Traditional treatments of the first law of black hole thermodynamic s do not include a discussion of pressure and volume. We give an overview of re cent developments proposing a definition of volume that can be used to ex tend the first law to include these appropriately. New results are also pre senting relating to the critical point and the associated second order phas e transition for a rotating black-hole in four-dimensional space-time which is asy mptot- ically anti-de Sitter…

Maxwell’s Equal Area Law and the Hawking-Page Phase Transition

We study the phases of a Schwarzschild black hole in the Anti-deSitter background geometry. Exploiting fluid/gravity duality, we construct the Maxwell equal area isotherm   in the temperature-entropy

The compressibility of rotating black holes in D-dimensions

Treating the cosmological constant as a pressure, in the context of black hole thermodynamics, a thermodynamic volume for the black hole can be defined as being the thermodynamic variable conjugate

Universality of P − V criticality in horizon thermodynamics

We study P − V criticality of black holes in Lovelock gravities in the context of horizon thermodynamics. The corresponding first law of horizon thermodynamics emerges as one of the Einstein-Lovelock

Thermodynamic Phase Transition of Generalized Ayon-Beato Garcia Black Holes

In this work, we study thermodynamics of generalized Ayon-Beato and Garcia (ABG) black hole metric which contains three parameters named as mass m , magnetic charge q , and

Black hole chemistry: thermodynamics with Lambda

We review recent developments on the thermodynamics of black holes in extended phase space, where the cosmological constant is interpreted as thermodynamic pressure and treated as a thermodynamic

Phase transition of the higher dimensional charged Gauss-Bonnet black hole in de Sitter spacetime

We study the phase transition of charged Gauss-Bonnet-de Sitter (GB-dS) black hole. For black holes in de Sitter spacetime, there is not only black hole horizon, but also cosmological horizon. The

Pressure and volume in the first law of black hole thermodynamics

The mass of a black hole is interpreted, in terms of thermodynamic potentials, as being the enthalpy, with the pressure given by the cosmological constant. The volume is then defined as being the
