Title: Constructing and Exploring Charged Myers-Perry Black Holes

Abstract: Though Myers and Perry provided the metric for arbitrarily rotating black holes in all dimension more than 30 years ago, the addition of electric charge to the black hole remains unsolved. Both analytical and numerical analysis have relied on special cases of to make progress, and so their results are correspondingly limited. In this talk I outline a method for obtaining the general charged Myers-Perry black hole in 4+1 dimensions, through a combination of analytic and numeric techniques. These methods also bring to light interesting and novel properties of charged rotating black holes, which I will discuss. I present our current results in this program and the physics questions we hope to address with these new black hole solutions.
