the Reissner-Nordström spacetime metric. However, black
The properties of the ergosphere and energy extraction by the Penrose process in a rotating non-Kerr black hole are investigated. It is shown that the ergosphere is sensitive to the deformation
Confined Penrose process and black-hole bomb
We consider decay of particle with some energy E 0 > 0 inside the ergosphere of a black hole. After the first decay one of particles with the energy E 1 < 0 falls towards a black hole while the second


Revival of the Penrose process for astrophysical applications
By utilizing the curious existence of negative energy orbits outside the event horizon of the Kerr black hole, Penrose proposed that rotational energy of the black hole can be extracted. It was
Global structure of the Kerr family of gravitational fields
The Kerr family of solutions of the Einstein and Einstein-Maxwell equations is the most general class of solutions known at present which could represent the field of a rotating neutral or
Accretion Discs in Astrophysics
If we put a particle in a circular orbit around a central gravitating body, it will stay in that orbit. If we then extract energy and angular momentum from the particle we may allow it to spiral
Runaway instability in accretion disks orbiting black holes
The runaway instability (very fast, ‘catastrophic’, mass exchange) operates in close binaries when the more massive star overflows its Roche lobe1,2. The Roche lobe radius shrinks due to the mass
Ion-supported tori and the origin of radio jets
While apparently supplying tremendous power to their extended radio-emitting regions, the nuclei of most radio galaxies emit little detectable radiation. It is proposed that at the centre of each is

Generalization of the ''Schwarzschild surface'' to arbitrary static and stationary metrics.
A generalization of the r = 2m ``Schwarzschild surface'' is defined for static metrics which are not necessarily spherically symmetric. This surface exhibits simultaneously the properties of being a

The concepts of irreducible mass and of reversible and irreversible transformations in black holes are introduced, leading to the formula
