# Black holes and stars in the Horava-Lifshitz theory with the projectability condition

@article{Greenwald2010BlackHA, title={Black holes and stars in the Horava-Lifshitz theory with the projectability condition}, author={Jared Greenwald and Antonios Papazoglou and Anzhong Wang}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2010}, volume={81}, pages={084046} }

We systematically study spherically symmetric static spacetimes filled with a fluid in the Horava-Lifshitz theory of gravity with the projectability condition, but without the detailed balance. We establish that when the spacetime is spatially Ricci flat the unique vacuum solution is the de Sitter Schwarzshcild solution, while when the spacetime has a nonzero constant curvature, there exist two different vacuum solutions; one is an (Einstein) static universe, and the other is a new spacetime…
