Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 701)


These lectures deal with black holes (BHs) in different space–time (s-t) dimensions and their relation to supersymmetry (SUSY). On the same footing of monopoles, massless point-particles, charged massive particles, and so on, BHs are indeed in the spectrum of the general theories that are supposed to unify gravity with elementary particle interactions, namely superstring theory, and its generalization, called M-theory.
