Assessing the stability of higher-dimensional rotating black holes requires a study of linearized gravitational perturbations around such backgrounds. We study perturbations of Myers-Perry black holes with equal angular momenta in an odd number of dimensions (greater than five), allowing for a cosmological constant. Such black exhibit enhanced symmetry: they are cohomogeneity-one solutions. This allows gravitational perturbations to be decomposed into scalar, vector and tensor types. The… CONTINUE READING
