Charged massive particle at rest in the field of a ReissnerNordstroem black hole
Abstract
The interaction of a ReissnerNordstroem black hole and a charged massive particle is studied in the framework of perturbation theory. The particle backreaction is taken into account, studying the effect of general static perturbations of the hole following the approach of Zerilli. The solutions of the combined EinsteinMaxwell equations for both perturbed gravitational and electromagnetic fields to first order of the perturbation are exactly reconstructed by summing all multipoles, and are given explicit closed form expressions. The existence of a singularityfree solution of the EinsteinMaxwell system requires that the chargetomass ratios of the black hole and of the particle satisfy an equilibrium condition which is in general dependent on the separation between the two bodies. If the black hole is undercritically charged (i.e. its chargetomass ratio is less than one), the particle must be overcritically charged, in the sense that the particle must have a chargetomass ratio greater than one. If the chargetomass ratios of the black hole and of the particle are both equal to one (so that they are both critically charged, or 'extreme'), the equilibrium can exist for any separation distance, and the solution we find coincides with the linearization in the present context of the wellknownmore »

The properties of the electric field of a twobody system consisting of a ReissnerNordstroem black hole and a charged massive particle at rest have recently been analyzed in the framework of first order perturbation theory following the standard approach of Regge, Wheeler, and Zerilli. In the present paper we complete this analysis by numerically constructing and discussing the lines of force of the ''effective'' electric field of the sole particle with the subtraction of the dominant contribution of the black hole. We also give the total field due to the black hole and the particle. As the black hole becomesmore »

Quasinormal modes of a massless charged scalar field on a small ReissnerNordstroemantide Sitter black hole
We investigate quasinormal modes of a massless charged scalar field on a small ReissnerNordstroemantide Sitter (RNAdS) black hole both with analytical and numerical approaches. In the analytical approach, by using the small black hole approximation (r{sub +}<<L), we obtain the quasinormal mode frequencies in the limit of r{sub +}/L{yields}0, where r{sub +} and L stand for the black hole event horizon radius and the AdS scale, respectively. We then show that the small RNAdS black hole is unstable if its quasinormal modes satisfy the superradiance condition and that the instability condition of the RNAdS black hole in the limit ofmore » 
Dynamical evolution of a scalar field coupling to Einstein's tensor in the ReissnerNordstroem black hole spacetime
We study the dynamical evolution of a scalar field coupling to Einstein's tensor in the background of a ReissnerNordstroem black hole. Our results show that the coupling constant {eta} imprints in the wave dynamics of a scalar perturbation. In the weak coupling, we find that with the increase of the coupling constant {eta} the real parts of the fundamental quasinormal frequencies decrease and the absolute values of imaginary parts increase for fixed charge q and multipole number l. In the strong coupling, we find that for l{ne}0 the instability occurs when {eta} is larger than a certain threshold value {eta}{submore » 
Blackhole normal modes: A WKB approach. III. The ReissnerNordstroem black hole
Complex frequencies of the normal modes of the ReissnerNordstroem black hole are computed by two independent methods. The first is a highorder WKB approach devised by Schutz and Will and extended by Iyer and Will for the Schwarzschild case. The second is direct numerical integration using a method developed by Chandrasekhar and Detweiler, thereby extending earlier results of Gunter. The WKB results agree with the numerical ones with an error less than 1% for the lowestorder modes. For somewhat higher orders, the numerical techniques fail but the WKB method continues to give eigenfrequencies that should be reasonably accurate. 
Stationary electromagnetic fields around black holes. III. General solutions and the fields of current loops near the ReissnerNordstroem black hole
The stationary multipole solutions of the EinsteinMaxwell equations representing coupled electromagnetic and gravitational perturbations of the extreme ReissnerNordstroem black hole are simple rational functions of the radial coordinate. These solutions are used to construct the axially symmetric field of a current loop in the equatorial plane and of a small current loop on the polar axis. The magnetic lines of force are calculated numerically and exhibited graphically. The field representing a general ReissnerNordstroem black hole in an asymptotically uniform magnetic field is also given, and its relation to the exact solutions of Ernst describing KerrNewman black holes in Melvin's magneticmore »
