Global Structure of Certain Static Spacetimes ( I )

  title={Global Structure of Certain Static Spacetimes ( I )},
  author={Bin Zhou},
In this paper, static spacetimes with a topological structure of R2 ×N is studied, where N is an arbitrary manifold. Well known Schwarzschild spacetime and Reissner-Nordström spacetime are special cases. It is shown that the existence of a constant and positive surface gravity κ ensures the existence of the Killing horizon, with the cross section homeomorphic to N .
