Thermodynamics of asymptotically flat charged black holes in third order Lovelock gravity
Abstract
We present a new class of asymptotically flat charge static solutions in third order Lovelock gravity. These solutions present black hole solutions with two inner and outer event horizons, extreme black holes, or naked singularities provided the parameters of the solutions are chosen suitable. We find that the uncharged asymptotically flat solutions can present black holes with two inner and outer horizons. This kind of solution does not exist in Einstein or GaussBonnet gravity, and it is a special effect in third order Lovelock gravity. We compute temperature, entropy, charge, electric potential, and mass of the black hole solutions, and find that these quantities satisfy the first law of thermodynamics. We also perform a stability analysis by computing the determinant of the Hessian matrix of the mass with respect to its thermodynamic variables in both the canonical and the grandcanonical ensembles, and show that there exists only an intermediate stable phase.

We generalize the quasilocal definition of the stressenergy tensor of Einstein gravity to the case of third order Lovelock gravity, by introducing the surface terms that make the action welldefined. We also introduce the boundary counterterm that removes the divergences of the action and the conserved quantities of the solutions of third order Lovelock gravity with zero curvature boundary at constant t and r. Then, we compute the charged rotating solutions of this theory in n+1 dimensions with a complete set of allowed rotation parameters. These charged rotating solutions present black hole solutions with two inner and outer event horizons,more »

Asymptotically flat radiating solutions in third order Lovelock gravity
In this paper, we present an exact spherically symmetric solution of third order Lovelock gravity in n dimensions which describes the gravitational collapse of a null dust fluid. This solution is asymptotically (anti)de Sitter or flat depending on the choice of the cosmological constant. Using the asymptotically flat solution for n{>=}7 with a powerlaw form of the mass as a function of the null coordinate, we present a model for a gravitational collapse in which a null dust fluid radially injects into an initially flat and empty region. It is found that a naked singularity is inevitably formed whose strengthmore » 
Thermodynamic instability of black holes of third order Lovelock gravity
In this paper, we compute the mass and the temperature of the uncharged black holes of third order Lovelock gravity as well as the entropy using the first law of thermodynamics. We perform a stability analysis by studying the curves of the temperature versus the mass parameter, and find that an intermediate thermodynamically unstable phase exists for black holes with a hyperbolic horizon. This unstable phase for the uncharged topological black holes of third order Lovelock gravity does not exist in lower order Lovelock gravity. We also perform a stability analysis for a spherical, sevendimensional black hole of Lovelock gravitymore » 
Exact results for evaporating black holes in curvaturesquared Lovelock gravity: GaussBonnet greybody factors
Lovelock gravity is an important extension of general relativity that provides a promising framework to study curvature corrections to the Einstein action, while avoiding ghosts and keeping second order field equations. This paper derives the greybody factors for Ddimensional black holes arising in a theory with a GaussBonnet curvaturesquared term. These factors describe the nontrivial coupling between black holes and quantum fields during the evaporation process: they can be used both from a theoretical viewpoint to investigate the intricate spacetime structure around such a black hole, and for phenomenological purposes in the framework of braneworld models with a low Planckmore » 
Topological black holes in LovelockBornInfeld gravity
In this paper, we present topological black holes of third order Lovelock gravity in the presence of cosmological constant and nonlinear electromagnetic BornInfeld field. Depending on the metric parameters, these solutions may be interpreted as black hole solutions with inner and outer event horizons, an extreme black hole or naked singularity. We investigate the thermodynamics of asymptotically flat solutions and show that the thermodynamic and conserved quantities of these black holes satisfy the first law of thermodynamic. We also endow the Ricci flat solutions with a global rotation and calculate the finite action and conserved quantities of these class ofmore »
