6. Black. Holes. in. Higher-Dimensional. Gravity. N.A. Obers Abstract This article
reviews some of the recent progress in uncovering the phase structure
ofblackhole solutions inhigher-dimensional vacuum Einstein gravity. The two
classes on which we focus are Kaluza–Klein black holes, i.e., static solutions with
an event horizon in asymptotically flat spaces with compact directions and
stationary solutions with an event horizon in asymptotically flat space. Highlights
include the recently ...

Most prominently black holes display an event horizon which classically cannot
be crossed by light rays emitted from their interior. The simplest black hole
solution in four dimensions, the Schwarzschild black hole, has been discovered
nearly a century ago [1], and many more solutions with increasing degree of
complexity are known by now both in lower and in higher dimensions. The latter
have received much attention recently due to qualitatively new solutions such as
black rings ...

We discuss the thermodynamics of higher dimensional black holes with particular emphasis on a new class of spinning black holes which, due to the increased number of Casimir invariants, have additional spin degrees of freedom.
