# Black holes and wormholes in the Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet generalized theories of gravity

@article{Bakopoulos2020BlackHA, title={Black holes and wormholes in the Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet generalized theories of gravity}, author={Athanasios Bakopoulos}, journal={arXiv: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology}, year={2020} }

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

- PhysicsSymmetry

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.
