Elliptic Function Solutions in Jackiw-Teitelboim Dilaton Gravity.

1. Introduction

It is well known that the Einstein gravitational field equations for a vacuum (with a zero matter tensor) are automatically solved by any metric g on a two-dimensional space-time M. A proof of this fact is given in Section 2 of [1], for example. A nontrivial theory of gravity for such an M was worked out in 1984 by Jackiw and Teitelboim (J-T). This involves in addition to g a scalar field [PHI] on M called a dilaton field; see [2, 3]. The pair (g, [PHI]) is subject to the equations of motion

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (1)

derived from the action integral

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (2)

where R(g) is the constant Ricci scalar curvature of g and the (negative) cosmological constant is [LAMBDA] = -l/[l.sup.2]. In local coordinates ([x.sub.1], [x.sub.2]) on M, the Hessian in (1) is given by

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (3)

where [[GAMMA].sup.k.sub.ij] are the Christoffel symbols (of the second kind) of g [1]. The J-T theory has, for example, the (Lorentzian) black hole solution

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (4)

with coordinates ([x.sub.1], [x.sub.2]) = (T, r), where

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (5)

with M being a black hole mass parameter. Here and throughout, we note that our sign convention for scalar curvature is the negative of that used in [2, 3] and by others in the literature.

The purpose of this paper is the following. For real numbers a, b [not equal to] 0 and for a soliton velocity parameter v, we consider the following metric in the variables ([x.sub.1], [x.sub.2]) = ([tau], [rho]):

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (6)

where sn(x, [kappa]), cn(x, [kappa]), and dn(x, [kappa]) are the standard Jacobi elliptic functions with modulus [kappa]; 0 [less than or equal to] [kappa] [less than or equal to] 1 [4]. We will generally assume that

[absolute value of (v/2a[[kappa].sup.2])] > 1, [kappa] [not equal to] 0. (7)

As will be seen later, this metric is the diagonalization of a metric constructed from solutions r(x, t), s(x, t) of the reaction diffusion system

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (8)

We will explicate the solutions r(x,t), s(x,t) in terms of the elliptic function dn(x, [kappa]). Remarkably, the metric in (6) has constant scalar curvature R(g) = 8/[b.sup.2] so that the first equation in (1) holds. The main work of the paper then is to solve the corresponding system of partial differential equations (the dilaton field equations) in (1), which for g in (6) are

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (9)

Here the cosmological constant is [LAMBDA] = -4/[b.sup.2].

Given the complicated nature of our g, system (9) is necessarily quite difficult to solve directly. Our method is to construct a series of transformations of variables so that g in (6) is transformed to g in (4). Then we can use the simple solution [PHI](T, r) = mr in (5) and other known solutions to work backwards through these transformations of variables to construct [PHI]([tau], [rho]) that satisfies (9). The various details involved, with further remarks that lead to (6), will be the business of Sections 2, 3, and 4.

In the end, we obtain the following main result: the metric in (6) solves the first J-T equation of motion (1). Namely, R(g) = 8/[b.sup.2], as we have remarked. Also three linearly independent solutions of the field equations in (1), namely, of the system of equations (9), are given by

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (10)


[mathematical expression not reproducible], (11)

which we assume is nonzero. Given (7), we shall see in Section 4 that A = 0 only for a = [+ or -](1 - [square root of (1 - [[kappa].sup.2]])v/2[[kappa].sup.2] and moreover that the second expression under the radical (i.e., [v.sup.2]/4 - ...) in (10) is positive. For [kappa] = 1, A = [([v.sup.2]/4 - [a.sup.2]).sup.2] > 0, but we can have A < 0 for some [kappa] < 1. Also for [kappa] = 1 the solutions in (10) reduce to those given in (60), with (6) given by (61).

