Rotating Black Holes

Part of the Texts and Monographs in Physics book series (TMP)


All stars rotate more or less rapidly. When a horizon is formed during gravitational collapse, a Schwarzschild black hole is thus never produced. One expects, however, that the horizon will quickly settle down to a stationary state as a result of the emission of gravitational waves. The geometry of the stationary black hole is of course no longer spherically symmetric.
