Spherically symmetric gravitating scalar field. The inverse problem and exact solutions

Ju.V. Tchemarina and A.N. Tsirulev1


We present integral formulas exactly solving the inverse problem for a static, spherically symmetric scalar field, minimally coupled to gravity. With the help of these formulas some general properties of asymptotically flat scalar field configurations are found.
