Abstract

A curious feature of black holes which rotate and/or carry electric charge is that as the rotation and/or charge is increased the black hole undergoes a second-order phase transition in which its specific heat changes from negative to positive. Here this phase transition is investigated for black holes in de Sitter-like universes.
