black hole thermodynamics

(black hole mechanics)
(science of black holes)

Black hole thermodynamics (or black hole mechanics) is a science of black holes analogous to and relating black holes to thermodynamics. It is based on four laws (laws of black hole mechanics) analogous to the four laws of thermodynamics, but rather than dealing with entropy and temperature, deal to black hole gravity, energy, and event-horizon area.
