The course is covering a review of classical black holes and basic quantum aspects of black holes. It also indicates some open problems in black hole physics. Knowledge of black holes on the level of NTMF037 course is necessary (though briefly reviewed at the beginning). Completing first the NTMF065 course is recommended (though not strictly required).
