New nonspherical black holes and charged black rings

I will review the status of known and conjectured black hole solutions in higher dimensions, and discuss some solution generating techniques. I will present numerical evidence for several new kinds of nonspherical static black hole solutions (supported by conical singularities) and consider the issue of their rotating generalizations. By employing analytic approximations, I will argue that new types of charged black ring solutions in asymptotically flat and AdS spaces should also exist.
