Centre for Particle Theory Colloquia: Black Holes in Theories with Large Extra Dimensions

Presented by Panayiota Kanti,

25 November 2003 16:00 in CLC 202

"In theories that postulate the existence of extra, spacelike dimensions in nature, the production of black holes may be greatly enhanced. Like their four-dimensional analogues, these black holes emit Hawking radiation in the form of particle modes. The detection of these modes in the laboratory can give us valuable information concerning the dimensionality of spacetime since both the amount and type of radiation emitted strongly depends on the number of extra dimensions that exist in nature."
