Extending General Relativity using black holes

Ana Rita Lopes Ribeiro

Abstract

Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity offers the geometrical and physical tools that allow the understanding of the structure of spacetime and, in particular, how a black hole shapes the spacetime around it.
In this talk, I will show how we can determine both the Schwarzschild and Reissner-Nordstrom metric tensors as well as how we can extract their physical properties by solving the Einstein’s equations.
