- Penrose inequalities and the stability of non-uniform black strings

In this talk I will first review static black holes in

Kaluza-Klein theory. It is well-known that within this theory there exist black

strings which are non-uniform along the Kaluza-Klein circle. Using numerical

methods, I will explain how to construct (for the first time) non-uniform black

strings in D>10, where D is the total number of spacetime dimensions. The

stability of such black objects has not been discussed before, and in the last

part of the talk I will explain how one can study the stability of non-uniform

black strings using Penrose inequalities. This will lead to a new conjecture

for the phase diagram of static Kaluza-Klein black holes.
