We prove that the electromagnetic field in a -dimensional spacetime necessarily inherits the symmetries of the spacetime metric in a large class of generalized Einstein–Maxwell theories. The Lagrangians of the studied theories have general diff-covariant gravitational part and include both the gravitational and the gauge Chern–Simons terms.

Stationary spacetimes with time-dependent real scalar fields
In 1981 Wyman classified the solutions of the Einstein–Klein–Gordon equations with static spherically symmetric spacetime metric and vanishing scalar potential. For one of these classes, the scalarExpand

Abstract We study the response of a classical massless minimally coupled scalar to a static point scalar charge on de Sitter. By considering explicit solutions of the problem we conclude that – evenExpand

We present the first symmetry inheritance analysis of fields nonminimally coupled to gravity. In this work we are focused on the real scalar field $\phi$ with nonminimal coupling of the formExpand
Black hole thermodynamics in the presence of nonlinear electromagnetic fields
As the interaction between the black holes and highly energetic infalling charged matter receives quantum corrections, the basic laws of black hole mechanics have to be carefully rederived. Using theExpand

Massive gravity in three dimensions.
The extension to massive N-extended supergravity is discussed, the "cosmological" extension that admits an anti-de Sitter vacuum is presented, and a more general model propagates the two spin-2 helicity states with different masses. Expand
