Black Holes - A review of the theory and history of black holes.
Black Holes - We review the observational evidence for black holes, and briefly discuss some of their properties. We also describe some recent developments involving cosmic censorship and the statistical origin of black hole entropy
Black holes - Portal linking to sites about very high density objects: black holes, neutron stars.
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.
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.
Developments in General Relativity: Black Hole Singularity and Beyond - An outline of the recent achievements in our understanding of the nature of the singularity inside a rotating black hole. This presentation also addresses the questions: "Can we see inside a black hole?" and "Can a falling observer cross the singularity without being crushed?"
Hawking Radiation - Classically, black holes are black. Quantum mechanically, black holes radiate, with a radiation known as Hawking radiation, after the British physicist Stephen Hawking who first proposed it.
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".
Quantum Fields Near Black Holes - This review gives an introduction into problems, concepts and techniques when quantizing matter fields near black holes. The first part focusses on quantum fields in general curved space-times. The second part is devoted to a detailed treatment of the Unruh effect in uniformly accelerated frames and the Hawking radiation of black holes
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.
Schwarzschild Geometry - The Schwarzschild geometry describes the spacetime geometry of empty space surrounding any spherical mass.
