We provide a complete classification of asymptotic quasinormal frequencies for static, spherically symmetric black hole spacetimes in d dimensions. This includes all possible types of gravitational perturbations (tensor, vector and scalar type) as described by the Ishibashi–Kodama master equations. The frequencies for Schwarzschild are dimension independent, while for Reissner–Nordstrom are dimension dependent (the extremal Reissner–Nordstrom case must be considered separately from the non… Expand
