Accelerating black hole chemistry.

Gregory, Ruth and Scoins, Andrew (2019) 'Accelerating black hole chemistry.', Physics letters B., 796 . pp. 191-195.


We introduce a new set of chemical variables for the accelerating black hole. We show how these expressions suggest that conical defects emerging from a black hole can be considered as true hair – a new charge that the black hole can carry – and discuss the impact of conical deficits on black hole thermodynamics from this ‘chemical’ perspective. We conclude by proving a new Reverse Isoperimetric Inequality for black holes with conical defects.
