Frost, J. A., Gaunt, J. R., Sampaio, M. O. P., Casals, M., Dolan, S. R., Parker, M. A., & Webber, B. R. (2009). Phenomenology of Production and Decay of Spinning Extra-Dimensional Black Holes at Hadron Colliders..
We present results of CHARYBDIS2, a new Monte Carlo simulation of black hole production and decay at hadron colliders in theories with large extra dimensions and TeV-scale gravity. The main new feature of CHARYBDIS2 is a full treatment of the spin-down phase of the decay process using the angular and energy distributions of the associated Hawking radiation. Also included are improved modelling of the loss of angular momentum and energy in the production process as well as a wider range of options for the Planck-scale termination of the decay. The new features allow us to study the effects of black hole spin and the feasibility of its observation in such theories. The code and documentation can be found at http://projects.hepforge.org/charybdis2/.