2. Reaction Diffusion Systems and Derivation of the Metric in (6)

Since metric (6) is one of the main objects of interest, we indicate in this section its derivation. For a constant B, consider the system of partial differential equations

[r.sub.t] - [r.sub.xx] + B[r.sup.2] s = 0, [s.sub.t] + [s.sub.xx] - Br[s.sup.2] = 0 (12)

in the variables (x, t). This system is a special case of the more general reaction diffusion system (RDS),

[r.sub.t] = [d.sub.r] [r.sub.xx] + F(r, s), [s.sub.t] = [d.sub.s] [s.sub.xx] + G (r, s), (13)

which occurs in chemistry, physics, or biology, for example, where [d.sub.r] and [d.sub.s] are diffusion constants and F and G are growth and interaction functions. The key point for us is that from solutions r(x, t) and t) of (12) one can construct a metric g of constant Ricci scalar curvature R(g) = 4B by the following prescription [5-7]:

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (14)

One could also simply start with the definitions in (14), apart from the preceding references that employ Cartan's zweibein formalism [8], and use a Maple program (tensor), for example, to check directly that indeed R(g) = 4B. Our interest is in the choice B = 2/[b.sup.2], where, for real a, b, and v, with a, b [not equal to] 0 as in Section 1, r(x, t), s(x, t) given by

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (15)

are solutions of system (12), which also could be checked directly by Maple. For B = 2/[b.sup.2], (12) is system (8) with solutions (15) promised in Section 1, and g in (14) has the scalar curvature 4B = 8/[b.sup.2] discussed in Section 1. From [4], various formulas like

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (16)

are available. Using prescription (14), one computes that

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (17)

For [mathematical expression not reproducible], so that d[rho] = a(dx - vdt), g can be expressed more conveniently as

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (18)

The goal now is to set up a change of variables (t, [rho]) [right arrow] ([tau], [rho]) so that g in (18) is transformed to (6), where the cross term d[tau]d[rho] does not appear, in comparison with the term dtd[rho] appearing in (18). For this purpose note first, in general, that for

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (19)

the change of variables [tau] = t + [phi](p) gives dt = d[tau] - [phi]' ([rho])d[rho] and d[t.sup.2] = d[[tau].sup.2] - 2[phi]'([rho])d[tau]d[rho] + [phi]'[([rho]).sup.2]d[[rho].sup.2] and

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (19)

The condition that the cross term d[tau]d[rho] does not appear is therefore that [phi]([rho]) satisfies

[phi]' ([rho]) = [C.sub.1]([rho])/2A([rho]). (21)

Apply this to (18):

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (22)

Now, by (16), [mathematical expression not reproducible]. If the term in parenthesis in (22) was zero, this would therefore force the inequality [v.sup.2]/4[a.sup.2] k [less than or equal to] 1. That is, if [v/2a[[kappa].sup.2]] > 1, which is the assumption in (7), then [v.sup.2]/4[a.sup.2] [[kappa].sup.4] > 1 and therefore the denominator term in parenthesis in (22) is nonzero, which means that [phi]' ([rho]) is a continuous function and (22) therefore indeed has a solution [phi]([rho]), with assumption (7) imposed. Also, the coefficient of d[[rho].sup.2] in (20) is

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (23)

where for convenience we write sn, cn, and dn for sn([rho], [kappa]), cn([rho], [kappa]), dn([rho], [kappa]) and Q for

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (24)


[mathematical expression not reproducible], (25)

which is the coefficient of d[[rho].sup.2] in (20) by (23). Then, by (21), (20) reads

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (26)

which is (6). That is, we have verified that the change of variables [tau] = t + [phi]([rho]) with [phi]([rho]) subject to condition (22) (which in fact makes [phi]'([rho]) a continuous function, again assuming (7)) transforms the reaction diffusion metric in (18) to the diagonal metric in (6).

