Title: Nonstationary regime for quasinormal modes of the charged Vaidya metric
Author: Chirenti, C
Saa, A
Abstract: We consider nonstationary spherically symmetric n-dimensional charged black holes with varying mass m(v) and/or electric charge q(v), described by generic charged Vaidya metrics with cosmological constant Lambda in double-null coordinates and perform a comprehensive numerical analysis of the fundamental quasinormal modes (QNM) for minimally coupled scalar fields. We show that the instantaneous quasinormal frequencies exhibit the same sort of nonstationary behavior reported previously for the four-dimensional uncharged case with Lambda = 0. Such property seems to be very robust, independent of the spacetime dimension and of the metric parameters, provided they be consistent with the existence of an event horizon. The study of time-dependent Reissner-Nordstrom black holes allows us to go a step further and quantify the deviation of the stationary regime for QNM with respect to charge variations as well. We also look for signatures in the quasinormal frequencies from the creation of a Reissner-Nordstrom naked spacetime singularity. Even though one should expect the breakdown of our approach in the presence of naked singularities, we show that it is possible, in principle, to obtain some information about the naked singularity from the QNM frequencies, in agreement with the previous results of Ishibashi and Hosoya showing that it would be indeed possible to have regular scattering from naked singularities.
