The gravitational decoupling is applied to studying minimal geometric deformed (MGD) compact superfluid stars, in covariant logarithmic scalar gravity on fluid branes. The brane finite tension is shown to provide more realistic values for the asymptotic value of the mass function of MGD superfluid stars, besides constraining the range of the self-interacting scalar field, minimally coupled to gravity. Several other physical features of MGD superfluid stars, regulated by the finite brane tension…

Gravitational decoupling of generalized Horndeski hybrid stars

Gravitational decoupled compact polytropic hybrid stars are here addressed in generalized Horndeski scalar-tensor gravity. Additional physical properties of hybrid stars are scrutinized and discussed

A simple protocol to construct solutions with vanishing complexity by Gravitational Decoupling

In this work we develop a simple protocol to construct interior solutions through Gravitational Decoupling by the Minimal Gemetric Deformation extended satisfying the vanishing complexity condition.

Energy exchange between relativistic fluids: the polytropic case

We present a simple, analytic and straightforward method to elucidate the effects produced by polytropic fluids on any other gravitational source, no matter its nature, for static and spherically



Superfluid stars and Q-balls in curved spacetime

Within the framework of the theory of strongly-interacting quantum Bose liquids, we consider a general relativistic model of self-interacting complex scalar fields with logarithmic nonlinearity taken

MGD Dirac Stars

The MGD Dirac star maximal mass is shown to increase as an specific function of the spinor self-interaction coupling constant, in a realistic model involving the most strict phenomenological current bounds for the brane tension.

Anisotropic ultracompact Schwarzschild star by gravitational decoupling

We employ the minimal geometric deformation approach to gravitational decoupling (MGD-decoupling) in order to generate an exact anisotropic and non-uniform version of the ultracompact Schwarzschild

Einstein-Klein-Gordon system by gravitational decoupling

We investigate how a spherically symmetric scalar field can modify the Schwarzschild vacuum solution when there is no exchange of energy-momentum between the scalar field and the central source of

The dynamics of neutron star crusts: Lagrangian perturbation theory for a relativistic superfluid-elastic system

The inner crust of a mature neutron star is composed of an elastic lattice of neutron-rich nuclei penetrated by free neutrons. These neutrons can flow relative to the crust once the star cools below

Anisotropic neutron stars by gravitational decoupling

In this work we obtain an anisotropic neutron star solution by gravitational decoupling starting from a perfect fluid configuration which has been used to model the compact object PSR J0348+0432.
