ABSTRACT We construct new solutions of the vacuum Einstein field equations with cosmological constant. These solutions describe spacetimes with non-trivial topology that are asymptotically dS, AdS or flat. For a negative cosmological constant these solutions are NUT charged generalizations of the topological black hole solutions in higher dimensions. We also point out the existence of such NUT charged spacetimes in odd dimensions and we explicitly construct such spaces in 5 and 7 dimensions. The existence of such spacetimes with non-trivial topology is closely related to the existence of the cosmological constant. Finally, we discuss the global structure of such solutions and possible applications in string theory. Comment: latex, 30 pages, added references

    ABSTRACT: These short notes are devoted to the discussions of the “17th international conference of General relativity and gravitation” devoted to the exact solutions of some mathematical models based on the Einstein field equations. Some exact solutions of special interest are studied for black holes, radiative spacetimes, cylindrical models etc. The author shows several contributions devoted to different topics. We write the names of contributors as well as some of the topics being of interest: E. Ruiz, W. S. Bonnor, (Kramer-Neugebauer spacetime), C. Klein (disks of matter around black holes), J. Louko, V. Pravda, A. Barnes, L. Wylleman, H. S. Reall, R. Mann, A. N. Aliev, G. Clément (black holes in topologically massive gravity), P. Krtou’s (gravitational waves), M. Ortaggio, M. P. Machado Ramos, J. Griffiths, J. Bicák (cylindrically and spherically symmetric solutions), J. Ger’sl, D. A. Konkowski, F. C. Mena, G. Fodor, A. A. Garcia (Einstein-Maxwell solutions), I. Eriksson, J. D. Finley (symmetries), E. G. L. R. Vaz, G. S. Hall, J. A. Valiente Kroon, R. Vera (cosmology), V. M. Villalba, R. Lazkoz, L. Fernàndez-Jambrina.

    ABSTRACT: We consider a finite action for a higher dimensional Taub–NUT/Bolt–(A)dS space via the so-called counter term subtraction method. In the limit of high temperature, we show that the Cardy–Verlinde formula holds for the Taub–Bolt–AdS metric and for the specific dimensional Taub–NUT–(A)dS metric, except for the Taub–Bolt–dS metric.

    ABSTRACT: We construct new charged solutions of the Einstein Maxwell field equations with cosmological constant. These solutions describe the nut-charged generalisation of the higher-dimensional Reissner Nordström spacetimes. For a negative cosmological constant these solutions are the charged generalizations of the topological nut-charged black hole solutions in higher dimensions. Finally, we discuss the global structure of such solutions and possible applications.
