In this Ph.D. dissertation we study the emergence of black-hole and wormhole solutions in the framework of the Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet (EsGB) theory. Particularly we study a family of theories where the coupling function $f(\phi)$ between the scalar field of the theory and the quadratic Gauss-Bonnet gravitational term has an arbitrary form. At first, we analytically derive that the aforementioned family of theories may evade the constraints imposed by Bekenstein's No-Scalar Hair theorems…

Embedding Gauss-Bonnet Scalarization Models in Higher Dimensional Topological Theories
It is pointed out that families of such functions naturally emerge in the context of Higgs–Chern–Simons gravity models, which are found as dimensionally descents of higher dimensional, purely topological, Chern–Pontryagin non-Abelian densities.

We consider a generalised gravitational theory that contains the Ricci scalar curvature and a scalar field coupled to the higher-derivative, quadratic Gauss-Bonnet gravitational term through an
Topological black holes for einstein-gauss-bonnet gravity with a nonminimal scalar field
We consider the Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity with a negative cosmological constant together with a source given by a scalar field nonminimally coupled in arbitrary dimension D. For a certain
Hairy black holes in Einstein-Weyl gravity
Higher derivative extensions of Einstein's general relativity are commonly viewed as alternative and effective theories of gravity, not just due to the fact that these arise naturally in the string
Post-Newtonian dynamics and black hole thermodynamics in Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet gravity
We study the post-Newtonian dynamics of black hole binaries in Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet gravity theories. To this aim we build static, spherically symmetric black hole solutions at fourth order
Black-Hole Solutions with Scalar Hair in Einstein-Scalar-Gauss-Bonnet Theories
In the context of the Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet theory, with a general coupling function between the scalar field and the quadratic Gauss-Bonnet term, we investigate the existence of regular
Black Holes in the Dilatonic Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet Theory in Various Dimensions IV - Topological Black Holes with and without Cosmological Term
We study black hole solutions in the Einstein gravity with Gauss-Bonnet term, the dilaton and a positive “cosmological constant” in various dimensions. Physically meaningful black holes with a
Radial perturbations of the scalarized Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet black holes
Recently a new class of scalarized black holes in Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet (EGB) theories was discovered. What is special for these black hole solutions is that the scalarization is not due to the
Novel black-hole solutions in Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet theories with a cosmological constant
We consider the Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet theory in the presence of a cosmological constant $\Lambda$, either positive or negative, and look for novel, regular black-hole solutions with a
Gregory-Laflamme instability of black hole in Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet theories
We investigate the stability analysis of a Schwarzschild black hole in Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet theory because the instability of the Schwarzschild black hole without scalar hair implies the
Existence of solutions with a horizon in pure scalar-Gauss-Bonnet theories
We consider the Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet theory and assume that, at regimes of large curvature, the Ricci scalar may be ignored compared to the quadratic Gauss-Bonnet term. We then look for
