Manybody aspects of gravity in compact stars

- Physics
- 2017

Compact stars such as neutron stars and black holes are gravitationally bound many body systems. We investigate the importance of short and long range part of gravity for such systems. From our…

Stability of extended scalar diquark stars vis-à-vis soliton stars

- Physics
- 2003

Motivated by relatively large values of the maximum mass (M = 8.92M⊙) and radius (R = 507 km) obtained for an extended scalar diquark star within the framework of an effective φ4-theory (S K Karnet…

Stars: Their structure and evolution

- Physics
- 1996

The subject of astrophysics began with the study of the stars. It may be recalled that the positivist philosophers who were so influential in European thinking had asserted that it was in the nature…

On the Role of Schwarzschild Interaction in Understanding Strong Interaction and Nuclear Binding Energy

- Physics
- 2015

In this paper the authors reviewed the basics of final unification with respect to Schwarzschild interaction and strong interaction. In the earlier published papers the authors suggested that,…

A Rigorous Examination of the Chandrasekhar Theory of Stellar Collapse

- Physics
- 1987

Some of the results of a rigorous analysis of the Chandrasekhar semiclassical theory of stellar collapse are presented here. They are of two kinds. The first concerns the Chandrasekhar equation…

Degeneracy, the virial theorem, and stellar collapse

- Physics
- 2008

Formulae for the energies of degenerate non-relativistic and ultra-relativistic Fermi gases play multiple roles in simple arguments related to the collapse of a stellar core to a neutron star. These…

EQUATION-OF-STATE FOR WHITE DWARF STARS

- 2006

W HITE dwarfs are a distinct class of stellar objects, that were first encountered in F.W. Bessel’s observation of Sirius in 1836. Bessel examined the wobbling features of the proper motion of Sirius…

The Dark Universe

- Physics
- 2010

For a few years now, cosmology has a standard model. By this term, we mean a consistent theoretical background which is at the same time simple and broad enough to offer coherent explanations for the…

The Mysteries of Fermions

- Physics
- 2010

It is conjectured that all known fermions are topological solitons. This could explain the non-observation of bosonic leptons and baryons and provide a physical mechanism for the Pauli exclusion…

Radioactive beams and nuclear astrophysics

- Physics
- 1996

The use of Radioactive Beams, either at low- or at high-energy, in Nuclear Astrophysics, mainly for studying violent stellar events, is reviewed.
