# (In)stability of D-dimensional black holes in Gauss-Bonnet theory

@article{Konoplya2008InstabilityOD, title={(In)stability of D-dimensional black holes in Gauss-Bonnet theory}, author={R. A. Konoplya and Alexander Zhidenko}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2008}, volume={77}, pages={104004} }

We make an extensive study of evolution of gravitational perturbations of D-dimensional black holes in Gauss-Bonnet theory. There is an instability at higher multipoles l and large Gauss-Bonnet coupling {alpha} for D=5, 6, which is stabilized at higher D. Although a small negative gap of the effective potential for the scalar type of gravitational perturbations exists for higher D and whatever {alpha}, it does not lead to any instability.
