About this book

Written by foremost experts, this short book gives a clear description of the physics of quantum black holes. The reader will learn about quantum black holes in four and higher dimensions, primordial black holes, the production of black holes in high energy particle collisions, Hawking radiation, black holes in models of low scale quantum gravity and quantum gravitational aspects of black holes.

About the authors

Xavier Calmet is a Reader in Theoretical Particle Physics at the University of Sussex. His various research interests are in theoretical physics. He currently works  on the interplay between particle physics and gravity which can be probed using black holes. He is the leader of the working group on quantum black holes of the European COST action "black holes in a violent universe".

 

Bernard Carr is Professor of Mathematics and Astronomy at Queen Mary, University of London. His area of research is cosmology and relativistic astrophysics and includes such topics as the early universe, black holes, dark matter and the anthropic principle. In 1984 he was awarded the Adams Prize by the University of Cambridge and In 2007 he edited a book entitled "Universe or Multiverse?". 

 

Elizabeth Winstanley is Professor of Mathematical Physics at the University of Sheffield. Her research interests focus on black holes in general relativity and quantum field theory in curved space-time.  She is a past chair of the Gravitational Physics Group of the Institute of Physics in the UK and was the 2010 Australian Institute of Physics Women in Physics Lecturer.  

Reviews

From the reviews:

“A small and great book! … the renowned authors – top experts in the field – give a fulminant review on the fascinating topic of Quantum Black Holes. … The book covers all these aspects in a well written and up-to-date way, is very understandable, and simultaneously at a high scientific level. It includes excellent illustrations and tables. Nobody interested in this fascinating topic, and not only specialized experts, should miss this book.” (Philosophy, Religion and Science Book Reviews, bookinspections.wordpress.com, May, 2014)
