Abstract

We study quasinormal modes for massive scalar fields in Schwarzschild-anti-de Sitter black holes. When the mass-squared is above the Breitenlohner-Freedman bound, we show that for large angular momenta, ℓ, there exist quasinormal modes with imaginary parts of size exp(-ℓ/C). We provide an asymptotic expansion for the real parts of the modes closest to the real axis and identify the vanishing of certain coefficients depending on the dimension.
