We construct a dyon solution for a Yang-Mills-Higgs theory in a 4 dimensional Schwarzschild-anti-de Sitter black hole background with temperature T. We then apply the AdS/CFT correspondence to…

### Stationary Black Holes: Uniqueness and Beyond

- PhysicsLiving reviews in relativity
- 2012

Developments in the subject are reviewed and the uniqueness theorem for the Einstein-Maxwell system is discussed in light of the high degree of symmetry displayed by vacuum and electro-vacuum black-hole spacetimes ceases to exist in self-gravitating non-linear field theories.

### A no-go on strictly stationary spacetimes in four/higher dimensions

- Physics
- 2012

We show that strictly stationary spacetimes cannot have non-trivial configurations of form fields/complex scalar fields and then the spacetime should be exactly Minkowski or anti-deSitter spacetimes…

### Stationary Black Holes: Uniqueness and Beyond

- PhysicsLiving reviews in relativity

The spectrum of known black hole solutions to the stationary Einstein equations has increased in an unexpected way during the last decade and the uniqueness theorem for the Einstein-Maxwell system is discussed.
