The presence of a kHz frequency in LMXBs has been expected from scaling laws, by analogy with the QPO phenomenon in HMXB X‐ray pulsars. Interpretation of the two kHz frequencies, observed in accreting neutron stars, in terms of non‐linear resonance in strong‐field gravity led to the prediction of twin QPOs in black hole systems, in a definite frequency ratio (such as 2/3). The imprint of a subharmonic of the 401 Hz rotation rate in the frequencies of the QPOs detected in the accreting… Expand

A GENERAL RELATIVISTIC MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMIC MODEL OF HIGH FREQUENCY QUASI-PERIODIC OSCILLATIONS IN BLACK HOLE LOW-MASS X-RAY BINARIES
We suggest a possible explanation for the high frequency quasi-periodic oscillations (QPOs) in black hole (BH) low-mass X-ray binaries. By solving the perturbation general relativisticExpand
An explanation for the kHz-QPO twin peaks separation in slow and fast rotators
In this Letter we further explore the idea, suggested previously by Kluzniak and collaborators, that the high frequency QPOs may be explained as a resonant coupling between the neutron star spin andExpand
X‐ray spectral states and high‐frequency QPOs in black holebinaries
The high-frequency quasi-periodic oscillations (HFQPOs) in the X-ray emission of black hole binaries and candidates are briefly reviewed with respect to the question of X-ray states. We use theExpand
Origin of power-law X-ray emission in the steep power-law state of X-ray binaries
We present a new explanation for the origin of the steep power-law (SPL) state of X-ray binaries. The power-law component of X-ray emission is the synchrotron radiation of relativistic electrons inExpand

In all the microquasars with two hHz QPOs, the ratio of the fre quencies is 3:2, supporting our suggestion that a non-linear resonance between two modes of oscillation in th e accretion disk plays aExpand
Eigenmodes of trapped horizontal oscillations in accretion disks
We present eigenfrequencies and eigenfunctions of trapped acoustic-inertial oscillations of thin accretion disks for a Schwarzschild black hole and a rapidly rotating Newtonian star (a MaclaurinExpand
A toy model for coupling accretion disk oscillations to the neutron star spin
Lee, Abramowicz & Kluzniak (2004) demonstrated numerically that rotation of neutron star couples with oscillations of its accretion disk, and excites resonances. No specific coupling was assumed, butExpand
Toroidal LNRF-velocity profiles in thick accretion discs orbiting rapidly rotating Kerr black holes
We show that in the equatorial plane of marginally stable thick discs (with uniformly distributed specific angular momentum l(r, θ) = const) the orbital velocity relative to the LNRF has a positiveExpand
Relativistic, axisymmetric, viscous, radiation hydrodynamic simulations of geometrically thin discs. II. Disc variability
We perform detailed variability analysis of two-dimensional viscous, radiation hydrodynamic numerical simulations of Shakura-Sunyaev thin disks around a stellar mass black hole. Disk models areExpand
