We study the thermodynamics of four-dimensional Kerr-Newman-AdS black holes both in the canonical and the grand-canonical ensemble. The stability conditions are investigated, and the complete phase diagrams are obtained, which include the Hawking-Page phase transition in the grand-canonical ensemble. In the canonical case, one has a first-order transition between small and large black holes, which disappears for a sufficiently large electric charge or angular momentum. This disappearance…

The Thermodynamic potentials of Kerr - AdS black holes and their CFT duals

String or M-theory in the background of Kerr-AdS black holes is thought to be dual to the large N limit of certain conformal field theories on a rotating sphere at finite temperature. The five

The Thermodynamical Behaviors of Kerr—Newman AdS Black Holes

We reconsider the study of critical behaviors of Kerr—Newman Anti-de Sitter (AdS) black holes in four dimensions. The study is made in terms of the moduli space parameterized by the charge Q and the

Critical phenomena in the extended phase space of Kerr-Newman-AdS black holes

Treating the cosmological constant as a thermodynamic pressure, we investigate the critical behavior of a Kerr-Newman-AdS black hole system. The critical points for the van der Waals like phase

Reduced thermodynamics and an exact phase transition of five-dimensional Kerr-AdS black holes with equal spin parameters

We show that the near horizon regime of a Kerr–Newman AdS (KNAdS) black hole, given by its two-dimensional analogue a la Robinson and Wilczek (Phys. Rev. Lett.95, 011303 (2005)), is asymptotically

Thermodynamic geometry and phase transitions in Kerr-Newman-AdS black holes

We investigate phase transitions and critical phenomena in Kerr-Newman-Anti de Sitter black holes in the framework of the geometry of their equilibrium thermodynamic state space. The scalar curvature

Topology of black hole thermodynamics in Gauss-Bonnet gravity

Thermodynamics of black holes in anti de Sitter (AdS) spacetimes typically contains critical points in the phase diagram, some of which correspond to the first order transition ending in a second

On the thermodynamic geometry and critical phenomena of AdS black holes

In this paper, we study various aspects of the equilibrium thermodynamic state space geometry of AdS black holes. We first examine the Reissner-Nordstrom-AdS (RN-AdS) and the Kerr-AdS black holes. In

The physical properties of Reissner-Nordstrom black holes in (n11)-dimensional anti-de Sitter spacetime are related, by a holographic map, to the physics of a class of n-dimensional field theories

Phases of R-charged black holes, spinning branes and strongly coupled gauge theories

We study the thermodynamic stability of charged black holes in gauged supergravity theories in D = 5, D = 4 and D = 7. We find explicitly the location of the Hawking-Page phase transition between

Hamiltonian thermodynamics of the Reissner-Nordström-anti-de Sitter black hole.

The Hamiltonian dynamics and thermodynamics of spherically symmetric Einstein-Maxwell spacetimes with a negative cosmological constant are considered and the theory is reduced to its true dynamical degrees of freedom.

Rotation and the AdS/CFT correspondence

In asymptotically flat space a rotating black hole cannot be in thermodynamic equilibrium because the thermal radiation would have to be co-rotating faster than light far from the black hole. However
