We study dynamical surface gravity in a general spherically symmetric setting using Painleve´Gullstrand coordinates. Our analysis includes several definitions that have been proposed in the past as well as two new definitions adapted to Painleve´-Gullstrand coordinates. Various properties are considered, including general covariance, value at extremality, locality and static limit. We illustrate with specific examples of ‘‘dirty’’ black holes that even for spacetimes possessing a global…

Black hole and naked singularity geometries supported by three-form fields
We investigate static and spherically symmetric solutions in a gravity theory that extends the standard Hilbert–Einstein action with a Lagrangian constructed from a three-form field $$A_{\alpha \beta

We construct models of Einstein and $f(R)$ gravity with two scalar fields, which admit analytical solutions describing time-varying dynamical black holes. Their thermodynamics is investigated in the
Conformally invariant thermodynamics of a Maxwell-Dilaton black hole
The thermodynamics of Maxwell-Dilaton black holes has been extensively studied. It has served as a fertile ground to test ideas about temperature through various definitions of surface gravity. In

We consider vacuum static spherically symmetric solutions in the hybrid metric-Palatini gravity theory, which is a combination of the metric and Palatini f(R) formalisms unifying local constraints at
Embedding Black Holes and Other Inhomogeneities in the Universe in Various Theories of Gravity: A Short Review

Evolving Black Hole Horizons in General Relativity and Alternative Gravity
From the microscopic point of view, realistic black holes are time-dependent and the teleological concept of the event horizon fails. At present, the apparent or trapping horizon seem to be its best
Comment on Hawking radiation and trapping horizons
We consider dynamical black hole formation from a collapsing fluid described by a symmetric and flat FRW metric. Using the Hamilton-Jacobi method the local Hawking temperature for the formed


Dynamical surface gravity
We discuss how the surface gravity can be classically defined for dynamical black holes. In particular, we focus on defining the surface gravity for locally defined horizons and compare a number of
Surface gravity in dynamical spherically symmetric spacetimes.
It turns out that there is a simple connection between the surface gravity, the acceleration of any radially moving observer, and the observed frequency change of the infalling light signal, which gives a practical and simple method of how any geodesic observer can determine surface gravity by measuring only the redshift of theinfalling light wave.

A local Hawking temperature is derived for any future outer trapping horizon in spherical symmetry, using a Hamilton–Jacobi variant of the Parikh–Wilczek tunneling method. It is given by a dynamical
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.
