Two first order strongly hyperbolic formulations of scalar-tensor theories of gravity allowing nonminimal couplings (Jordan frame) are presented along the lines of the 3 1 decomposition of spacetime. One is based on the Bona-Massó formulation, while the other one employs a conformal decomposition similar to that of Baumgarte-Shapiro-Shibata-Nakamura. A(More)
Under certain conditions imposed on the energy-momentum tensor, a theorem that characterizes a two-parameter family of static and spherically symmetric solutions to Einstein’s field equations (black holes), is proved. A discussion on the asymptotics, regularity, and the energy conditions is provided. Examples that include the best known exact solutions(More)
abstract It was recently shown by Whinnett & Torres (2004) that the phenomenon of spontaneous scalarization (SC) in compact objects (polytropes) was accompanied also by a spontaneous violation of the weak energy condition (WEC). They claimed that this violation was generic of scalar tensor theories of gravity (STT). Here we argue that this is not the case.(More)

The effect of soiling on PV systems impacts negatively the energy production. This phenomenon is highly dependant on the environmental context and conditions of operation. Indeed dirt, dust, and other air contaminants are site-specific and their accumulation on PV modules depends on the installation configuration. This study, conducted in Santiago de Chile(More)
We analyze the observational constraints on the effective Brans-Dicke parameter and on the temporal variation of the effective gravitational constant within the context of the oscillating G model, a cosmological model based on a massive scalar field non-minimally coupled to gravity. We show that these local constraints cannot be satisfied simultaneously(More)
