We study analytically the physical and mathematical properties of spatially regular massless scalar field configurations which are non-minimally coupled to the electromagnetic field of a spherically symmetric charged reflecting shell. In particular, the Klein–Gordon wave equation for the composed charged-reflecting-shell-nonminimally-coupled-linearized-massless-scalar-field system is solved analytically. Interestingly, we explicitly prove that the discrete resonance spectrum $$\{R_{\text {s}}(Q… Expand

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'sExpand
No nonminimally coupled massless scalar hair for spherically symmetric neutral reflecting stars

Stability of highly-charged Reissner-Nordström black holes to charged scalar perturbations
The stability of Reissner-Nordstr\"om black holes under the influence of neutral perturbation fields was proved by Moncrief four decades ago. However, the superradiant scattering phenomenon, whichExpand

Spontaneous scalarisation of electrically charged, asymptotically flat Reissner-Nordstrom black holes (BHs) has been recently demonstrated to occur in Einstein-Maxwell-Scalar (EMS) models. EMS BHExpand

Spontaneous Scalarization of Charged Black Holes.
Numerical simulations in spherical symmetry show, dynamically, that Reissner-Nordström (RN) BHs evolve into a perturbatively stable scalarized BH, and speculate on a possible dynamical role of these nonspherical scalarization BHS. Expand
