CECs, Centro de Estudios Científicos (Center for Scientific Studies) is a private, non-profit corporation, devoted to the development, promotion and diffusion of scientific research. CECs was founded in 1984 as the Center for Scientific Studies of Santiago and has since been directed by physicist Claudio Bunster.

Mass of black holes with matter fields: Lessons from three dimensions

Theoretical physicists at CECs reveal a new three-dimensional black hole, which permit a more general approach to the determination of black hole masses in presence of matter.




The analytical solution developed by CECs physicists was published recently in PHYSICAL REVIEW D, and is part of the research on couplings of matter to black holes. In particular, the study considered the conformal coupling of a spin 0 field, so-called “scalar field” and of a spin 1 field, known as “gauge field”, in spacetimes with negative cosmological constant in three dimensions.
