Perturbations and weak interactions of black holes

Following an introduction to general relativity, the Einstein field equations, and an overview of recent results on the stability of black holes, I will discuss work in progress towards the construction of singular perturbations of spacetimes via the insertion of small black holes. This aims to provide the first rigorous examples of spacetimes describing the merger of two black holes with extreme mass ratios.
