### Linearised Second Law for Higher Curvature Gravity and Non-Minimally Coupled Vector Fields

CMSA Room G10 CMSA, 20 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA, United StatesGeneral Relativity Seminar Speaker: Zihan Yan, Cambridge University Title: Linearised Second Law for Higher Curvature Gravity and Non-Minimally Coupled Vector Fields Abstract: Expanding the work of arXiv:1504.08040, we show that black holes obey a second law for linear perturbations to bifurcate Killing horizons, in any covariant higher curvature gravity coupled to scalar and vector fields. The vector […]
