Beginning with an overview of the theory of black holes by the editor, this book presents a collection of ten chapters by leading physicists dealing with the variety of quantum mechanical and quantum gravitational effects pertinent to black holes. The contributions address topics such as Hawking radiation, the thermodynamics of black holes, the information paradox and firewalls, Monsters, primordial black holes, self-gravitating Bose-Einstein condensates, the formation of small black holes in high energetic collisions of particles, minimal length effects in black holes and small black holes at the Large Hadron Collider. Viewed as a whole the collection provides stimulating reading for researchers and graduate students seeking a summary of the quantum features of black holes.

Fundamental Physics with Black Holes (Xavier Calmet).- Black holes and thermodynamics - The first half century (Daniel Grumiller, Robert McNees and Jakob Salzer).- The Firewall Phenomenon (R. B. Mann).- Monsters, Black holes and Entropy (Stephen D. H. Hsu).- Primordial Black Holes: sirens of the early Universe (Anne M. Green).- Self-gravitating Bose-Einstein condensates (Pierre-Henri Chavanis).- Quantum Amplitudes in Black-Hole Evaporation with Local Supersymmetry (P.D.D'Eath and A.N.St.J.Farley).- Hawking radiation from higher-dimensional black holes (Panagiota Kanti and Elizabeth Winstanley).- Black Holes at the Large Hadron Collider (Greg Landsberg).-  Minimum length effects in black hole physics (Roberto Casadio, Octavian Micu, Piero Nicolini).

Xavier Calmet is a faculty member of the Theoretical Particle Physics Group at the University of Sussex. His current research interests span the interplay between particle physics and gravitational physics, grand unification, quantum gravity, physics of small black holes, the dark side of the universe (dark matter, dark energy) and information theory. He leads the working group on Quantum Black Holes that is part of the COST action: "Black Holes in a Violent Universe". Calmet is a founding editor of the Springer Briefs in Physics and a member of the editorial board of Foundations of Physics.

An in depth look at the possible roles of quantum phenomena in black hole physics

A substantial introduction by the editor integrates these different aspects into the larger picture of black holes

Contributions by top physicists whose joint aim is the reconciliation of quantum mechanics and gravity
