CPT Student Seminar: Black Hole Chemistry

Presented by Wilson Brenna, University of Waterloo (Visiting Durham)

19 January 2015 17:00 in OC218

Recent work interpreting the cosmological constant as a thermodynamical pressure term has yielded interesting results regarding the universality class of AdS black holes. I will focus on the path of expanding this field to black holes with non-AdS asymptotics. Specifically we will go through a thermodynamic definition of mass that is consistent with the first law and a modified Smarr relation.
