Thermodynamics of Lifshitz Black Holes


Haishan Liu (Texas A&M University)



Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics & Astronomy

College Station, Texas 77843

Event Details

Dr. Liu will specialize the Wald formalism to derive the thermodynamical first law for static black holes with spherical/torus/hyperbolic symmetries in a variety of supergravities or supergravity-inspired theories involving multiple scalars and vectors. He will then apply the formula to study the first law of a general class of Lifshitz black holes and analyze the first law of three exact Lifshitz black holes and the results fit the general pattern.
