3 Beyond Einstein–Maxwell

The purpose of this section is to estimate the generality of the various steps leading to the classification of electrovac black hole space-times. In particular, we shall argue that virtually all theorems displayed in Figure 1View Image cease to exist in the presence of non-Abelian gauge fields. Unfortunately, this implies that we are far from having a classification of all stationary black hole space-times.

 3.1 Spherically symmetric black holes with hair
 3.2 Static black holes without spherical symmetry
 3.3 The Birkhoff theorem
 3.4 The staticity problem
 3.5 Rotating black holes with hair
