# Universes encircling five-dimensional black holes

@article{Seahra2003UniversesEF, title={Universes encircling five-dimensional black holes}, author={Sanjeev S Seahra and Paul S. Wesson}, journal={Journal of Mathematical Physics}, year={2003}, volume={44}, pages={5664-5680} }

We clarify the status of two known solutions to the five-dimensional vacuum Einstein field equations derived by Liu, Mashhoon, and Wesson (LMW) and Fukui, Seahra, and Wesson (FSW), respectively. Both 5-metrics explicitly embed four-dimensional Friedman–Lemaitre–Robertson–Walker cosmologies with a wide range of characteristics. We show that both metrics are also equivalent to five-dimensional topological black hole (TBH) solutions, which is demonstrated by finding explicit coordinate…
