Acceleration in 3 dimensions - a new perspective

Not scheduled
Oral presentation


Prof. Ruth Gregory (King's College London)


The C-metric in 4D is an interesting exact solution of Einstein's equations, representing a black hole being pulled by a "cosmic string". In 3D, we can construct similar metrics, but these turn out to have sometimes quite different properties. I will give a complete classification of "3DC" metrics, and show how their global structure varies from their 4D cousins, and the BTZ solution.
