Odd – parity negative modes of Einstein – Yang – Mills black holes and sphalerons

  title={Odd – parity negative modes of Einstein – Yang – Mills black holes and sphalerons},
  author={Mikhail S. Volkov},
An analytical proof of the existence of negative modes in the odd–parity perturbation sector is given for all known non-Abelian Einstein–Yang–Mills black holes. The significance of the normalizability condition in the functional stability analysis is emphasized. The role of the odd–parity negative modes in the sphaleron interpretation of the Bartnik–McKinnon solutions is discussed.
