Black holes in higher dimensions

Project Details

Key findings

This project is still on progress. Key results so far:
- Constructed several infinite new families of near-horizon geometry solutions to Einstein's equations.
- Used Ricci flow to construct solution of interest in AdS/CFT.
- Proved new near-horizon symmetry enhancement theorem.
- Demonstrated linearised gravitational instability of extreme Kerr and Reissner-Nordstrom black holes.
