Topological black holes in quantum gravity. (English) Zbl 1206.83102

Summary: We derive the black hole solutions with horizons of non-trivial topology and investigate their properties in the framework of an approach to quantum gravity being an extension of Bohm’s formulation of quantum mechanics. The solutions we found tend asymptotically (for large \(r\)) to topological black holes. We also analyze the thermodynamics of these space-times.
