ABSTRACT THE discovery of pulsars and the general conviction that they are
neutron stars resulting from gravitational collapse have strengthened
the belief in the possible presence of Schwarzschild black-holes-or
Schwarzschild horizons-in nature, the latter being the ultimate stage in
the progressive spherical collapse of a massive star. The stability of
these objects, which has been discussed in a recent report1,
ensures their continued existence after formation. Inasmuch as the
infinite redshift associated with it and its behaviour as a one-way
membrane make the Schwarzschild horizon at once elusive and intriguing,
it is important to explore theoretically all possible modes in which the
presence of such a black-hole manifests itself. In what follows, we
present a partial summary of some results obtained from an investigation
of the scattering of gravitational waves by a Schwarzschild horizon.

    ABSTRACT: We evaluate the massless scalar field quasi-normal frequencies of Schwarzschild black hole in the quintessence background, using the third-order WKB approximation method. Results show that quintessence decreases the oscillation frequency while increases the damping time of the scalar field. Moreover, with the increase of the quintessential state parameter ω q (the ratio of the pressure to the energy density), the imaginary parts’ absolute values of the quasi-normal frequencies increase monotonously. This indicates that the scalar field decays more rapidly in the larger ω q quintessence state, which agrees with the cases of other perturbation fields for black holes in the quintessence background. For the special case of SdS black hole ( ω q =‑1), the oscillation frequency and the damping rate increase with the decrease of the normalization factor c (corresponding to the cosmological constant Λ in SdS black hole).

    ABSTRACT: The Hawking radiation for massless spin-2 fields is numerically studied when the spacetime background is (4+n)-dimensional Schwarzschild black hole phase. In order to check the validity of the Emparan–Horowitz–Myers argument, black holes radiate mainly on the brane, we assume that the radial equation for the massless spin-2 fields propagating on the brane obeys the master equation approximately. The transmission coefficient is computed explicitly by making use of the Hawking–Hartle theorem. It is shown that the total emission rates into the bulk are dominant compared to the rates on the visible brane when n ≥ 3. However, the bulk-to-brane relative emissivities per degree of freedom always remain O(1) roughly. The experimental significance of these results in the production of mini-black holes in future colliders is briefly discussed.

    ABSTRACT: We investigated quasinormal frequencies (QNFs) in black brane with hyperscaling violating by using the continued fractions method. We calculate QNF of massless scalar field and electromagnetic field both with zero spatial momentum, find that QNFs have negative imaginary frequency suggesting black brane with hyperscaling violation is stable under those perturbations.
