The Little Book of Black Holes: Science Essentials
The Little Book of Black Holes: Science Essentials4,12 51 5 Scritto da: Steven S. Gubser, Frans Pretorius Letto da: Andrew Eiden
After introducing the basics of the special and general theories of relativity, this book describes black holes both as astrophysical objects and theoretical "laboratories" in which physicists can test their understanding of gravitational, quantum, and thermal physics. From Schwarzschild black holes to rotating and colliding black holes, and from gravitational radiation to Hawking radiation and information loss, Steven Gubser and Frans Pretorius use creative thought experiments and analogies to explain their subject accessibly. They also describe the decades-long quest to observe the universe in gravitational waves, which recently resulted in the LIGO observatories' detection of the distinctive gravitational wave "chirp" of two colliding black holes?the first direct observation of black holes' existence.
