DESCRIPTION:Perhaps the most striking prediction of general re
lativity is the existence of black holes – regions
of spacetime where the gravitational field is so
strong that nothing can escape. Once a black hole
has formed\, it is expected to be stable. Providin
g a mathematical proof of the stability of black h
oles is one of the most important open problems in
general relativity. In the journey towards resolu
tion of this nonlinear stability problem\, the fir
st step is the study of an associated linearised p
roblem. In this talk\, I will present my recent re
sults concerning the linear stability of charged r
otating black holes\, as modelled by subextremal K
err-Newman spacetimes. The stability of this famil
y of spacetimes is of special interest as it is cl
osely related to the plausibility of the concept o
f a black hole.
