(p.118) 6 Higher dimensional black holes
Advanced General Relativity
Oxford University Press

The study of higher dimensional black holes is motivated and the higher dimensional black hole solutions of Einstein’s vacuum field equations are described. The generalization to space–times with arbitrary dimensions of the Gibbons–Penrose inequality and of the hoop conjecture is established. Light-like boosts of non-rotating and rotating higher dimensional black holes are constructed.

Keywords:   higher dimensional black holes, hoop conjecture, light-like boosts, Gibbons-Penrose inequality
