Special Issue "Probing New Physics with Black Holes"
A special issue of Universe (ISSN 2218-1997).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2019.
Laboratoire de Physique Subatomique et de Cosmologie, Université Grenoble-Alpes, CNRS-IN2P3 53, Avenue des Martyrs, 38026 Grenoble Cedex, France
Interests: cosmology, phenomenology of quantum gravity; diffusion of particles in the galaxy; black holes; general relativity
Black holes are extremely well defined in general relativity. However, many mysteries remain to be understood. This Special Issue focuses on black holes as probed for new physics. They might be used at the experimental level: from gravitational waves to direct astronomy. Black holes are now being intensively observed, and could reveal unexpected phenomena. This might also be the case at the purely theoretical level: from the recovery of the Bekenstein entropy to the endpoint of the Hawking evaporation, consistency is a very strong requirement. This Issue welcomes contributions about quantum gravity, string theory, or modified gravity effects in the black hole sector.
Prof. Dr. Aurélien Barrau
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Universe is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
