Black holes in higher dimensions

Over the last decade we have realized that black holes in more than four dimensions are much more complex objects than four-dimensional ones. Their horizons admit a much wider class of geometries and topologies, and much richer dynamics. In five dimensions we may be close to having a complete classification of them, but in dimensions six or higher their study requires the development of novel techniques. In this talk I will review the motivations to study these higher-dimensional black holes, and the recent progress in understanding them.
