# Stability of Gauss-Bonnet black holes in Anti-de-Sitter space-time against scalar field condensation

@article{Brihaye2011StabilityOG, title={Stability of Gauss-Bonnet black holes in Anti-de-Sitter space-time against scalar field condensation}, author={Yves Brihaye and Betti Hartmann}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2011}, volume={84}, pages={084008} }

We study the stability of static, hyperbolic Gauss-Bonnet black holes in (4+1)-dimensional anti-de Sitter (AdS) space-time against the formation of scalar hair. Close to extremality the black holes possess a near-horizon topology of AdS{sub 2}xH{sup 3} such that within a certain range of the scalar field mass one would expect that they become unstable to the condensation of an uncharged scalar field. We confirm this numerically and observe that there exists a family of hairy black hole… Expand
