Trapped photons in Schwarzschild-Tangherlini spacetimes

by Mark Bugden




Classical and Quantum Gravity, Volume 37, Issue 1, id.015001


We study the set of trapped photons outside the event horizon of Schwarzschild-Tangherlini black holes in dimension d≥4. We prove that the only trapped photons are those with constant Boyer-Lindquist coordinate radius.

About the Co-Author

Mark has a background in mathematics and physics, completing his PhD in String Theory and higher-dimensional black holes (Australian National University, Canberra). During postdocs in the Czech Republic (Charles University, Prague) and Germany (Max Planck Institute, Konstanz), he developed an interest in, and experience with, neural networks and machine learning. At dida he works as a Machine Learning Scientist, bridging the gap between theoretical and practical.
