  journal={Physical Review D},
We formulate new general-relativistic extensions of Newtonian rotation laws for self-gravitating stationary fluids. They have been used to re-derive, in the first post-Newtonian approximation, the well known geometric dragging of frames. We derive two other general-relativistic weak-field effects within rotating tori: the recently discovered dynamic anti-dragging and a new effect that measures the deviation from the Keplerian motion and/or the contribution of the fluids selfgravity. One can use…

General-relativistic rotation laws in fluid tori around spinning black holes
We obtain rotation laws for axially symmetric, selfgravitating and stationary fluids around spinning black holes. They reduce --- in the Newtonian limit --- to monomial rotation curves. For spinless
General-relativistic rotation: Self-gravitating fluid tori in motion around black holes
We obtain from the first principles a general-relativistic Keplerian rotation law for self-gravitating disks around spinning black holes. This is an extension of a former rotation law that was
Self-gravitating axially symmetric disks in general-relativistic rotation
We integrate numerically axially symmetric stationary Einstein equations describing self-gravitating disks around spinless black holes. The numerical scheme is based on a method developed by Shibata,
Rotating stars in relativity
The latest theoretical understanding of rotating stars in relativity is reviewed and several new sections have been added on equilibria in modified theories of gravity, approximate universal relationships, the one-arm spiral instability, and on analytic solutions for the exterior spacetime.
Self-gravitating magnetized tori around black holes in general relativity
We investigate stationary, self-gravitating, magnetised disks (or tori) around black holes. The models are obtained by numerically solving the coupled system of the Einstein equations and the
Toroidal magnetic fields in self-gravitating disks around black holes
We investigate stationary models of magnetized, self-gravitating disks around black holes. The disks are assumed to rotate according to a recently introduced Keplerian rotation law. We consider
Modelling general-relativistic disc in OJ 287
We model self-gravitating disks in Keplerian motion around the primary black hole, in the binary black hole system OJ 287 with a torus, employing a consistently general-relativistic approach. They
Accretion processes for general spherically symmetric compact objects
We investigate the accretion process for different spherically symmetric space-time geometries for a static fluid. We analyze this procedure using the most general black hole metric ansatz. After
Two mass conjectures on axially symmetric black hole-disk systems
We analyze stationary self-gravitating disks around spinning black holes that satisfy the recently found general-relativistic Keplerian rotation law. There is a numerical evidence that the angular
Equilibrium sequences of differentially rotating stars with post-merger-like rotational profiles
We present equilibrium sequences of rotating relativistic stars, constructed with a new rotation law that was proposed by Uryu et al. (2017). We choose rotational parameters motivated by simulations
