The question of whether the collider production of subnuclear black holes might constitute a catastrophic risk is explored in a model of Casadio & Harms (2002) that treats them as quantum mechanical objects. A plausible scenario in which these black holes accrete ambient matter at the Eddington limit shortly after their production, thereby emitting Hawking radiation that would be harmful to Earth and/or CERN and its surroundings, is described. Such black holes are shown to remain undetectable… 
A Critical Review of Safety Papers Concerning Black Holes at the LHC
_______ By reviewing the different alternative categories of behavior outlined within physics papers for very small black holes that are thought could emerge from the LHC, I consider that in only the
Micro Black Holes - Hypothetical Terrestrial Flux and a Re-Visitation of Astrophysical Safety Assurances
Although studies into the relation between the effects of hypothetical stable TeV-scale black holes produced in particle colliders relative to those which may be produced in nature due to cosmic ray
Theoretical survey of tidal-charged black holes at the LHC
We analyse a family of brane-world black holes which solve the effective four-dimensional Einstein equations for a wide range of parameters related to the unknown bulk/brane physics. We first
Possibility of catastrophic black hole growth in the warped brane-world scenario at the LHC
In this paper, we present the results of our analysis of the growth and decay of black holes possibly produced at the Large Hadron Collider, based on our previous study of black holes in the context
Production of tidal-charged black holes at the Large Hadron Collider
Tidal-charged black hole solutions localized on a three-brane in the five-dimensional gravity scenario of Randall and Sundrum have been known for some time. The solutions have been used to study the
Effect of brane thickness on microscopic tidal-charged black holes
We study the phenomenological implications stemming from the dependence of the tidal charge on the brane thickness L for the evaporation and decay of microscopic black holes. In general, the larger
Comments on claimed risk from metastable black holes
In a recent note, arXiv:0808.1415, it was argued that a hypothetical metastable black hole scenario could pose collider risk not excluded by our previous study. We comment on inconsistency of this
The decay-time of non-commutative micro-black holes
Non-commutative black holes are characterised by a minimum mass which would result in a remnant after the Hawking evaporation ends. We numerically study the decay of neutral non-commutative black
