Slowly Rotating Black Holes and Stars in Horava-Lifshitz Theory of Gravity

In this talk, I shall first give an updated and brief review of the Horava-Lifshitz
theory of gravity, proposed originally by Petr Horava in 2009, and then show that slowly
rotating black holes and stars always exist in all the models of the Horava-Lifshitz gravity
proposed so far. As a result, the theory passes another important consistency checking.
This further clarifies some controversial claims existing in the current literature.
