Evasion of No-Hair Theorems in Gauss-Bonnet Theories.

A. Bakopoulos, G. Antoniou, P. Kanti

We consider a general Einstein-scalar-GB theory with a coupling function f(\phi). We demonstrate that black-hole solutions appear as a generic feature of this theory since a regular horizon and an asymptotically-flat solution may be easily constructed under certain assumptions. We also show that the existing no-hair theorems are easily evaded for a plethora of coupling functions f(\phi). On the contrary, regular black-hole solutions do not emerge in the context of a pure scalar-GB theory.
