In classical general relativity, a black hole is a solution of Einstein's equations with a region of spacetime which is causally disconnected from the asymptotic region at infinity. The boundary of such a region is called the "event horizon." The spacetime around the simplest black hole in three space dimensions is described by the Schwarzschild metric.
