We develop the perturbation theory for R^2 string-corrected black hole solutions in d dimensions. After having obtained the master equation and the alpha'-corrected potential under tensorial perturbations of the metric, we study the stability of the Callan, Myers and Perry solution under these perturbations. 



Higher-derivative-corrected black holes: perturbative stability and absorption cross section in heterotic string theory

This work addresses spherically symmetric, static black holes in higher-derivative stringy gravity. We focus on the curvature-squared correction to the Einstein–Hilbert action, present in both

On black holes in string theory

In these lecture notes from Strings `91, I briefly sketch the analogy between two dimensional black holes and the s-wave sector of four dimensional black holes, and the physical interest of the

Stability of Higher-Dimensional Schwarzschild Black Holes

We investigate the classical stability of higher-dimensional Schwarzschild black holes with respect to linear perturbations in the framework of a gauge-invariant formalism for gravitational

Brane world cosmology: Gauge invariant formalism for perturbation

In the present paper the gauge-invariant formalism is developed for perturbations of the brane-world model in which our universe is realized as a boundary of a higher-dimensional spacetime. For the

Linear stability of Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet static spacetimes : Vector and scalar perturbations

We study the stability under linear perturbations of a class of static solutions of Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity in $D=n+2$ dimensions with spatial slices of the form
