Although at first sight it may seem an odd idea, I will argue that it is actually quite natural to investigate the properties of General Relativity and its black holes in the limit in which the number of spacetime
dimensions grows to infinity. The theory simplifies dramatically: it reduces to a theory of noninteracting particles, of finite radius but vanishingly
small cross sections, which do not emit nor absorb radiation of any finite frequency. This leads to efficient calculational approaches in an expansion
around this limit, as well as to intriguing connections to lowdimensional stringtheory black holes.
