Abstract We show that the nonlinear σ-model in an asymptotically A d S 3 space-time admits a novel local symmetry. The field action is assumed to be quartic in the nonlinear σ-model fields and minimally coupled to gravity. The local symmetry transformation simultaneously twists the nonlinear σ-model fields and changes the space-time metric, and it can be used to map the extremal BTZ black hole to infinitely many hairy black hole solutions.

New black hole solutions with hair
Abstract We present new black hole solutions which provide counter examples to the “no hair” conjecture for non-linear matter fields. These have been found numerically for the non-linear sigma-modelExpand
Black holes and asymptotics of 2 + 1 gravity coupled to a scalar field
We consider $2+1$ gravity minimally coupled to a self-interacting scalar field. The case in which the fall-off of the fields at infinity is slower than that of a localized distribution of matter isExpand

Topological aspect of black hole with Skyrme hair
Based on the ϕ-mapping topological current theory, we show that the presence of the black hole leaves fractional baryon charge outside the horizon in the Einstein–Skyrme theory. A topological currentExpand
