It is thus both a fascinating and timely subject to investigate. The main purpose of this lecture is a treatment of advanced topics/current research topics in black hole physics. Topics covered in these lectures:
Required prerequisites: the lecture Black Holes I is a necessary prerequisite (or, equivalently, good knowledge in General Relativity/basics of black hole physics) Black Holes I (136.028)LECTURES ARE OVER  BELOW ARE LINKS AND EXERCISES FROM WS 2019/20 Draft of lecture notes (v0.0  please send corrections to grumil@hep.itp.tuwien.ac.at) Discovery of gravitational waves (summary for public) Exercises week 10 (due on January 21) Addendum to lecture notes: 1page derivation of Kerr Exercises week 9 (due on January 14) Exercises week 8 (due on January 7) Exercises week 7 (due on December 17) Exercises week 6 (due on December 10) Exercises week 5 (due on December 3) Exercises week 4 (due on Novemver 26) Exercises week 3 (due on November 12) Movie of journey into Schwarzschild black hole (by Andrew Hamilton) Exercises week 2 (due on November 5) Exercises week 1 (due on October 22) First lecture: Overview and History Black holes have advanced to the forefront of current research in various disciplines: besides the obvious ones, general relativity, mathematical physics and astrophysics, also string theory, quantum chromodynamics, cosmology, computational physics, quantum gravity and even part of condensed matter physics devote a significant fraction of their resources to the study of black holes. It is thus both a fascinating and timely subject to investigate. The main purpose of this lecture is a comprehensive introduction to black hole physics. Topics covered in these lectures:
Required prerequisites: good knowledge of special relativity is required; basic knowledge of general relativity is helpful, but not required; no prior knowledge of astrophysics, particle physics or cosmology is required Gravity and holography in lower dimensions I (136.073)Venue: Seminar room FH 3rd floor, yellow tower First lecture: October 2, 2018 Exercises week 10 (due on January 15) Exercises week 9 (due on January 8) Exercises week 8 (due on December 4) Exercises week 7 (due on November 27) Exercises week 6 (due on November 13) Exercises week 5 (due on November 6) Exercises week 4 (due on October 30) Exercises week 3 (due on October 23) Exercises week 2 (due on October 16) Exercises week 1 (due on October 9) Seventh lecture sheet (AdS3/CFT2) [draft version; still in preparation] Sixth lecture sheet (Canonical realization of asymptotic symmetries) Fifth lecture sheet (Gravity in two dimension) Fourth lecture sheet (Gravity in three dimension) Third lecture sheet (Cartan formulation) Second lecture sheet (Asymptotic Killing vectors) First lecture sheet (Summary of gravity with boundaries) Topics covered in these lectures:
