Abstract

Black holes are the elementary particles of gravity, the
final state of sufficiently massive stars and of energetic collisions. With a
forty-year long history, black hole physics is a fully-blossomed field which
promises to embrace several branches of theoretical physics. Here I review the
main developments in highly dynamical black holes with an emphasis on high
energy black hole collisions and probes of particle physics via superradiance.