In the special case when the elliptic modulus [kappa] = 1,

sn (x, 1) = tanh (x), cn (x, 1) = dn (x, 1) = sech (x) (27)

and (18) and (6) simplify:

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (28)

which are the line elements (3.12) and (3.14), respectively, in [6]; a here corresponds to the notation k there. Also the cosmological constant [[LAMBDA].sub.0] in [6] corresponds to our 2[LAMBDA] = -8/[b.sup.2] : [b.sup.2] = 8/(-[[LAMBDA].sub.0]). Similarly, r and s in (15) reduce to the dissipative soliton solutions [q.sup.+] and [q.sup.-], respectively, in (2.32) of [6], apart from the factor b. One can also explicitly determine [phi]([rho]) in (22).

3. Transformation of the Metric in (6) to a J-T Black Hole Metric

Now that the existence of the metric in (6) has been described in the context of a reaction diffusion system (namely, (8)), the strategy of this section is to set up a series of changes of variables, as indicated in the introduction, which transforms it to the simpler J-T form (4). Other applications, of independent interest, can flow from this, apart from our main focus to solve system (9). A general method to go from (6) to (4) has been developed by the first named author. Alternatively, one can generalize part of the argument in [6] which leads at least to a Schwarzschild form, as we do here, and then argue a bit more to obtain the J-T form, with the final result being expressed by (39)-(41) below.

Start with the change of variables r = [absolute value of a]dn([rho], [kappa]) so that dr = -[[kappa].sup.2] [absolute value of a]sn([rho], [kappa]) x cn([rho], [kappa])d[rho] by (16) [??]

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (29)

Also by (16),

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (30)


[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (31)

Again by (7), [v.sup.2]/4[a.sup.2] [[kappa].sup.4] > 1 [??] [v.sup.2]/4 > [a.sup.2] [[kappa].sup.4] [??] indeed [r.sup.2.sub.0 > 0. By (29) and (30), we see that we can write (6) as

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (32)

Next let [mathematical expression not reproducible], as in (3.18) of [6], but where our [r.sup.2.sub.0] in (31) generalizes their [r.sup.2.sub.0], and for convenience let

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (33)

in (32). Then g in (32) assumes the form

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (34)

which generalizes the Schwarzschild form (3.19) of [6], since for [kappa] = 1 we have that [alpha] = [beta] = 0 in (33).

For the change of variables t = [A.sub.0] [tau] and [r.sub.-] = [A.sub.0]x with [mathematical expression not reproducible], the Schwarzschild g in (34) goes to

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (35)

which in turn goes to

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (36)

by way of the change of variables t = bT and [r.sub.-] = [r.sub.1]/b. We need one final observation: in general a metric of the form

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (37)

say [A.sub.1] [not equal to] 0, can be transformed to the J-T form (4); namely,

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (38)

by way of the change of variables r = x + [B.sub.1]/2[A.sub.1]. Apply this to (36) with x playing the role of [r.sub.1] there:

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (39)


[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (40)

Using definition (33) for [alpha], [beta] and [r.sup.2.sub.0] = [v.sup.2]/4 - [a.sup.2] [[kappa].sup.4], which is definition (31), one computes that

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (41)

in (39).

4. Derivation of Solutions (10) of the Field Equations (9)

The main result is derived in this section. Namely, we indicate how the series of changes of variables in Section 3 (according to remarks in Introduction) lead to the linearly independent solutions [[PHI].sup.(j)]([tau], [rho]), j = 1,2,3, in (10) of the dilaton field equations in (9). There the metric elements [g.sub.ij] are given by (6). For Q([rho], [kappa]) in (24),

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (42)

and [[nabla].sub.j] [[nabla].sub.j][PHI] are given by (3) for ([x.sub.1], [x.sub.2]) = ([tau], [rho]). The Christoffel symbols [[GAMMA].sup.k.sub.ij] in (3) (which could be computed, e.g., by Maple) will not be needed for the derivation of (10), although they could be used to verify these solutions. Obviously any dilaton solution could be replaced by any nonzero multiple of itself. In the following then, we can disregard such multiples if we wish to.

