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.

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.
