We present a generalized Newtonian description of particle dynamics valid for any spherically symmetric, static black hole spacetime. This approach is derived from the geodesic motion of test particles in the low-energy limit. It reproduces exactly the location of the marginally stable, marginally bound, and photon circular orbits; the radial dependence of the energy and angular momentum of circular orbits; parabolic motion; pericentre shift; and the spatial projection of general trajectories…

Pseudo-Newtonian Equations for Evolution of Particles and Fluids in Stationary Space-times

Pseudo-Newtonian potentials are a tool often used in theoretical astrophysics to capture some key features of a black hole space-time in a Newtonian framework. As a result, one can use Newtonian

The Johannsen-Psaltis spacetime describes a rotating black hole with parametric deviations from the Kerr metric. By construction this spacetime explicitly violates the no-hair theorems. Rotating

Bondi accretion in the spherically symmetric Johannsen–Psaltis spacetime

The Johannsen–Psaltis spacetime explicitly violates the no-hair theorem. It describes rotating black holes with scalar hair in the form of parametric deviations from the Kerr metric. In principle,

Unsettling Physics in the Quantum-Corrected Schwarzschild Black Hole

This unsettling physics, which deviates radically from both Schwarzschild (near the horizon) and Minkowski (at infinity) is due to repulsion by the negative quantum energy density that makes the quasilocal mass vanish as one approaches spatial infinity.

Free Motion around Black Holes with Disks or Rings: Between Integrability and Chaos–V

The complete integrability of geodesic motion, the well-known feature of fields of isolated stationary black holes, can easily be “spoiled” by the presence of some additional sources (even if highly

Orbit classification in an equal-mass non-spinning binary black hole pseudo-Newtonian system

The dynamics of a test particle in a non-spinning binary black hole system of equal masses is numerically investigated. The binary system is modeled in the context of the pseudo-Newtonian circular



Pseudo-Newtonian and general relativistic barotropic tori in Schwarzschild–de Sitter spacetimes

Pseudo-Newtonian gravitational potential introduced in spherically symmetric black-hole spacetimes with a repulsive cosmological constant is tested for equilibrium toroidal configurations of

Motion of test particles in a regular black hole space–time

We consider the motion of test particles in the regular black hole space-time given by Ayon-Beato and Garcia [Phys. Rev. Lett. 80, 5056 (1998)]. The complete set of orbits for neutral and weakly

Circular geodesics of naked singularities in the Kehagias-Sfetsos metric of Hořava's gravity

We discuss photon and test-particle orbits in the Kehagias-Sfetsos (KS) metric of Ho\ifmmode \check{r}\else \v{r}\fi{}ava's gravity. For any value of the Ho\ifmmode \check{r}\else \v{r}\fi{}ava

Black holes

The observational evidence for black holes is reviewed, some recent developments involving cosmic censorship and the statistical origin of black hole entropy are described, and some of their properties are described.
