Recently, the covariant formulation of the Tolman-Oppenheimer-Volkoff (TOV) equations for studying the equilibrium structure of a spherically symmetric compact star in the presence of the pressure anisotropy in the interior of a star was presented in Phys. Rev. D \textbf{97} (2018) 124057. It was suggested there that the anisotropic solution of these equations can be obtained by finding, first, the solution of the common TOV equations for the isotropic pressure, and then by solving the…

New perspectives on the TOV equilibrium from a dual null approach

The TOV equation appears as the relativistic counterpart of the classical condition for hydrostatic equilibrium. In the present work we aim at showing that a generalised TOV equation also

Testing the nature of dark compact objects: a status report

Very compact objects probe extreme gravitational fields and may be the key to understand outstanding puzzles in fundamental physics. These include the nature of dark matter, the fate of spacetime

Echoes from phantom wormholes

We study the time evolution of the test scalar and electromagnetic fields perturbations in configurations of phantom wormholes surrounded by dark energy with $\omega< -1$. We observe obvious signals

Covariant Tolman-Oppenheimer-Volkoff equations. I. The isotropic case

We generalise the covariant Tolman-Oppenheimer-Volkoff equations proposed in arXiv:1709.02818 [gr-qc] to the case of static and spherically symmetric spacetimes with anisotropic sources. The extended

General relativistic polytropes in anisotropic stars

Spherically symmetric relativistic stars with the polytropic equation of state (EoS), which possess the local pressure anisotropy, are considered within the framework of general relativity. The

On the relativistic anisotropic configurations

In this paper we study anisotropic spherical polytropes within the framework of general relativity. Using the anisotropic Tolman–Oppenheimer–Volkov equations, we explore the relativistic anisotropic
