Cold inactive disks are believed to exist in Low Luminosity AGN (LLAGN). They may also exist in the nuclei of inactive galaxies and in the center of our own Galaxy. These disks would then be embedded in the observed dense nuclear stellar clusters. Making the simplest assumption of an optically thick disk, we explore several ways to detect the disk presence through its interaction with the cluster. First of these is the eclipses of close bright stars by the disk. The second is the increase in… 
Using close stars as probes of hot accretion flow in Sgr A
The extremely hot and tenuous accretion flow in the immediate vicinity of Sgr A ∗ is believed to be invisible (too dim) in the X-ray band, except for short X-ray flares. Here we point out that during
Galactic Centre star formation: the case of the missing gas disc
We study the dynamical evolution of stars and gas close to the centre of the Milky Way. Any plausible means of forming the young stars observed at the Galactic Centre leaves behind a residual gas
On highly eccentric stellar trajectories interacting with a self-gravitating disc in Sgr A
We propose that Kozai's phenomenon is responsible for the long-term evolution of stellar orbits near a supermassive black hole. We pursue the idea that this process may be driven by a fossil

Orbital motion
This exercise explores the motion of a particle in a spherical Coulomb potential. The equations of motion are similar to those for a planet orbiting the sun: the radial acceleration varies inversely
