In the context of the existence of primordial black holes (PBHs), they may compose a fraction of the dark matter of the Universe. Assuming that PBHs fill the dark content of the Milky Way Galaxy in the Galactic halo and the dark disc, we calculate the probability of collision of the PBHs with Earth. This collision has different consequences as heating the interior of the Earth through dynamical friction and accretion processes. In this work, we calculate the rate of collisions and a fraction… Expand

Near-Critical Gravitational Collapse and the Initial Mass Function of Primordial Black Holes
The recent discovery of critical phenomena arising in gravitational collapse near the threshold of black-hole formation is used to estimate the initial mass function of primordial black holes (PBHs).Expand
Black hole explosions?
QUANTUM gravitational effects are usually ignored in calculations of the formation and evolution of black holes. The justification for this is that the radius of curvature of space-time outside theExpand
Primordial Black Hole Scenario for the Gravitational-Wave Event GW150914.
The abundance of PBHs required to explain the suggested lower bound on the event rate roughly coincides with the existing upper limit set by the nondetection of the cosmic microwave background spectral distortion, which implies that the proposed PBH scenario may be tested in the not-too-distant future.

Microlensing and dynamical constraints on primordial black hole dark matter with an extended mass function
The recent discovery of gravitational waves from mergers of ∼10 M⊙ black hole binaries has stimulated interested in primordial black hole (PBH) dark matter in this mass range. Microlensing andExpand

A model of baryogenesis is described which gives rise to fluctuations in baryon number that are large on small scales but of low amplitude on large scales. This provides a mechanism for primordialExpand
Gravitational collapse and spacetime singularities
accompanied by a violent release of energy, possible in the form of gravitational radiation. The detailed mathematical discussion of such situations is difficult since the full complexity of generalExpand
Primordial black hole constraints for extended mass functions
We revisit the cosmological and astrophysical constraints on the fraction of the dark matter in primordial black holes (PBHs) with an extended mass function. We consider a variety of mass functions,Expand
Single Field Double Inflation and Primordial Black Holes
Within the framework of scalar-tensor theories, we study the conditions that allow single field inflation dynamics on small cosmological scales to significantly differ from that of the large scalesExpand
Reproducing GW150914: the first observation of gravitational waves from a binary black hole merger
This is the first direct detection of gravitational waves and the first observation of a binary black hole merger, and these observations demonstrate the existence of binary stellar-mass black hole systems. Expand
The approximate ratios between the diameters of terrestrial impact craters and the causative incident asteroids
When a large asteroid of diameter d hits the surface of the Earth, it produces a crater of diameter D. This paper uses the near-Earth asteroid (NEA) size and miss-distance statistics to calculate theExpand
