'For years, black holes have caught the public's imagination - quite rightly so, for they are extraordinary objects. Now Martin Rees and Mitchell Begelman have provided us with a dramatic, elegant, and fully authoritative account of these remarkable structures, and of how they fit into our modern picture of the universe.' - Roger Penrose With superb illustrations and photographs, Mitchell Begelman and Martin Rees, the Astronomer Royal, describe how black holes were found and what their… 
Black Holes : A General Introduction
Our understanding of space and time is probed to its depths by black holes. These objects, which appear as a natural consequence of general relativity, provide a powerful analytical tool able to
Black Holes in the Universe
Some 30 years ago very few scientists thought that black holes may really exist. Attention focussed on the black hole hypothesis after neutron stars had been discovered. It was rather surprising that
ON THE SOLUTION TO THE "FROZEN STAR" PARADOX, NATURE OF ASTROPHYSICAL BLACK HOLES, NON-EXISTENCE OF GRAVITATIONAL SINGULARITY IN THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE AND APPLICABILITY OF THE BIRKHOFF'S THEOREM
Oppenheimer and Snyder found in 1939 that gravitational collapse in vacuum produces a "frozen star", i.e. the collapsing matter only asymptotically approaches the gravitational radius (event horizon)
Elementary Cosmology: From Aristotle's Universe to the Big Bang and Beyond
Cosmology is the study of the origin, size, and evolution of the entire universe. Every culture has developed a cosmology, whether it be based on religious, philosophical, or scientific principles.

100 Years of General Relativity
This chapter aims to provide a broad historical overview of the major developments in General Relativity Theory (‘GR’) after the theory had been developed in its final form. It will not relate the
Observe matter falling into a black hole
It has been well known that in the point of view of a distant observer, all in‐falling matter to a black hole (BH) will be eventually stalled and “frozen” just outside the event horizon of the BH,
Astrophysical black holes may radiate, but they do not evaporate
This paper argues that the effect of Hawking radiation on an astrophysical black hole situated in a realistic cosmological context is not total evaporation of the black hole; rather there will always
Shapes and Positions of Black Hole Shadows in Accretion Disks and Spin Parameters of Black Holes
Can we determine the spin parameter of a black hole by observing the black hole's shadow on an accretion disk? To answer this question, we make qualitative and quantitative analyses of the shape and
