Providing an introduction to the fascinating subject of black holes, this book is suitable for advanced undergraduates and first year postgraduates. It offers an introduction to the exact solutions of Einstein's vacuum field equations, describing spherical and axisymmetric (rotating) black holes.Now consider a high frequency wave that comes in from infinity near v = 0 passing through the star as it is about to cross the horizon ... The incoming ray passes directly through the star, but, because the angular coordinates are suppressed, what we see in the diagram is the ... frequency incoming mode elu, a#39;v , in terms of the waves eAplbJU that define the out- vacuum in the spacetime exterior to the hole.
