Title: Stability of black holes in 4D-regularized Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet black holes

Abstract:

The regularized four-dimensional Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet approach has been recently proposed in [D. Glavan and C. Lin, Phys. Rev. Lett. \textbf{124}, 081301 (2020)] whose formulation is different of the Einstein theory, allowing us to bypass the Lovelock theorem. The action is formulated in higher dimensions (D>4) by adding the Gauss-Bonnet correction to the conventional Einstein-Hilbert action with a cosmological constant. The four-dimensional spacetime is constructed through dimensional regularization by taking the limit D->4. We find explicitly the parametric regions of stability of black holes for the asymptotically flat and (anti-)de Sitter spacetimes by analyzing the time-domain profiles for gravitational perturbations in both vector and scalar channels. In addition to the known eikonal instability, we find the instability due to the positive cosmological constant. On the contrary, asymptotically anti-de Sitter black holes have no other instability than the eikonal one.
