Motivation

Black holes are the most elementary and fascinating

objects in General Relativity

In their presence the effects of the space
-
time curvature are dramatic

In string theory, mathematics and recent cutting edge
experiments black objects are also relevant.

The study of the
properties of higher

is essential to
understand the
dynamics of space

Q1: If black objects are thermally unstable in the grand
-
canonical ensemble for
j
th

does this imply that there they are classically unstable?

Instabilities from thermodynamics

But to investigate this and where the threshold of the classical instability is one
has to perform a linearized analysis of the perturbations.

Q2c: Is there any relation between zeros of eigenvalues of Hess(G) and j
m
?

Q2: What information can we get from the study of the
thermodynamical

instabilities?

We can establish a membrane phase signaled by the change in its thermodynamical
behavior which could imply the classical instability.

Q2b: Which is the threshold of the membrane phase, j
m
?

We can study the zeros of the Hess(G) which seem to be linked to the
classical instabilities

Q2a: How to establish the membrane phase?

Which ensemble is the most suitable for this analysis?

Entropy

microcanonical ensemble

Thermal ensembles

Gibbs potential

grand canonical ensemble

Enthalpy

18

Due to the equivalence principle, there is no local definition of the energy
in gravitational theories

Basic idea of the quasilocal
energy: enclose a region of
space
-
time with some
surface and compute the
energy with respect to that
surface

in fact all
thermodynamical quantities
can be computed in this way

For asymptotical flat space
-
time, it is possible to extend the quasilocal surface to spatial infinity
provided one incorporates appropriate boundary (counterterms) in the action to remove
divergences from the integration over the infinite volume of space

time.

Thermal stability

In analogy with the definitions for thermal expansion in the liquid

gas system, the
specific heat at a constant angular velocity, the isothermal compressibility, and the
coefficient of thermal expansion can be defined

The response functions are positive for different values of the parameters implying there is no

The doubly spinning
black hole and the
singly spinning black
ring are thermally

A second rotation could help
to stabilize the solution

Doubly spinning black ring

What about the thermal stability of the doubly spinning black ring?

These

transition to an infinitesimally nearby solution along the same family of solutions.

The existence and location of the threshold of this regime is
signaled by the minimum of the temperature and the maximum

But let

zero of the determinant of the Gibbs potential’s hessian

These points seem to be related to the classical instabilities.

Summary and outlook

It would be interesting to investigate numerically whether these correspond to the zero
-
mode perturbations.

We showed ,in parameter space, that doubly
spinning black rings are thermally unstable

Found the thresholds of the transition to the
black membrane phase of black holes and
black rings with at least two spins.

Identified particular cases of doubly
spinning BR with no membrane phase

Study the ultraspinning behavior of multi black holes, such as the bicycling black ring and
saturn, which can be relevant in finding new higher dimensional multi black hole solutions.
