Zhiting Liu The Black Hole The first impression of a black hole may be heard like a dark and a very horrible hole. It was a big planet that you cannot ignore. It is the object that have a very strong gravitational, even the light cannot escape. The first modern solution of general relativity that would characterize a black hole was found by Karl Schwarzschild in , although its interpretation as a region of space from which nothing can escape was first published by David Finkelstein in

In this lecture, Prof. Liu first discusses important scales in classical and quantum gravity, and then reviews the spacetime geometry of a black hole. . Thermodynamics of black holes The most general known solutions to Einstein’s field equations of general rela- tivity which contain black holes are the so-called Kerr-Newman family, which describe an axisymmetric, matter-free space-time representing a black hole which rotates and carries an .

He is the author of two popular books on modern physics: The Cosmic Landscape, and the bestseller The Black Hole War, which describes how, over the course of 25 years, Susskind ultimately convinced Stephen Hawking that Hawking’s theory of Black Hole entropy was incorrect. In , David Finkelstein published a paper, based on Einstein and Schwarzschild ’s work, describing the idea of a “one-way membrane” which triggered a renewed interest in black hole theory (although the phrase itself was not coined until a lecture by John Wheeler in ).

Classical Theory of Black Holes (Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics) by G. Gibbons (Author), M. Perry (Author). For anybody who is studying general relativity at a graduate level or higher, this is a fantastic book.

Explains very clearly the mathematics behind the theory and its prediction of the very exotic black by: After careful analysis of the data, it was found that only the radiation from the x-ray source Cyg X−1 in the constellation Cygnus had characteristics consistent with theoretical ideas about “black holes”.

The radiation from Cygnus X−1 exhibits no periodicity at any time scale between s and several : Nail R. Sibgatullin.

Classical theory looks at Einstein's black holes and Hawking radiation. More The observational evidence points to the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) which captured an apparent black hole on 30 April, This volume has become one of the modern classics of relativity theory.

When it was written in there was little physical evidence for the existence of black holes. Recent discoveries have only served to underscore the elegant theory developed here, and the book remains one of the clearest statements of the relevant mathematics.

In the early s it is was realized that there is a striking formal analogy between the Laws of black-hole mechanics and the Laws of classical thermodynamics.

Before the discovery of Hawking radiation, however, it was generally thought that the analogy was only formal, and did not reflect a deep connection between gravitational and thermodynamical phenomena. It is still commonly held Cited by: 5.

Einstein's gravitational theory predicts the existence of black holes, objects so dense that light cannot escape their gravitational field. Several types of black hole may exist: mini black holes, stellar black holes, and supermassive black holes with millions of solar masses.

Originally Answered: What are some good books on black holes. You know, Stephen Hawking is the one who has spent his major part of life in doing research on black holes. Then probably his books would contain the stuff you want on black hole, for example A brief history of time, although this book doesn't contain everything about black hole but still this topic is a major part of the book.

Properties of classical black holes and both classical and quantum black hole thermodynamics are treated. The selection and focus is determined by my idiosyncracies, time limitations, and an eﬁort to illuminate some topics that have not traditionally been emphasized.

As in the previous chapter the primary references here, with the order reversed, are by Carroll [ 1 ], which contains a very pedagogical presentation of the subject, and by Wald [ 2 ].

Well, it has a few practical challenges: we don’t think any black holes are close enough for us to reach in 10 years, and we don’t think any spaceship or human can survive near a black hole. But the key point about the slowing down of time is a natural consequence of Einstein’s general theory of relativity, and we saw that its predictions.
