Static Spherically Symmetric Black Holes in Weak f(T)-Gravity

  title={Static Spherically Symmetric Black Holes in Weak f(T)-Gravity},
  author={Christian Pfeifer and Sebastian Schuster},
With the advent of gravitational wave astronomy and first pictures of the “shadow” of the central black hole of our milky way, theoretical analyses of black holes (and compact objects mimicking them sufficiently closely) have become more important than ever. The near future promises more and more detailed information about the observable black holes and black hole candidates. This information could lead to important advances on constraints on or evidence for modifications of general relativity…

Scalarized black holes in teleparallel gravity

Black holes play a crucial role in the understanding of the gravitational interaction. Through the direct observation of the shadow of a black hole by the event horizon telescope and the detection of

Black holes in f(T,B) gravity: exact and perturbed solutions

Spherically symmetric solutions of theories of gravity built one fundamental class of solutions to describe compact objects like black holes and stars. Moreover, they serve as starting point for the

A quick guide to spacetime symmetry and symmetric solutions in teleparallel gravity

The notion of spacetime symmetry is essential to describe gravitating physical systems like planets, stars, black holes, or the universe as a whole, since they possess, at least to good

Black Hole Shadows : How to Fix the Extended Gravity Theory

The first images of black hole shadows open new possibilities to develop modern extended gravity theories. We discuss the shadow calculations in non-rotating case both when g11 = −g 00 and g11 6= −g

Black hole solutions in scalar-tensor symmetric teleparallel gravity

It is proved that by imposing that the metric functions are the reciprocal of each other (grr = 1/gtt ), the f(Q) gravity theory reduces to the symmetric teleparallel equivalent of general relativity (plus a cosmological constant), and the metric takes the (Anti)de-Sitter-Schwarzschild form.

Deflection angle and lensing signature of covariant 𝖿(𝖳) gravity

We calculate the deflection angle, as well as the positions and magnifications of the lensed images, in the case of covariant f(T) gravity. We first extract the spherically symmetric solutions for

Thick accretion disk configurations in the Born-Infeld teleparallel gravity

The main goal of this paper is to investigate one of the important astrophysical systems, namely Thick accretion disks, in the background of the spherically symmetric solution in Born-Infeld

We study various forms of diagonal tetrads that accommodate Black Hole solutions in f ( T ) gravity with certain symmetries. As is well-known, vacuum spherically symmetric diagonal tetrads lead to

Issues of Lorentz-invariance in f(T) gravity and calculations for spherically symmetric solutions

The f(T) gravity is nowadays being widely used for cosmological model building, as well as for constructing spherically symmetric solutions. In its classical pure tetrad formulation it violates the

In the context of Born–Infeld gravity theories we report the existence of a regular black hole interior representing a spherically symmetric vacuum solution of the theory. It reduces to the

The regular black hole solution arising as a spherically symmetric vacuum solution of Born–Infeld gravity possesses an asymptotic interior structure which is very well described by a four-dimensional
