Black holes play a central role in general relativity and astrophysics. The problem of proving the dynamical stability of the Kerr black hole spacetime, which is describes a rotating black hole in vacuum, is one of the most important open problems in general relativity. Following an introduction to the Kerr geometry, I will introduce some techniques for analyzing the dynamics of particles and fields in the Kerr spacetime. The Carter constant, a 4th constant of the motion for geodesics in the Kerr spacetime, and related geometric structures play a central role in this analysis. Some familiarity with differential geometry will be assumed but the necessary concepts from general relativity will be introduced during the course.
