Bohrlike black holes
Abstract
The idea that black holes (BHs) result in highly excited states representing both the “hydrogen atom” and the “quasithermal emission” in quantum gravity is today an intuitive but general conviction. In this paper it will be shown that such an intuitive picture is more than a picture. In fact, we will discuss a model of quantum BH somewhat similar to the historical semiclassical model of the structure of a hydrogen atom introduced by Bohr in 1913. The model is completely consistent with existing results in the literature, starting from the celebrated result of Bekenstein on the area quantization.

Magnetized configurations with black holes and KaluzaKlein bubbles: Smarrlike relations and the first law
We present a general class of exact solutions in EinsteinMaxwelldilaton gravity describing configurations of black holes and KaluzaKlein bubbles magnetized along the compact dimension. Smarrlike relations for the mass and the tension are found. We also derive the mass and tension first laws for the configurations under consideration using the Noether current approach. The novelty is the appearance of new terms in the Smarrlike relations and the first laws containing the magnetic flux. The solutions we consider are also explicit examples showing that in KaluzaKlein spacetimes the interval (rod) structure and the charges (which are zero by construction for themore » 
BTZlike black holes in even dimensional Lovelock theories
In the present paper, a new class of black hole solutions is constructed in even dimensional Lovelock BornInfeld theory. These solutions are interesting since, in some respects, they are closer to black hole solutions of an odd dimensional Lovelock ChernSimons theory than to the more usual black hole solutions in even dimensions. This hybrid behavior arises when nonEinstein base manifolds are considered. The entropies of these solutions have been analyzed using Wald formalism. These metrics exhibit a quite nontrivial behavior. Their entropies can change sign and can even be identically zero depending on the geometry of the corresponding base manifolds.more » 
PHOTON RINGS AROUND KERR AND KERRLIKE BLACK HOLES
Very long baseline interferometric observations have resolved structure on scales of only a few Schwarzschild radii around the supermassive black holes at the centers of our Galaxy and M87. In the near future, such observations are expected to image the shadows of these black holes together with a bright and narrow ring surrounding their shadows. For a Kerr black hole, the shape of this photon ring is nearly circular unless the black hole spins very rapidly. Whether or not, however, astrophysical black holes are truly described by the Kerr metric as encapsulated in the nohair theorem still remains an untestedmore » 
SECULAR EVOLUTION OF BINARIES NEAR MASSIVE BLACK HOLES: FORMATION OF COMPACT BINARIES, MERGER/COLLISION PRODUCTS AND G2LIKE OBJECTS
Here we discuss the evolution of binaries around massive black holes (MBHs) in nuclear stellar clusters. We focus on their secular evolution due to the perturbation by the MBHs, while simplistically accounting for their collisional evolution. Binaries with highly inclined orbits with respect to their orbits around MBHs are strongly affected by secular processes, which periodically change their eccentricities and inclinations (e.g., KozaiLidov cycles). During periapsis approach, dissipative processes such as tidal friction may become highly efficient, and may lead to shrinkage of a binary orbit and even to its merger. Binaries in this environment can therefore significantly change theirmore »
