  author={Felipe Agurto-Sep'ulveda and Mariano Chernicoff and Gaston Giribet and Julio Oliva and Marcelo Oyarzo},
We consider the low-energy effective action of string theory at order α ′ , including R 2 -corrections to the Einstein-Hilbert gravitational action and non-trivial dilaton coupling. By means of a convenient field redefinition, we manage to express the theory in a frame that enables us to solve its field equations analytically and perturbatively in α ′ for a static spherically symmetric ansatz in an arbitrary number of dimensions. The set of solutions we obtain is compatible with asymptotically flat… 



α′-corrected black holes in String Theory

A bstractWe consider the well-known solution of the Heterotic Superstring effective action to zeroth order in α′ that describes the intersection of a fundamental string with momentum and a solitonic

String gravity in D=4

We revisit the four-dimensional theory of gravity that arises from string theory with higherderivative corrections. By compactifying and truncating the ten-dimensional effective action of heterotic

Charged black holes in string theory with Gauss-Bonnet correction in various dimensions

We study charged black hole solutions in Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet theory with the dilaton field which is the low-energy effective theory of the heterotic string. The spacetime is D-dimensional and

α′ corrections of Reissner-Nordström black holes

We study the first-order in α′ corrections to non-extremal 4-dimensional dyonic Reissner-Nordström (RN) black holes with equal electric and magnetic charges in the context of Heterotic Superstring

Null geodesics and shadow of a rotating black hole in extended Chern-Simons modified gravity

The Chern-Simons modification to general relativity in four dimensions consists of adding to the Einstein-Hilbert term a scalar field that couples to the first-class Pontryagin density. In this

The Odd story of α′-corrections

A bstractThe α′-deformed frame-like Double Field Theory (DFT) is a T-duality and gauge invariant extension of DFT in which generalized Green-Schwarz transformations provide a gauge principle that

Black holes in quasi-topological gravity

We construct a new gravitational action which includes cubic curvature interactions and which provides a useful toy model for the holographic study of a three parameter family of four- and

Critical gravity in four dimensions.

The critical theory may be viewed as a four-dimensional analogue of chiral topologically massive gravity, or of critical "new massive gravity" with a cosmological constant, in three dimensions, and find that the on-shell energy for the remaining massless gravitons vanishes.

Superstring Modifications of Einstein's Equations

A new cubic theory of gravity in five dimensions: black hole, Birkhoff's theorem and C-function

We present a new cubic theory of gravity in five dimensions which has second-order traced field equations, analogous to BHT new massive gravity in three dimensions. Moreover, for static spherically
