Recent studies have shown that black hole dynamics have an extremely simplified limit in a sufficiently large spacetime dimension: the large ā€˜Dā€™ limit. In the large D limit, black hole dynamics are described by an effective membrane theory of collective variables on the horizon, which is useful to explore a vast variety of black holes in higher dimensions. In this talk, I will explain the large D limit of General Relativity, emergent effective membrane theory and its applications.
