Curious case of the Buchdahl-Land-Sultana-Wyman-Ibañez-Sanz spacetime

  author={Valerio Faraoni and Sonia Jose and Alexandre Leblanc},

We revisit Wyman’s “other” scalar field solution of the Einstein equations and its Sultana generalization to positive cosmological constant, which has a finite 3-space and corresponds to a special case of a stiff fluid solution proposed by Buchdahl and Land and, later, by Ibañez and Sanz to model relativistic stars. However, there is a hidden cosmological constant and the peculiar geometry prevents the use of this spacetime to model relativistic stars.

New approach to the thermodynamics of scalar-tensor gravity
We further develop the recently proposed thermodynamics of scalar-tensor gravity and investigate its diffusion toward general relativity, seen as a thermal equilibrium state. Describing scalar-tensor


Wyman’s other scalar field solution, Sultana’s generalization, and their Brans-Dicke andR2relatives
Wyman's less known static and spherically symmetric solution of the Einstein-Klein-Gordon equations and its recent generalization for positive cosmological constant are discussed, showing that they
Simultaneous baldness and cosmic baldness and the Kottler spacetime
The uniqueness of the Kottler/Schwarzschild-de Sitter solution of the vacuum Einstein equations with positive cosmological constant is discussed and certain putative alternatives are shown to either
Static spherically symmetric scalar fields in general relativity
In 1957, Bergmann and Leipnik attempted to find static spherically symmetric solutions of a special form of the field equations of general relativity. They were not able to find explicit expressions
Space-Time Structure of a Static Spherically Symmetric Scalar Field
The Einstein equations of the general theory of relativity are solved for an energy-momentum tensor derived from a linear scalar field theory specialized to a static spherically symmetric field of a
Static solutions of the Brans-Dicke equations
It is shown that, given any static solution of the Einstein vacuum equations, a corresponding family of static vacuum solutions of the Brans-Dicke equations can be written down by inspection.

A simple proof of Birkhoff's theorem for cosmological constant
We provide a simple, unified proof of Birkhoff’s theorem for the vacuum and cosmological constant case, emphasizing its local nature. We discuss its implications for the maximal analytic extensions

Modified Gravity and Cosmology
Abstract In this review we present a thoroughly comprehensive survey of recent work on modified theories of gravity and their cosmological consequences. Amongst other things, we cover General
