The dynamics of rotating black holes
After an introductory overview of standard results for perturbed black holes (regarding quasinormal modes and power-law tails) we focus on three issues of recent interest. We discuss the possibility that the new generation of gravitational-wave detectors that are due to come online in the near future will be able to do “black-hole spectroscopy” by inferring black-hole parameters from quasinormal-mode signals. We summarise the recent effort to study perturbation of Kerr black holes using time-evolutions of the Teukolsky equation, and finally we present recent results that seem to indicate the existence of a new superradiance related phenomenon for rapidly spinning black holes.

Abstract

After an introductory overview of standard results for perturbed black holes (regarding quasinormal modes and power-law tails) we focus on three issues of recent interest. We discuss the possibility that the new generation of gravitational-wave detectors that are due to come online in the near future will be able to do “black-hole spectroscopy” by inferring black-hole parameters from quasinormal-mode signals. We summarise the recent effort to study perturbation of Kerr black holes using time-evolutions of the Teukolsky equation, and finally we present recent results that seem to indicate the existence of a new superradiance related phenomenon for rapidly spinning black holes.
