# Gravitational interactions of finite thickness global topological defects with black holes

@article{Perivolaropoulos2018GravitationalIO, title={Gravitational interactions of finite thickness global topological defects with black holes}, author={Leandros Perivolaropoulos}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2018} }

It is well known that global topological defects induce a repulsive gravitational potential for test particles. 'What is the gravitational potential induced by black holes with a cosmological constant (Schwarzschild-de Sitter (S-dS) metric) on finite thickness global topological defects?'. This is the main question addressed in the present analysis. We also discuss the validity of Derrick's theorem when scalar fields are embedded in non-trivial gravitational backgrounds. In the context of the…
