Black hole thermodynamics, confined to the semi-classical regime, cannot address the thermodynamic stability of a black hole in flat space. Here we show that inclusion of a correction beyond the semi-classical approximation makes a black hole thermodynamically stable. This stability is reached through a phase transition. By using Ehrenfest’s scheme we further prove that this is a glassy phase transition with a Prigogine–Defay ratio close to 3. This value is well within the desired bound (2 to 5… 
A unified picture of phase transition: from liquid-vapour systems to AdS black holes
A bstractBased on fundamental concepts of thermodynamics we examine phase transitions in black holes defined in Anti-de Sitter (AdS) spaces. The method is in line with that used a long ago to
Thermodynamics of phase transition in higher dimensional AdS black holes
We investigate the thermodynamics of phase transition for (n + 1) dimensional Reissner Nordstrom (RN)-AdS black holes using a grand canonical ensemble. This phase transition is characterized by a
Thermodynamics and Phase Transition from Regular Bardeen Black Hole Surrounded by Quintessence
In this paper, thermodynamics and phase transition are investigated for the regular Bardeen black hole surrounded by quintessence. Considering the metric of the Bardeen spacetime surrounded by
A New Phase Transition and Thermodynamic Geometry of Kerr-AdS Black Hole
We discover a new type of phase transition in Kerr AdS black hole where the first Ehrenfest’s equation is satisfied and the second one is violated. Thus it is neither a first order nor a simple
In this paper, we investigate the phase transition of Bardeen black hole for the first time. First, we calculate thermodynamic quantities and correct the misuse of formula in former literature.
On phase transition behaviors of Kerr–Sen black hole
We investigate phase transitions and critical behaviors of the Kerr-Sen black hole in four dimensions. Computing the involved thermodynamical quantities including the specific heat and using the
Phase transition and critical phenomenon of AdS black holes in Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity
Thermodynamics of phase transition for a black hole in 5D Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity with a negative cosmological constant is studied. As the Bekenstein-Hawking entropy is adopted, we find the
Phase transition in black holes
The present thesis is devoted towards the study of various aspects of the phase transition phenomena occurring in black holes defined in an Anti-de-Sitter (AdS) space. Based on the fundamental


Thermodynamics and phase transitions in the Born-Infeld-anti-de Sitter black holes
We investigate the Born-Infeld\char21{}anti\char21{}de Sitter (BIAdS) black hole solutions in the four dimensions, which is a nonlinear generalization of the Reissner-Norstr\"om-AdS (RNAdS) black
Higher Order Corrections to Black Hole Entropy
A scheme for calculating corrections to all orders to the entropy of any thermodynamic system due to statistical fluctuations around equilibrium has been developed. It is then applied to the BTZ
Generalized second law of thermodynamics in black-hole physics
In previous work we introduced the concept of black-hole entropy, which we identified with the surface area of the black hole in question expressed in units of the Planck length squared. We suggested
Models of the glass transition
The different physical aspects of glass transitions are reviewed and models aiming at their explanation are described. The following three main aspects are distinguished: the degree of stability of
Quantum Tunneling, Blackbody Spectrum and Non-Logarithmic Entropy Correction for Lovelock Black Holes
We show, using the tunneling method, that Lovelock black holes Hawking radiate with a perfect blackbody spectrum. This is a new result. Within the semiclassical (WKB) approximation the temperature of
Black Holes and Entropy
There are a number of similarities between black-hole physics and thermodynamics. Most striking is the similarity in the behaviors of black-hole area and of entropy: Both quantities tend to increase
Thermodynamics of black holes in anti-de Sitter space
The Einstein equations with a negative cosmological constant admit black hole solutions which are asymptotic to anti-de Sitter space. Like black holes in asymptotically flat space, these solutions
