We show that the method used in the Schwarzschild black hole for finding the elementary solution of the electrostatic equation in closed form cannot extend in higher dimensions. By contrast, we prove the existence of static, spherically symmetric geometries with a non-degenerated horizon in which the static scalar equation can be solved in closed form. We… CONTINUE READING
