"... Abstract. I describe some examples in support of the conjecture that the horizon area of a near equilibrium black hole is an adiabatic invariant. These include a Schwarzschild black hole perturbed by quasistatic scalar fields (which may be minimally or nonminimally coupled to curvature), a Kerr blac ..."

"... Abstract. We review the construction of the universal HamiltonJacobi counterterm for dilaton gravity in two dimensions, derive the corresponding result in the Cartan formulation and elaborate further upon black hole thermodynamics and semiclassical corrections. Applications include spherically sym ..."

"... This note discusses some results on the nonBPS excitations of Dbranes. We show that the excitation spectrum of a bound state of Dstrings changes character when the length of the wrapping circle becomes less than ∼ g−1L (S). We review the observed relation between the low energy absorption crosss ..."

Black Holes in String Theory
"... This thesis is devoted to trying to find a microscopic quantum description of black holes. We consider black holes in string theory which is a quantum theory of gravity. We find that the “area law ” black hole entropy for extremal and nearextremal charged black holes arises from counting microscopi ..."

"... One would expect spacetime to have a foamlike structure on the Planck scale with a very high topology. If spacetime is simply connected (which is assumed in this paper), the nontrivial homology occurs in dimension two, and spacetime can be regarded as being essentially the topological sum of S 2 × ..."

× S 2 and K3 bubbles. Comparison with the instantons for pair creation of black holes shows that the S 2 × S 2 bubbles can be interpreted as closed loops of virtual black holes. It is shown that scattering in such topological fluctuations leads to loss of quantum coherence, or in other words, to a

"... We review the present status of black hole thermodynamics. Our review includes discussion of classical black hole thermodynamics, Hawking radiation from black holes, the generalized second law, and the issue of entropy bounds. A brief survey also is given of approaches to the calculation of black ho ..."

Black Hole Shadows of Charged Spinning Black Holes
, 2005
"... We propose a method for measuring the black hole charge by imaging a black hole shadow in a galactic center by future interferometers. Even when the black hole is uncharged, it is possible to confirm the charge neutrality by this method. We first derive the analytic formulae of the black hole shadow ..."
