**Black Holes in Higher Dimensions**

by Roberto Emparan, Harvey S. Reall

**Publisher**: arXiv 2008**Number of pages**: 77

**Description**:

We review black hole solutions of higher-dimensional vacuum gravity, and of higher-dimensional supergravity theories. The discussion of vacuum gravity is pedagogical, with detailed reviews of Myers-Perry solutions, black rings, and solution-generating techniques. We discuss black hole solutions of maximal supergravity theories, including black holes in anti-de Sitter space.
