Princeton University Gravity Seminar, "On the non-linear evolution of instabilities of black rings"
Speaker: Pau Figueras (Cambridge)
Abstract: In this talk I will first review our current understanding (or lack of) of black holes in higher dimensional vacuum general relativity. In particular I will describe some features that are believed to be generic, such as the existence of black holes with non-spherical horizons and dynamical instabilities. In the second part of my talk, I will describe how we can use numerical general relativity to follow the evolution of these instabilities into the full non-linear regime for a particular class of black holes, namely black rings.
