Aretakis Instability

Amitabh Virmani
Chennai Mathematical Institute.


In this talk, I will discuss the subject of the instability of extremal black holes. One of the topics I will focus on is the decay of scalar perturbation on and outside the horizon of an extremal Reissner-Nordstrom black hole, and the importance of AdS2 physics in such an analysis.
