Numerous studies on hydrodynamics of the Keplerian as well as the sub-Keplerian accretion disk around a compact object (e.g., white dwarf (WD), neutron star (NS), or a black hole) have attempted to explain the observed UV, soft, and hard X-ray spectra. Although, when the compact object (e.g., a WD or an NS) has a finite surface, its rapid rotation, the stellar magnetic field could cause deformation of the spherical symmetry. Earlier studies on the Keplerian disk showed that a deviation from the… Expand
