Kundt solutions of minimal massive 3D gravity

Deger, Nihat Sadik
Sarıoğlu, Bahtiyar Özgür
We construct Kundt solutions of minimal massive gravity theory and show that, similar to topologically massive gravity (TMG), most of them are constant scalar invariant (CSI) spacetimes that correspond to deformations of round and warped (A) dS. We also find an explicit non-CSI Kundt solution at the merger point. Finally, we give their algebraic classification with respect to the traceless Ricci tensor (Segre classification) and show that their Segre types match with the types of their counterparts in TMG.

Hermitian and gauge-covariant Hamiltonians for a particle in a magnetic field on cylindrical and spherical surfaces
Shikakhwa, M. S.; Chair, N. (IOP Publishing, 2017-01-01)
We construct the Hermitian Schrodinger Hamiltonian of spin-less particles and the gauge-covariant Pauli Hamiltonian of spin one-half particles in a magnetic field, which are confined to cylindrical and spherical surfaces. The approach does not require the use of involved differential-geometrical methods and is intuitive and physical, relying on the general requirements of Hermicity and gauge-covariance. The surfaces are embedded in the full three-dimensional space and confinement to the surfaces is achieved...
Topological black holes and momentum four-vector
Pirinccioglu, Nurettin; Binbay, Figen; AÇIKGÖZ, İRFAN; Aydogdu, Oktay (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2007-07-30)
We consider the energy momentum definition of the Moller in both general relativity and teleparallel gravity to evaluate the energy distribution (due to both matter and fields including gravitation) associated with the topological black holes with a conformally coupled scalar field. Our results show that the energy depends on the mass M and charge Q of the black holes and cosmological constant Lambda. In some special limits, the expression of the energy reduces to the energy of the well-known spacetimes. Th...
Circularly symmetric solutions of minimal massive gravity at its merger point
Sarıoğlu, Bahtiyar Özgür (IOP Publishing, 2019-07-25)
I find all the static circularly symmetric solutions of minimal massive 3D gravity at its merger point, construct stationary versions of these and discuss some of their geometric and physical properties. It turns out that apart from a static hairy black hole, there is also a static gravitational soliton, that has been overlooked in the literature.

We first review the spontaneous Lorentz symmetry breaking in the presence of mass-less gauge fields and infraparticles. This result was obtained long time ago in the context of rigorous quantum field theory (QFT) by Frohlich, Morchio and Strocchi [Ann. Phys. 119, 241 (1979); Phys. Lett. B 89, 61 (1979)] and reformulated by Balachandran and Vaidya (arXiv:1302.3406) using the notion of superselection sectors and directiondependent test functions at spatial infinity for gauge transformations. Inspired by these...
Anti-de Sitter-Wave Solutions of Higher Derivative Theories
GÜRSES, METİN; Hervik, Sigbjorn; Sisman, Tahsin Cagri; Tekin, Bayram (American Physical Society (APS), 2013-09-05)
We show that the recently found anti-de Sitter (AdS)-plane and AdS-spherical wave solutions of quadratic curvature gravity also solve the most general higher derivative theory in D dimensions. More generally, we show that the field equations of such theories reduce to an equation linear in the Ricci tensor for Kerr-Schild spacetimes having type-N Weyl and type-N traceless Ricci tensors.
