# Gauss-Bonnet black holes with nonconstant curvature horizons

@article{Maeda2010GaussBonnetBH, title={Gauss-Bonnet black holes with nonconstant curvature horizons}, author={H. Maeda}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2010}, volume={81}, pages={124007} }

We investigate static and dynamical n({>=}6)-dimensional black holes in Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity of which horizons have the isometries of an (n-2)-dimensional Einstein space with a condition on its Weyl tensor originally given by Dotti and Gleiser. Defining a generalized Misner-Sharp quasilocal mass that satisfies the unified first law, we show that most of the properties of the quasilocal mass and the trapping horizon are shared with the case with horizons of constant curvature. It is… Expand
