These lecture notes are dedicated to the most recent theoretical applications of Black Hole solutions in high-energy physics. The main motivation of this volume is to present the latest black hole backgrounds that are relevant for gauge/gravity correspondence. Leading scientists in the field explain effective techniques for finding singular and cosmological solutions embedded in gauged supergravity, shedding light on underlying properties and symmetries. Starting from a basic level, the mathematical structures underlying black holes and cosmologies are revealed, helping the reader grasp the connection between theoretical approaches and physical observations with insights into possible future developments from both a theoretical and experimental point...

Quasars at All Cosmic Epochs Book Description :

The last 50 years have seen a tremendous progress in the research on quasars. From a time when quasars were unforeseen oddities, we have come to a view that considers quasars as active galactic nuclei, with nuclear activity a coming-of-age experienced by most or all galaxies in their evolution. We have passed from a few tens of known quasars of the early 1970s to the 500,000 listed in the catalogue of the Data Release 14 of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. Not surprisingly, accretion processes on the central black holes in the nuclei of galaxies — the key concept in our understanding of quasars and active nuclei in general — have gained an outstanding status in present-day astrophysics. Accretion produces a rich spectrum of phenomena in all bands of...

Cosmological Frontiers Book Description :

‘Cosmological Frontiers’ explores a variety of topical themes within the general fields of cosmology and astrophysics such as: Dark matter, dark energy, black holes, theory of gravity, redshift, plasmas, cosmic microwave background radiation, branes, the Big Bang theory, and the Steady State model. More generally, the current volume gives expression to a process of critically reflecting on some of the discoveries of astrophysics and the field of cosmology as a means of seeking the truth about the nature of certain aspects of reality....

  • ISBN 10 : 9781139485395


Gravitation Book Description :

Covering all aspects of gravitation in a contemporary style, this advanced textbook is ideal for graduate students and researchers in all areas of theoretical physics. The 'Foundation' section develops the formalism in six chapters, and uses it in the next four chapters to discuss four key applications - spherical spacetimes, black holes, gravitational waves and cosmology. The six chapters in the 'Frontier' section describe cosmological perturbation theory, quantum fields in curved spacetime, and the Hamiltonian structure of general relativity, among several other advanced topics, some of which are covered in-depth for the first time in a textbook. The modular structure of the book allows different sections to be combined to suit a variety of courses...

New Frontiers in Black Hole Astrophysics IAU S324 Book Description :

Black holes lie at the heart of some of the most fascinating astrophysical phenomena. IAU Symposium 324 marked the 100th anniversary of Schwarzschild's solution of Einstein's field equations predicting the existence of black holes. Our understanding of black holes has come an impressively long way since then, with the last major discovery being coalescing black holes producing gravitational waves, also predicted in 1916. In this volume, observational and theoretical experts discuss the current state-of-the-art in the astrophysics of black-hole systems and their exploitation in testing fundamental theories of physics. Topics span a wide range and include a historical review, the similarity and diversity of black hole systems, gamma ray bursts, tidal d...

Cosmic Frontiers Book Description :

Explore the mysteries of the cosmos with this captivating anthology from Science News. Since Edwin Hubble discovered the great distance to Andromeda, our conception of the universe has grown dramatically. No longer bound by the confines of the Milky Way, astronomers and physicists began to study areas of the cosmos much further from home. Our new knowledge and technology have provided us with answers to many astronomical puzzles, but they have also opened the door to countless questions. This extensive collection of articles from Science News delves deep into the mysteries of the universe. Tackling topics from the Big Bang to black holes, and the elusive material known as dark matter, it answers questions and explores still-developing theories. Cosmi...

Relativity Astrophysics and Cosmology Book Description :

The 1972 Banff lectures attempted a systematic exposition of the ideas underlying recent developments in general relativity and its astronomical applications at a level accessible and useful to graduate students having some previous acquaintance with the subject. To our regret, it was not possible to include any printed record of Peebles' beautiful lectures on observational cosmology or of the many stimulating seminars on special topics contributed by the participants. What remains is nevertheless a reason ably self-contained and compact introduction to Einstein's theory in its modern in carnation, and we hope it will be found useful by the many physicists, astronomers, and mathematicians who wish to update and deepen their understanding of the theor...
