The Darboux transformation between ordinary differential equations is a 19th century technique that has seen wide use in quantum theory for producing exactly solvable potentials for the Schrodinger equation with specific spectral properties. In this paper we show that the same transformation appears in black hole theory, relating, for instance, the Zerilli and Regge-Wheeler equations for axial and polar Schwarzschild perturbations. The transformation reveals these two equations to be…

Starting from the infinite set of possible master equations for the perturbations of Schwarzschild black holes, with master functions linear in the metric perturbations and their first-order

Effective Field Theory for the perturbations of a slowly rotating black hole
Abstract We develop the effective theory for perturbations around black holes with scalar hair, in two directions. First, we show that the scalar-Gauss-Bonnet theory, often used as an example

In this work we study whether parametrized spherically symmetric black hole solutions in metric theories of gravity can appear to be isospectral when studying perturbations. From a theory agnostic

Detecting gravitational waves from coalescing compact binaries allows us to explore the dynamical, nonlinear regime of general relativity and constrain modifications to it. Some of the
