Exact black hole solutions?

  1. Jul 20, 2014 #1
    Are there any EXACT solutions similar to Schwarzschild or Kerr in a spacetime which is not asymptotically flat; e.g. FLRW or other cosmological metrics? I am already familiar with the "Swiss cheese" approximations.

    We also have exact solutions for the 4 basic black holes in asymptotically de Sitter or anti de Sitter spacetimes. De Sitter spacetime corresponds to eternal inflation.

    Isn't "Swiss Cheese" exactly what you want? A single hole version of this is the classic paper "Conformal Structure of a Schwarzschild Black Hole Immersed in a Friedman Universe" by Sussman ("General Relativity and Gravitation, Vol. 17, No. 3, 1985) Abstract:
