Primordial Kerr Black Holes
January 24, 2021
Primordial Black Holes (PBHs) are appealing candidates for dark matter in the universe but are severely constrained by theoretical and observational constraints. We will focus on the Hawking evaporation limits extended to Kerr black holes. In particular, we will discuss the possibility to distinguish between black holes of primordial and of stellar origins based on the Thorne limit on their spin. We will also review the isotropic extragalactic gamma ray background constraints and show that the ``window'' in which PBHs can constitute all of the dark matter depends strongly on the PBH spin. Finally, we will consider the possibility that the so-called Planet 9 is a primordial black hole.
