Birkhoff's Theorem in Lovelock Gravity for General Base Manifolds

18 Sep 2015 Ray Sourya

We extend the Birkhoff's theorem in Lovelock gravity for arbitrary base manifolds using an elementary method. In particular, it is shown that any solution of the form of a warped product of a two-dimensional transverse space and an arbitrary base manifold must be static... (read more)
