We show that the asymptotic large $r$ limit of all Lovelock vacuum and electrovac solutions with $\Lambda$ is always the Einstein solution in $d \geq 2n+1$ dimensions. It is completely free of the order $n$ of the Lovelock polynomial indicating universal asymptotic beha... View more

    [6] The Einstein-GB vacuum equation would however read as Gab +αGBHab = −Λgab where αGB is the GB coupling constant. In absence of maatter in higher dimensions, it would perhaps be appropriate to consider only the GB vacuum part Hab = −Λgab.