In addition to the dilaton solution [mathematical expression not reproducible] in (5) for metric (4) in the variables (T, r), there are solutions

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (43)

We work backwards the changes of variables in Section 3 for [[PHI].sup.(1)](T, r) and [[PHI].sup.(2)](T, r), for example, to see how one arrives at the first two solutions [[PHI].sup.(1)] (r, [rho]) and [[PHI].sup.(2)]([tau], [rho]) in (10) in the variables ([tau], [rho]).

Starting with the (39) version of (4), we have [m.sup.2] = [A.sub.1] = 4/[b.sup.2] by (40), with M = -(C1 - [B.sup.2.sub.1]/4[A.sub.1]) given by (41). Here [mathematical expression not reproducible]

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (44)

By the final change of variables r = [r.sub.1] + [B.sub.1]/2[A.sub.1] in Section 3, we see that [A.sub.1] [r.sup.2] = [A.sub.1] [r.sup.2.sub.1] + [B.sub.1] [r.sub.1] + [B.sup.2.sub.1]/4[A.sub.1] [??]

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (45)

The change of variables t = bT and [r.sub.-] = [r.sub.1]/b preceded the change r = [r.sub.1] + [B.sub.1]/2[A.sub.1], so that

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (46)

since [mathematical expression not reproducible]. We had t = [A.sub.0][tau] and [r.sub.-] = [A.sub.0]x for [mathematical expression not reproducible], which gives

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (47)

for the Schwarzschild version of our metric in (34). Next let x = (2[r.sup.2] + [r.sup.2.sub.0])/[r.sup.4.sub.0] to get

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (48)

where we have disregarded the multiple [absolute value of b]/b = [+ or -]1 in (47) and have used sinh([absolute value of b]x/b) = ([absolute value of b]/b)sinh(x). Finally, the first change of variables r = [absolute value of a]dn([rho], [kappa]) in Section 3 gives

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (49)

by definition (40). If we disregard the multiple [absolute value of b]/[r.sup.2.sub.0] in (49) and use [mathematical expression not reproducible] by definitions (31) and (33), we obtain from (49) the first solution

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (50)

in (10). More work is required of course to obtain the second solution there.

First, we note that, by (40) and (41),

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (51)

which is [square root of (A)][tau] in (10). Also, for r = [absolute value of a]dn, dn = dn([rho], [kappa]), the quantity under the other radical in (48) is

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (52)

where, by definition (40),

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (53)

again by definitions (31) and (33). That is, since [beta] = [a.sup.4] (1 - [[kappa].sup.2]) by definition (33), the quantity in (52) (which is under the radical in (48) for r = [absolute value of a]dn) is

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (54)

We let B([rho]) denote the latter bracket here. By (48), (51), and (54), we see that (for now) [[PHI].sup.(2)]([tau], [rho]) = [square root of (B([rho]))]sinh([square root of A)][tau]), if we disregard the multiple [square root of (4[a.sup.2] [b.sup.2]/[r.sup.4.sub.0]) = 2[absolute value of a] [absolute value of b]/[r.sup.2.sub.0].

We find an alternate expression for B([rho]), which is simpler and shows that B([rho]) > 0, given (7). Again we write sn, cn, and dn for sn([rho], [kappa]), cn([rho], [kappa]), dn([rho], [kappa]), and we make use of (16).

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (55)

where we noted in Section 2 that s[n.sup.2] c[n.sup.2]/d[n.sup.2] [less than or equal to] 1. Hence

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (56)

by (7), again as in (31), and we see that B([rho]) > 0, since dn([rho], [kappa]) [not equal to] 0 for [rho] being a real number. Moreover, we have established the desired expression for [[PHI].sup.(2)]([tau], [rho]) in (10). Clearly one can replace the hyperbolic sine in the preceding discussion by the hyperbolic cosine in (43) to obtain the third solution [[PHI].sup.(3)]([tau], [rho]) in (10). To finish other claims made in Section 1, we check that in (11) A =0 only for a = [+ or -](1 - [square root of (1 - [[kappa].sup.2])]v/2[[kappa].sup.2]. We continue to assume (7) of course.

The quartic equation A = 0 has roots a = [+ or -](1 + [square root of (1 - [[kappa].sup.2])]v/2[[kappa].sup.2] and [+ or -](1 - [square root of (1 - [[kappa].sup.2])]v/2[[kappa].sup.2] with [a.sub.2] = (2 - [[kappa].sup.2] + 2[square root of (1 - [[kappa].sup.2])]v/2[[kappa].sup.2]/4[[kappa].sup.4] and (2 - [[kappa].sup.2] - 2[square root of (1 - [[kappa].sup.2])][v.sup.2]/4[[kappa].sup.4], respectively. (7) requires that [a.sup.2] < [v.sup.2]/4[[kappa].sup.4], which forces the inequalities

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (57)

Of which the first one reads 1 - [[kappa].sup.2] + 2[square root of (1 - [[kappa].sup.2])] < 0, with the lefthand side here being [greater than or equal to] 0, a contradiction. That is, we cannot have a = [+ or -](1 + [square root of (1 - [[kappa].sup.2])])v/2[[kappa].sup.2] which means that a = [+ or -](1 -[square root of (1 - [[kappa].sup.2])]/2[[kappa].sup.2]. Also we check that the solutions are linearly independent: assume for constants [c.sub.1], [c.sub.2], [c.sub.3] that

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (58)

Differentiate this equation with respect to [tau] and evaluate the result at ([tau], 0):

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (59)

since dn(0, [kappa]) = 1 and sn(0, [kappa]) = 0. The choice [tau] = 0 then gives [c.sub.2] = 0, since A, v [not equal to] 0, and differentiation of the equation [c.sub.3] [square root of (A)] sinh([square root of (A)][tau])[absolute value of v]/2 = 0 and at [tau] = 0 gives [c.sub.3] = 0. Using again dn(0, [kappa]) = 1 we see by (10) that [mathematical expression not reproducible] and hence also [c.sub.1] = 0.

Note that if v = a = 2 and [kappa] = 1/2, for example, then even though v/2a[[kappa].sup.2] = 2 > 1 (so that (7) is satisfied), we have that A = -12 < 0.

Again in the special case when the elliptic modulus k = 1, we have in (11) that A = [([v.sup.2]/4 - [a.sup.2]).sup.2] > 0 and [square root of (A)] = [v.sup.2]/4 - [a.sup.2] >0 (by (7) or (31)), and B([rho]) = [sech.sup.2] [rho][[v.sup.2]/4 - [a.sup.2] [tanh.sup.2][rho]] = [sech.sup.2][rho][[v.sup.2] - 4[a.sup.2] [tanh.sup.2] [rho]]/4; by [mathematical expression not reproducible]. Here (directly) [tanh.sup.2] [rho] [less than or equal to] 1 [??] [v.sup.2] - 4[a.sup.2][tanh.sup.2] [rho] > 0, again as [v.sup.2] > 4[a.sup.2]. Thus, by (10) and (28),

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (60)

(where we have disregarded the multiple 1/2 in [square root of (B)]([rho])) are dilaton field solutions for the metric

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (61)

The solutions in (60) are also new.

