# Gravitational instability of static spherically symmetric Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet black holes in five and six dimensions

@article{Beroiz2007GravitationalIO, title={Gravitational instability of static spherically symmetric Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet black holes in five and six dimensions}, author={Martin Beroiz and Gustavo Dotti and Reinaldo J. Gleiser}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2007}, volume={76}, pages={024012} }

Five and six dimensional static, spherically symmetric, asymptotically Euclidean black holes, are unstable under gravitational perturbations if their mass is lower than a critical value set by the string tension. The instability is due to the Gauss-Bonnet correction to Einstein's equations, and was found in a previous work on linear stability of Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet black holes with constant curvature horizons in arbitrary dimensions. We study the unstable cases and calculate the values of the…
