Spacetime Geometry Inside a Black Hole
After introducing general relativity theory, black holes are described. The reader is assumed to know calculus and some special relativity theory.
Developments in General Relativity: Black Hole Singularity and Beyond
Presentation also addresses the questions: "Can we see inside a black hole?" and "Can a falling observer cross the singularity without being crushed?" (April 14, 2003)
Observational evidence for black holes, and some developments involving cosmic censorship and the statistical origin of black hole entropy. Reviews of Modern Physics. (August 12, 1998)
Black Holes and Naked Singularities
This article gives an elementary review of gravitational collapse and the cosmic censorship hypothesis. Known models of collapse resulting in the formation of black holes and naked singularities are summarized. (May 18, 1998)
Quantum Geometry and Black Holes
Non-perturbative quantum general relativity provides a possible framework to analyze issues related to black hole thermodynamics from a fundamental perspective. (April 17, 1998)
Higher Dimensional Chern-Simons Theories and Topological Black Holes
It has been recently pointed out that black holes of constant curvature with a "chronological singularity" can be constructed in any spacetime dimension. In this paper, a brief summary of these new black holes is given. (February 28, 1998)
Black Holes: A general introduction
This article presents in a pictorial way the basic concepts of black hole's theory, as well as a description of the astronomical sites where black holes are suspected to lie. (January 26, 1998)
Quantum Fields Near Black Holes
This review gives an introduction into problems, concepts and techniques when quantizing matter fields near black holes. (January 7, 1998)
Introduction to Black Hole Microscopy
The aim of these notes is both to review the standard understanding of the Hawking effect. The fundamentals of the Unruh effect are reviewed, and then the Hawking effect is explained as a ``gravitational Unruh effect". (October 6, 1995)
