We consider boson shells in scalar electrodynamics coupled to Einstein gravity. The interior of the shells can be empty space, or harbor a black hole or a naked singularity. We analyze the properties of these types of solutions and determine their domains of existence. We investigate the energy conditions and present mass formulae for the composite black hole-boson shell systems. We demonstrate that these types of solutions violate black hole uniqueness. 

Boson Stars and Boson Shells

In this work we present a broad formalism for a study of the models of black holes, boson stars, boson shells and wormholes. The studies of boson stars and boson shells in a theory involving Scalar

Compact (A)dS boson stars and shells

We present compact Q-balls in an (Anti-)de Sitter background in D dimensions, obtained with a V-shaped potential of the scalar field. Beyond critical values of the cosmological constant compact

Charged Compact Boson Stars in a Theory of Massless Scalar Field

In this work we present some new results obtained in a study of the phase diagram of charged compact boson stars in a theory involving a complex scalar field with a conical potential coupled to a

Structure of rotating charged boson stars

In this work we present full sets of solutions for rotating charged boson stars with different coupling values. By adopting local comoving coordinates, we are able to find expressions for the

Rotating boson stars in five dimensions

We study rotating boson stars in five spacetime dimensions. The boson fields consist of a complex doublet scalar field. Considering boson stars rotating in two orthogonal planes with both angular



Mass of Colored Black Holes

New results pertaining to colored static black hole solutions to the Einstein-Yang-Mills equations are obtained. The isolated horizons framework is used to define the concept of the Hamiltonian

Collapsing and static thin massive charged dust shells in a Reissner-Nordstrom black hole background in higher dimensions

The problem of a spherically symmetric charged thin shell of dust collapsing gravitationally into a charged Reissner–Nordstrom black hole in d space–time dimensions is studied within the theory of

Rotating boson stars and Q-balls

We consider axially symmetric, rotating boson stars. Their flat-space limits represent spinning Q-balls. We discuss their properties and determine their domain of existence. Q-balls and boson stars

Rotating boson stars and Q-balls. II. Negative parity and ergoregions

We construct axially symmetric, rotating boson stars with positive and negative parity. Their flat space limits represent spinning Q-balls. Q-balls and boson stars exist only in a limited frequency

General relativistic boson stars

There is accumulating evidence that (fundamental) scalar fields may exist in nature. The gravitational collapse of such a boson cloud would lead to a boson star (BS) as a new type of a compact

We prove three theorems in general relativity which rule out classical scalar hair of static, spherically symmetric, possibly electrically charged black holes. We first generalize Bekenstein's

Isolated and Dynamical Horizons and Their Applications

A new, quasi-local framework was introduced to analyze diverse facets of black holes in a unified manner that has introduced a more physical setting for black hole thermodynamics, suggested a phenomenological model for hairy black holes, provided novel techniques to extract physics from numerical simulations, and led to new laws governing the dynamics ofblack holes in exact general relativity.

Compact Q -balls and Q -shells in a scalar electrodynamics

We investigate spherically symmetric nontopological solitons in electrodynamics with a scalar field self-interaction U{approx}|{psi}| taken from the complex signum-Gordon model. We find Q-balls for

Spinning Q-balls in the complex signum-Gordon model

Rotational excitations of compact Q-balls in the complex signum-Gordon model in 2+1 dimensions are investigated. We find that almost all such spinning Q-balls have the form of a ring of strictly
