About the book

Understanding how the universe came into being, discovering the celestial bodies in the universe, and examining their relationship with each other has been a subject that has been curious for centuries. Black holes have a special importance in celestial bodies in the universe. The existence of black holes has been accepted by various theoretical and experimental studies. In order to prove the existence and appearance of black holes, many researchers from various countries gathered around common projects. Recently, studies have resulted and an image of the black hole has been obtained. Efforts are underway for the proper design of telescopes and interferometers used to capture the best view of black holes. There are positive convictions that the mystery on the black holes will be removed by LIGO and VIRGO observations and NASA-ESA joint efforts. This book aims to provide information about the latest developments in black holes and what common steps should be taken in this regard.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
