In a (2+1)-dimensional spacetime with a negative cosmological constant, the thermodynamics and the entropy of an extremal rotating thin shell, i.e., an extremal rotating ring, are investigated. The outer and inner regions are taken to be the Ba\~{n}ados-Teitelbom-Zanelli (BTZ) spacetime and the vacuum ground state anti-de Sitter (AdS) spacetime, respectively. By applying the first law of thermodynamics to the extremal shell one shows that its entropy is an arbitrary function of the…

Unified approach to the entropy of an extremal rotating BTZ black hole: Thin shells and horizon limits

Using a thin shell, the first law of thermodynamics, and a unified approach, we study the thermodymanics and find the entropy of a (2+1)-dimensional extremal rotating Ba\~{n}ados-Teitelbom-Zanelli

Thermodynamics and entropy of self-gravitating matter shells and black holes in d dimensions

The thermodynamic properties of self-gravitating spherical thin matter shells an black holes in $d>4$ dimensions are studied, extending previous analysis for $d=4$. The shell joins a Minkowski

Existence and stability of relativistic fluid spheres supported by thin shells

We propose two models for constant density relativistic perfect-fluid spheres supported by thin-shell configurations. These models are obtained from the Schwarzschild constant density star solution:

In this work we derive the junction conditions for the matching between two spacetimes at a separation hypersurface in the perfect-fluid version of f ( R, T ) gravity, not only in the usual

Effect of the self-gravity of shells on a high energy collision in a rotating Bañados-Teitelboim-Zanelli spacetime

We consider a collision of two dust thin shells with a high center-of-mass (CM) energy including their self-gravity in a Ba\~nados-Teitelboim-Zanelli (BTZ) spacetime. The shells divide the BTZ

In this work, we study cosmological and astrophysical applications of the recently proposed generalized hybrid metric-Palatini gravity theory, which combines features of both the metric and the

Compact objects in general relativity: From Buchdahl stars to quasiblack holes

A Buchdahl star is a highly compact star for which the boundary radius $R$ obeys $R=\frac98 r_+$, where $r_+$ is the gravitational radius of the star itself. A quasiblack hole is a maximum compact



Thermodynamics of rotating thin shells in the BTZ spacetime

We investigate the thermodynamic equilibrium states of a rotating thin shell, i.e., a ring, in a ($2+1$)-dimensional spacetime with a negative cosmological constant. The inner and outer regions with

Entropy of extremal black holes: Horizon limits through charged thin shells in a unified approach

Using a unified approach, we study the entropy of extremal black holes through the entropy of an electrically charged thin shell. We encounter three cases in which a shell can be taken to its own

Extremal black holes, gravitational entropy and nonstationary metric fields

We show that extremal black holes have zero entropy by pointing out a simple fact: they are time independent throughout the spacetime and correspond to a single classical microstate. We show that

In this paper we calculate the entropy of a thin spherical shell that contracts reversibly from infinity down to its event horizon. We find that, for a broad class of equations of state, the entropy

Temperature, energy, and heat capacity of asymptotically anti-de Sitter black holes.

The thermodynamic properties of black holes in (3+1)- and (2+1-dimensional Einstein gravity with a negative cosmological constant are investigated and it is shown that the chemical potential conjugate to angular momentum is equal to the proper angular velocity of the black hole with respect to observers who are at rest in the stationary time slices.
