The recent theoretical advance known as the minimal geometric deformation (MGD) method has initiated renewed interest in investigating higher-curvature gravitational effects in relativistic astrophysics. In this work, we model a strange star within the context of Einstein–Gauss–Bonnet gravity with the help of the MGD technique. Starting off with the Tolman metric ansatz, together with the MIT bag model equation of state applicable to hadronic matter, anisotropy is introduced via the…

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


Anisotropic quark stars in Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet theory
Charged compact star model in Einstein-Maxwell-Gauss-Bonnet gravity
In this paper we present a model of a static charged anisotropic fluid sphere in the Einstein-Maxwell-Gauss-Bonnet (EMGB) theory of gravitation. We utilize the Krori-Barua (KB) ansatz together with a
Relativistic stars in 4D Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity
In the present paper we investigate the structure of relativistic stars in 4D Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity. The mass-radius relations are obtained for realistic hadronic and for strange quark star
Extended gravitational decoupling (GD) solution for charged compact star model
In the present article, we have obtained a new solution for the charged compact star model through the gravitational decoupling (GD) by using a complete geometric deformation (CGD) approach (Ovalle,
Models of Anisotropic Self-Gravitating Source in Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet Gravity
In this paper, we have studied gravitational collapse and expansion of nonstatic anisotropic fluid in 5D Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity. For this purpose, the field equations have been modeled and
Relativistic strange quark stars in Lovelock gravity
Abstract.We study relativistic non-rotating stars in the framework of Lovelock gravity. In particular, we consider the Gauss-Bonnet term in a five-dimensional spacetime, and we investigate the impact
