Black Holes in Higher Dimensions  

In General > s.a. black-hole geometry and topology; black-hole uniqueness and hair; gravitational lensing.
* Possibilities: While in 4D there are very stringent results on the geometry and topology of stationary black holes, in higher dimensions there are black strings, black p-branes, black rings, "black Saturns", and no no-hair theorem; But also more instabilities.
