Brans-Dicke gravity and the capture of stars by black holes: some asymptotic results

Dec 11, 2004

In the context of star capture by a black hole, a new noticeable difference between Brans-Dicke theory and general relativity gravitational radiation is pointed out.

This feature stems from the non-stationarity of the black hole state, barring Hawking's theorem.
