The fate of horizons under quantum corrections

  title={The fate of horizons under quantum corrections},
  author={Enrique {\'A}lvarez and Jes{\'u}s G Anero and Eduardo Velasco-Aja},
In this paper, we study the physical effects of deforming the usual Einstein-Hilbert lagrangian with the Goroff-Sagnotti counterterm (the first which is nonvanishing on shell). Only spherically symmetric solutions are discussed. The facts that Schwarzschild’s spacetime is not a solution to the corresponding equations of motion and Birkhoff’s theorem validity are analyzed and some consequences worked out.

Shortcuts to high symmetry solutions in gravitational theories

We apply the Weyl method, as sanctioned by Palais' symmetric criticality theorems, to obtain those—highly symmetric—geometries amenable to explicit solution, in generic gravitational models and

Exact vacuum solution to conformal Weyl gravity and galactic rotation curves

The complete, exact exterior solution for a static, spherically symmetric source in locally conformal invariant Weyl gravity is presented. The solution includes the familiar exterior Schwarzschild

Unruh-DeWitt detector differentiation of black holes and exotic compact objects

We study the response of a static Unruh-DeWitt detector outside an exotic compact object (ECO) with a general reflective boundary condition in 3+1 dimensions. The horizonless ECO, whose boundary is

Structural stability of spherical horizons

This paper is concerned with the structural stability of spherical horizons. By this we mean stability with respect to variations of the second member of the corresponding differential equations,

Not quite black holes as dark matter

Primordial black holes that survive until the present have been considered as a dark matter candidate. In this paper we argue that primordial 2-2-hole remnants provide a more promising and testable

A Remarkable property of the Riemann-Christoffel tensor in four dimensions

Introduction. If the geometry of nature is Riemannian and the field equations of this geometry are controlled by a scale-invariant action principle, there are four a priori possible and algebraically
