Quasi-normal Modes of Schwarzschild Anti-de Sitter Black Holes : Electromagnetic and Gravitational Perturbations

  title={Quasi-normal Modes of Schwarzschild Anti-de Sitter Black Holes : Electromagnetic and Gravitational Perturbations},
  author={Vitor Cardoso and Jos{\'e} P. S. Lemos}
We study the quasi-normal modes (QNM) of electromagnetic and gravitational perturbations of a Schwarzschild black hole in an asymptotically Anti-de Sitter (AdS) spacetime. Some of the electromagnetic modes do not oscillate, they only decay, since they have pure imaginary frequencies. The gravitational modes show peculiar features: the odd and even gravitational perturbations no longer have the same characteristic quasinormal frequencies. There is a special mode for odd perturbations whose… CONTINUE READING
