Title: Existence of apparent horizon and size of extra dimensions.
Abstract: In 1972, Kip Thorne conjectured a formation of a black hole due to an inequality between the mass of a bounded region and its size. In this talk, I review some recent results regarding this conjecture and its application to the size of the geometry of extra dimensions.
