Monopole Black Hole in Stringy gravity.

The possible transition of large mass magnetic monopole solutions to monopole black hole solutions in Yang-Mills-Higgs theory with spontaneous symmetry breaking (SSB) coupled to the low energy

Exact black-hole solution with self-interacting scalar field

Einstein gravity minimally coupled to a self-interacting scalar field is investigated in the static and isotropic situation. We explicitly construct in partially closed form a new black-hole solution

Global properties of static spherically symmetric charged dilaton spacetimes with a Liouville potential.

We derive the global properties of static spherically symmetric solutions to the Einstein-Maxwell-dilaton system in the presence of an arbitrary exponential dilaton potential. We show that – with the

We derive the global properties of static spherically symmetric solutions to the Einstein-Maxwell-dilaton system in the presence of an arbitrary exponential dilaton potential. We show that -- with

Holographic phase transition from dyons in an AdS black hole background

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

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

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

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.

Magnetic monopoles and gravitational collapse

A gravitational analogue of the Bogomolny-Prasad-Sommerfield monopole is defined. The momentarily static initial data configuration is proven to contain no trapped surfaces.

I show that the only axisymmetric, static, asymptotically flat multi-blackhole configurations, each with the same charge to mass ratio, are the degenerate solutions of Hartle & Hawking (1972).

Erratum: Magnetic-monopole solution of non-Abelian gauge theory in curved spacetime

A magnetic-monopole solution of a non-Abelian gauge theory as proposed by 't Hooft is studied in curved spacetime. Einstein's equations are solved for the case of a magnetic point charge yielding a

Black holes in a magnetic universe

We present a general procedure for transforming asymptotically flat axially symmetric solutions of the Einstein–Maxwell equations into solutions resembling Melvin’s magnetic universe. Specific

Nonexistence theorems for Yang-Mills fields outside the black hole of the Schwarzschild spacetime

In this Letter, the authors prove some nonexistence theorems for regular static Yang-Mills fields outside the black hole of the Schwarzschild spacetime under certain boundary conditions.

A new uniqueness theorem for charged black holes

It is shown that the unique non-degenerate electrovac static black hole metrics are the Reissner-Nordstrom family. The author does not assume the connectedness of the event horizon. Thus static

Bogomolny-type equations in curved spacetime

We show that the field equations of a Yang-Mills-Higgs system in a static curved background metric are solved by the static solutions of first-order equations if the metric satisfies a suitable

Gravitating 't Hooft Monopoles

The 't Hooft magnetic monopole solution of the SO(3) Higgs model generates, when coupled to gravity, a geometry which for large distances is of the Reissner--Nordstroem form corresponding to a