5. Killing Vector Fields for Solutions (6) and (10)

Recall that a smooth vector field Y on an n-dimensional Riemannian manifold (M, g) is called a Killing vector field (or an infinitesimal motion of M) if, for arbitrary smooth vector fields X, Z on M,

Yg (X, Z) = g([YX],Z) + g (X, [Y,Z]) = 0. (62)

If Y = [[summation].sup.n.sub.i=1] [Y.sub.i] ([partial derivative]/[partial derivative][x.sub.i]) is an expression of Y in terms of local coordinates ([x.sub.1], ..., [x.sub.n]) on M, then (62) is equivalent to the system of equations

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (63)

for 1 [less than or equal to] j,k] j, k [less than or equal to] n [8, 9]. In the special (diagonal) case with [g.sub.ij] = 0 for i [not equal to] j and with n = 2, the Killing equations (63) simplify to the following three equations:

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (64)

As was have shown in [10], every solution (g, [PHI]) of the field equations in (1) gives rise to a corresponding Killing vector field Y = Y(g, [PHI]) by way of the local prescription

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (65)

with [[epsilon].sup.ij] being a permutation symbol. Y preserves both g and O. For g in (4) and for the fields [PHI] in (5) and (43), the corresponding Killing vector fields are given in (16), (17), and (18) of [11], for example. Our interest of course is in the case of the three solutions (g, [PHI] (j)) in (10) with g given by (6). By (42), [square root of ([absolute value of det g])] = [a.sup.2][b.sup.2][b.sup.2] [[kappa].sup.2]] [absolute value of sn cn]dn. Since [Y.sub.i] could be replaced by a scalar multiple of itself (e.g., -[Y.sub.i]), we shall disregard the absolute value of sn cn here, and given (9), we shall take l = b/2 (instead of [absolute value of b]/2). For [[epsilon].sup.11] = [[epsilon].sup.22] = 0 and [[epsilon].sup.12] = -1 = -[[epsilon].sup.21], (65) then assumes the generic form

[mathematical expression not reproducible]; (66)

where we take ([x.sub.1], [x.sub.2]) = ([tau], [rho]) in (64).

For the first solution

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (67)

in (10), the computation of the corresponding Killing vector field Y is trivial: by (16) and (66), [Y.sub.1] = 2/b, and of course [Y.sub.2] = 0. Since [partial derivative][g.sub.11]/[partial derivative][tau] = [partial derivative][g.sub.22]/[partial derivative][tau] = 0 by (42), the Killing equations in (64) are satisfied and we see that

Y = [2/b] [[partial derivative]/[partial derivative][tau]] (68) b or

for (g, [[PHI].sup.(1)]). Computations for the other two solutions [[PHI].sup.(2)] and [[PHI].sup.(3)] in (10) are more involved. The result is the following, where again

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (69)

in definition (11).

For [[PHI].sup.(2)]([tau], [rho]),

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (70)

For [[PHI].sup.(3)]([tau], [rho]) one has quite similar formulas for [Y.sub.1] and [Y.sub.2] except that (as expected) the roles of the hyperbolic sine and hyperbolic cosine in (70) are interchanged: the factor sinh([square root of (A)][tau]) for [Y.sub.1] in (70) is replaced by cosh([square root of (A)][tau]), and, similarly, cosh([square root of (A)][tau]) for [Y.sub.2] in (70) is replaced by sinh([square root of (A)][tau]).

One can also find the following alternative expressions for the Killing vector field components for [[PHI].sup.(2)]([tau], [rho]):

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (71)

for A in (11). Corresponding alternative expressions for [[PHI].sup.(3)]([tau], [rho]) are similar to (71) except that the roles of the hyperbolic sine and hyperbolic cosine are interchanged. By a direct check one sees that the dilaton fields computed in (10) are indeed invariant along the corresponding Killing directions. That is, they satisfy

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (72)

for each of i = 1,2,3 as we indicated in the sentence following (65) about Y preserving [PHI].

6. Some Closing Remarks

For the metric g in (6), whose derivation was discussed in Section 2, we have obtained as a main result explicit linearly independent solutions [[PHI].sup.(j)], j = 1,2,3, in (10) of the corresponding system of dilaton field equations in (9). We have also computed the associated Killing vector fields Y(g, [[PHI].sup.(j)]) that leave both g and [[PHI].sup.(j)] invariant; see (68), (70), and (71) and the remarks that follow (70) and (71). The dilaton fields simplify to the expressions given in (60) in the special case when the elliptic modulus [kappa] is 1, and g simplifies to the expression given in (61).

