# Black hole scan

@article{Crisostomo2000BlackHS, title={Black hole scan}, author={J Crisostomo and Ricardo Troncoso and Jorge Zanelli}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2000}, volume={62} }

Gravitation theories selected by requiring that they have a unique anti-de Sitter vacuum with a fixed cosmological constant are studied. For a given dimension d, the Lagrangians under consideration are labeled by an integer k=1,2, . . . ,[(d-1)/2]. Black holes for each d and k are found and are used to rank these theories. A minimum possible size for a localized electrically charged source is predicted in the whole set of theories, except general relativity. It is found that the thermodynamic…
