The geometry of a higher-dimensional black hole on the brane

The geometry of a higher-dimensional black hole on the brane

Elizabeth Winstanley
Over the past 15 years models with large extra space-time dimensions have been extensively studied.
We have learned from these models that the energy scale of quantum gravity may be many orders of magnitude smaller than the conventional value of 1019 GeV.
This raises the tantalizing prospect of probing quantum gravity effects at the LHC.
Of the possible quantum gravity processes at the LHC, the formation and subsequent evaporation of microscopic black holes is one of the most spectacular.
We give an overview of some of the fundamental ideas of the large extra dimensions scenarios and the resulting black hole processes at the LHC.
