dc.description.abstract In this thesis, aspects of the physics of black holes are reviewed and new results in black hole thermodynamics are presented. First, general black hole solutions of Einstein’s equations of general relativity are mentioned and a proof of conservation law of energy and momentum in general relativity is presented. Aspects of the laws of black hole mechanics and Hawking radiation are then studied. Two proposals which attempt to explain the origin of black hole entropy (the brick wall model and entanglement entropy) are then discussed. Finally, some recent work related to the possible production and detection of black holes in colliders is presented. en
