Aspects of Black Holes in Gravitational Theories with Broken Lorentz and Diffeomorphism Symmetries

Since Stephen Hawking discovered that black holes emit thermal radiation, black holes have become theoretical laboratories for testing our ideas on quantum gravity. This dissertation is devoted to study of singularities, formation of black holes by gravitational collapse and global structure of spacetime. All our investigations are in the context of a recently discovered approach to quantum gravity which breaks Lorentz and diffeomorphism symmetries at very high energies.
