I review the classical and quantum properties of the (2 + 1)-dimensional black hole of Banados, Teitelboim and Zanelli. This solution of the Einstein field equations in three spacetime dimensions shares many of the characteristics of the Kerr black hole: it has an event horizon, an inner horizon, and an ergosphere; it occurs as an endpoint of gravitational collapse; it exhibits mass inflation; and it has a non-vanishing Hawking temperature and interesting thermodynamic properties. At the same…

Dynamical Black Holes in 2+1 Dimensions

We investigate the global structure of a recently discovered simple exact, non-stationary solution of topologically massive and new massive gravity with the asymptotic charges of an undeformed BTZ

Asymptotic charged BTZ black hole solutions

The well-known (2 + 1)-dimensional Reissner-Nordström (BTZ) black hole can be generalized to three dimensional Einstein-nonlinear electromagnetic field, motivated from obtaining a finite value for

The First Law of Thermodynamics of the (2+1)-Dimensional Banados--Teitelboim--Zanelli Black Holes and Kerr--de Sitter Spacetimes

We investigate the first law of thermodynamics in the case of the (2+1)-dimensional Banados–Teitelboim–Zanelli black holes and Kerr–de Sitter spacetimes. In particular, we focus on the integral mass

Hawking radiation from covariant anomalies in (2+1)-dimensional black holes

In an insightful approach, Robinson and Wilczek proposed that Hawking radiation can be obtained as the compensation of a breakdown of general covariance and gauge invariance and the radiation is a

Conformal field theory, (2 + 1)-dimensional gravity and the BTZ black hole

In three spacetime dimensions, general relativity becomes a topological field theory, whose dynamics can be largely described holographically by a two-dimensional conformal field theory at the

Classical and quantum analysis of an Einstein-Scalar solution in 2 + 1 dimensions

Abstract.The classical and quantum properties of a new solution obtained in (2 + 1) -dimensional gravity coupled with a real scalar field is analyzed in detail. The considered new solution is a

Thermodynamics of ( 2+1 )-dimensional Coulomb-like black holes from nonlinear electrodynamics with a traceless energy momentum tensor

In this work we study thermodynamics of 2+1-dimensional static black holes with a nonlinear electric field. Besides employing the standard thermodynamic approach, we investigate the black hole

A New Class of Stable (2+1) Dimensional Thin Shell Wormhole

Few years ago, Bañados, Teitelboim and Zanelli (BTZ) (in Phys. Rev. Lett. 69:1849 (1992)) has discovered an explicit vacuum solution of (2+1)-dimensional gravity with negative cosmological constant.

Geometrical and hydrodynamic aspects of five-dimensional Schwarzschild black hole

Exploiting the five-dimensional Schwarzschild black hole, we study the geometrical natures of higher-dimensional black holes to yield the (6+1)-dimensional global embedding Minkowski space structure.

Negative spectrum of the 2 + 1 black hole

In (2+1)-dimensional gravity with negative cosmological constant, the states in the negative energy range, between anti-de Sitter (AdS) (M=-1) and the so-called Banados-Teitelboim-Zanelli black hole



Black hole in three-dimensional spacetime.

The standard Einstein-Maxwell equations in 2+1 spacetime dimensions, with a negative cosmological constant, admit a black hole solution that appears as a negative energy state separated by a mass gap from the continuous black hole spectrum.

Gauge formulation of the spinning black hole in (2+1)-dimensional anti-de Sitter space.

We compute the group element of SO(2,2) associated with the spinning black hole found by Ba\~nados, Teitelboim, and Zanelli in (2+1)-dimensional anti-de Sitter space-time. We show that their metric

Supersymmetry of the (2+1)-dimensional black holes.

It is argued that the zero-mass hole is the ground state of (1,1) adS supergravity with periodic (``Ramond'') boundary conditions on the spinor fields.

Aspects of black hole quantum mechanics and thermodynamics in 2+1 dimensions.

It is shown that the dynamical variables of the black hole arise from the possibility of a deficit angle at the (Euclidean) horizon, and briefly speculate as to how they may provide a basis for a statistical picture of black hole thermodynamics.

Black holes in three-dimensional topological gravity.

It is found that the theory with topological matter reverses the identification of energy and angular momentum with the parameters in the metric, compared with general relativity, and that the entropy is determined by the circumference of the inner rather than the outer horizon.

Horizon quantization and thermodynamics of the 2+1 black hole

We test on the 2+1 dimensional black hole the quantization method that we have previously proposed in four dimensions. While in the latter case the horizon dynamics is described, at the effective

By calculating the response function, we study the Hawking radiation of massless Dirac fields in the (2+1)-dimensional black hole geometry. We find that the response function has Planck

Lectures in (2+1)-Dimensional Gravity

These lectures briefly review our current understanding of classical and quantum gravity in three spacetime dimensions, concentrating on the quantum mechanics of closed universes and the

Geometry of the 2+1 black hole.

The geometry of the spinning black holes of standard Einstein theory in 2+1 dimensions, with a negative cosmological constant, and without couplings to matter, is analyzed in detail. It is shown that

The validity of the classical laws of horizon mechanics is verified in general and exemplified for the (2+1)-dimensional analogues of Reissner-Nordstroem and Schwarzschild--de Sitter spacetimes, and the entropy is given by 1/4{ital L}, where {ital L} is the length of the horizon.
