  journal={Classical and Quantum Gravity},
We review the black hole (BH) solutions of the ghost-free massive gravity theory and its bimetric extension, and outline the main results on the stability of these solutions against small perturbations. Massive (bi)-gravity accommodates exact BH solutions, analogous to those of general relativity (GR). In addition to these solutions, hairy BHs—solutions with no correspondent in GR—have been found numerically, whose existence is a natural consequence of the absence of Birkhoff’s theorem in these… 

Perturbations of Cosmological and Black Hole Solutions in Massive gravity and Bi-gravity

We investigate perturbations of a class of spherically symmetric solutions in massive gravity and bi-gravity. The background equations of motion for the particular class of solutions we are

Black holes and stars in the minimal theory of massive gravity

In this letter, we show that any solution of general relativity (GR) that can be rendered spatially flat by a coordinate change is also a solution of the self-accelerating branch of the minimal

Non-singular black holes in massive gravity: time-dependent solutions

A bstractWhen starting with a static, spherically-symmetric ansatz, there are two types of black hole solutions in dRGT massive gravity: (i) exact Schwarzschild solutions which exhibit no Yukawa

Black holes in the long-range limit of torsion bigravity

We continue the study of spherically symmetric black hole solutions in torsion bigravity, a class of Einstein-Cartan-type gravity theories involving, besides a metric, a massive propagating torsion

Black holes in torsion bigravity

We study spherically symmetric black hole solutions in a four-parameter Einstein-Cartan-type class of theories, called "torsion bigravity". These theories offer a geometric framework (with a metric

Hairy Black Holes in Theories with Massive Gravitons

This is a brief survey of the known black hole solutions in the theories of ghost-free bigravity and massive gravity. Various black holes exist in these theories, in particular those supporting a

Classification and asymptotic structure of black holes in bimetric theory

We study general properties of static and spherically symmetric bidiagonal black holes in Hassan-Rosen bimetric theory by means of a new method. In particular, we explore the behavior of the black

Fundamental fields around compact objects: Massive spin-2 fields, Superradiant instabilities and Stars with dark matter cores

Fundamental bosonic fields of arbitrary spin are predicted by generic extensions of the Standard Model and of General Relativity, and are well-motivated candidates to explain the dark components of

Black Hole Superradiance in f(R) Gravities

We study the superradiance amplification factor (SAF) for a charged massive scalar wave scattering off small and slowly rotating Kerr-Newman black holes in f(R) gravity immersed in asymptotically

Rotating (A)dS black holes in bigravity

In this paper we explore the advantage of using the Kerr-Schild Ansatz in the search of analytic configurations to bigravity. It turns out that it plays a crucial role by providing means to



On Black Holes in Massive Gravity

In massive gravity the so-far-found black hole solutions on Minkowski space happen to convert horizons into a certain type of singularities. Here we explore whether these singularities can be avoided

Massive spin-2 fields on black hole spacetimes: Instability of the Schwarzschild and Kerr solutions and bounds on the graviton mass

Massive bosonic fields of arbitrary spin are predicted by general extensions of the standard model. It has been recently shown that there exists a family of bimetric theories of gravity—including

Instability of black holes in massive gravity

We show that linear perturbations around the simplest black hole solution of massive bi-gravity theories, the bi-Schwarzschild solution, exhibit an unstable mode featuring the Gregory–Laflamme

Exact solutions in massive gravity

Massive gravity is a good theoretical framework to study the modifications of General Relativity. The theory offers a concrete set-up to study models of dark energy, since it admits cosmological

Rotating black holes in massive gravity

We present a solution for rotating black holes in massive gravity. We first give a solution of massive gravity with one dynamical metric. Both metrics of this solution are expressed in the advanced

Hairy black holes in the ghost-free bigravity theory

We study black holes in the recently proposed ghost-free theory with two gravitons, one of which is massive and another is massless. These black holes possess a regular event horizon which is common

Self-accelerating cosmologies and hairy black holes in ghost-free bigravity and massive gravity

We present a survey of the known cosmological and black hole solutions in ghost-free bigravity and massive gravity theories. These can be divided into three classes. First, there are solutions with

Partially massless gravitons do not destroy general relativity black holes

Recent nonlinear completions of Fierz-Pauli theory for a massive spin-2 field include nonlinear massive gravity and bimetric theories. The spectrum of black-hole solutions in these theories is rich,

Strong interactions and exact solutions in nonlinear massive gravity

We investigate strong coupling effects in a covariant massive gravity model, which is a candidate for a ghost-free non-linear completion of Fierz-Pauli. We analyse the conditions to recover general

Stability analysis of black holes in massive gravity: a unified treatment

We consider the analytic solutions of massive (bi)gravity which can be written in a simple form using advanced Eddington-Finkelstein coordinates. We analyse the stability of these solutions against
