Disentangling nonabelian discrete quantum hair

Abstract:

Last year, Krauss and Wilczek studied a theory in which a U(1) gauge group broke down to a discrete ZN subgroup. They argued that despite the classical no-hair theorems, the ZN charge carried by a black hole was an observable quantity, "discrete quantum hair". In this note we extend their analysis to the case in which a general continuous gauge group G breaks down to a discrete nonabelian subgroup H. We find that the H-transformation properties of a black hole are (with one minor exception) a...
