[1109.6324] Black holes in scalar-tensor gravity

Authors: Thomas P. Sotiriou, Valerio Faraoni

Abstract: Hawking has proven that black holes which are stationary as the endpoint of gravitational collapse in Brans--Dicke theory (without a potential) are no different than in general relativity. We extend this proof to the much more general class of scalar-tensor and f(R) gravity theories, without assuming any additional symmetries.
