"Tidal deformation and dynamics of black holes"

E. Poisson
Dept. Physics, Univ. Guelph (Guelph, Canada)

I will present an overview of the work that has gone into formulating
a theory of tidal deformations and dynamics of black holes in general
relativity. This includes a description of the tidal environment
around a black hole, a description of the tidal deformation in terms
of the intrinsic geometry of the event horizon, and a description of
how the black hole can exchange energy and angular momentum with its
tidal environment.