For Q([rho], [kappa]) defined in (24), it was shown in the short argument following (22) that if Q([rho], [kappa]) = 0 for some [rho], then necessarily [v.sup.2]/4[a.sup.2][[kappa].sup.4] [less than or equal to] 1:

[absolute value of v] [less than or equal to] 2 [absolute value of a] [[kappa].sup.2] (73)

in contrast to the standing assumption (7). To better understand the meaning of this inequality note first by (42) that Q([rho], [kappa]) = 0 [??] [g.sub.11] = 0 so g exhibits a horizon singularity at

[mathematical expression not reproducible] (74)

again by (24). Keep in mind that v is a velocity parameter of a dissipative soliton (also called a dissipaton) as in (15), for example, especially for [kappa] = 1, as we have remarked at the end of Section 2. Inequality (73) is the statement therefore that for an arbitrary elliptic modulus [kappa], with 0 < [kappa] [less than or equal to] 1, the velocity of a black hole dissipaton cannot exceed the limiting value [mathematical expression not reproducible]. This statement was deduced in [6, 7], for example, in the special (but important) case of [kappa] = 1.

In Section 3, by a series of explicit transformations of variables, g moreover was transformed to a Jackiw-Teitelboim black hole metric [g.sub.J-T] of the simple form (4), namely, to [g.sub.J-T] given by (39), with accompanying data given by (40) and (41). Here again assumption (7) was imposed. An advantage of parameterization (39) is that, for example, simple formulas exist [10, 12] for thermodynamic quantities such as the Hawking temperature [T.sub.H] and black hole entropy S.

We point out, for the record, that the general solutions of all 2D dilaton gravity models are known. For example, see Section 3 of the paper [13] of Klosch and Strobl. However (again), we have constructed very explicit elliptic solutions that do not follow directly from the results of [13].

Reviewing [14,15], we have added some final remarks that provide a brief review of a connection of the J-T model to cold plasma physics. This connection is facilitated by way of a resonant nonlinear Schrodinger (RNLS) equation.

The authors in [14] consider a system of nonlinear equations that describe the dynamics of two-component cold collisionless plasma in the presence of an external magnetic field B. For uniaxial plasma propagation, this system is reduced to a system that describes the propagation of nonlinear magnetoacoustic waves in cold plasma with a transverse magnetic field. By way of a shallow water approximation of the latter system, a reduction of it to a RNLS equation of the form

is achieved. Here x' = [beta]x and t' = [beta]t are rescaled space and time variables, and B has an expression in terms of a suitable power series expansion in the parameter [[beta].sup.2]. [psi] has the form [psi] = [square root of ([rho])][e.sup.-iS], where S(x', t') is a velocity potential and [rho] is the mass density of the plasma. Also note the remarks in [15]. A key point of interest for us is that, for

[mathematical expression not reproducible], (76)

in the variables ([mathematical expression not reproducible]), the reaction diffusion (RD) system (12) is satisfied; r and s are denoted by [e.sup.(+)] and [e.sup.(-)] in [14]. On page 186 of [1], it is shown that, conversely, given solutions r >0 and s <0 of the RD system (12), one can naturally construct a RNLS solution. By (15), with b = 2[beta] by (76), we can take

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (77)

All of this means that we can apply prescription (14) to construct a metric [g.sub.plasma] of constant Ricci scalar curvature [mathematical expression not reproducible], as we did in (18), where the notation t, [rho] there is now taken to mean [tau], a(x' - v[tau]). Moreover, our results show that [g.sub.plasma] can be transformed to a J-T blackhole metric of the form in (4). Thus we can account for a J-T black hole connection in cold plasma physics. Our results also provide elliptic solutions of the corresponding dilaton field equations.
