## Exact Solutions of Einstein's Field Equations Associated to a Point-Mass Delta-Function Source

**Authors:** Carlos Castro

We explicitly solve the static spherically symmetric Einstein field
equations due to a delta function point mass source at r = 0 and explain
why our solutions are not diffeomorphic to the textbook solution. It is
shown that the Euclidean action (in h-bar units) is precisely equal to the
black hole entropy (in Planck area units). This result holds in any
dimensions D >= 3 . Instead of a black-hole solution with a horizon at
r = 2GM one has a spacetime void surrounding the singularity.
