Title: Quasinormal modes of massless scalar fields for charged black holes in the Palatini-type gravity

Abstract

The scrutiny of black hole perturbations and its application to testing gravity theories have been a very crucial frontier in modern physics. In this work, we study the quasinormal modes (QNM) of massless scalar perturbations for various charged black holes in the Palatini-type theories of gravity. Specifically, we consider the Palatini f(R) theory coupled with Born-Infeld nonlinear electrodynamics and the Eddington-inspired-Born-Infeld gravity (EiBI) coupled with Maxwell electromagnetic fields. Special attention is paid to Einstein-Born-Infeld black holes, EiBI charged black holes and Born-Infeld charged black holes within R ± R 2 gravity. These charged black holes are shown to be stable and their quasi-normal frequencies, including the frequencies in the eikonal limit, are calculated by using the Wentzel-Kramers-Brillouin (WKB) method up to the 6th order. Lastly, we compare the results with the Reissner-Nordström charged black hole and prove that both the changes in the gravity sector and the matter sector of the action alter the QNM spectra.
