Quantized orbital structures are typical for many aspects of classical gravity (Newton's as well as Einstein's). The astronomical phenomenon of orbital resonances is a well-known example. Recently, Rothman et al (2001 Class. Quantum Grav. 18 1217–33) discussed quantized orbital structures in the novel context of a holonomy invariance of parallel transport in Schwarzschild geometry. We present here yet another example of quantization of orbits, one that is closely related to orbital resonances…

Equatorial geodesics of dyonic Kerr-Newman black hole pierced by a cosmic string
Abstract.This paper is devoted to study the circular geodesics of the dyonic Kerr-Newman black hole with a cosmic string passing through it. We investigate circular geodesics of null and timelike
Super-spinning compact objects and models of high-frequency quasi-periodic oscillations observed in Galactic microquasars
We have previously applied several models of high-frequency quasi-periodic oscillations (HF QPOs) to estimate the spin of the central Kerr black hole in the three Galactic microquasars, GRS 1915+105,
We present a detailed temporal analysis of a set of hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulations of geometrically thin (h/r ∼ 0.05) black hole accretion disks. The black hole potential is


Holonomy in the Schwarzschild-Droste Geometry
Parallel transport of vectors in curved spacetimes generally results in a deficit angle between the directions of the initial and final vectors. We examine such holonomy in the Schwarzschild-Droste
Marginally stable orbits around Maclaurin spheroids and low-mass quark stars
When the eccentricity of a Maclaurin spheroid exceeds a critical value ($e>0.83458318$), circular orbits in the equatorial plane are unstable for a range of orbital radii outside the stellar surface
Trapping of Non-Axisymmetric $g$-Mode Oscillations in Thin Relativistic Disks and kHz QPOs
We suggest that in the inner part of geometrically thin relativistic disks there are trapped non-axisymmetric g-mode oscillations which are excited by a corotation resonance. These oscillation modes
Optical reference geometry for stationary and static dynamics
Attention is drawn to the advantages of representing dynamical behavior in a stationary or static background spacetime in terms of a fixed reference 3-geometry that differs from the usual one by a
Discovery of a Second High-Frequency Quasi-periodic Oscillation from the Microquasar GRS 1915+105
We report the discovery in archival Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer data of a ~40 Hz quasi-periodic oscillation (QPO) in the hard X-ray flux from the Galactic microquasar GRS 1915+105. The QPO is
Black-Hole Accretion Disks
We overview the theory of black hole accretion disks. In the first half, we introduce basic accretion disk models with emphasis on optically thin, advection-dominated accretion flows (ADAFs). We then
Penetration of Magneto-Rotationally Unstable Perturbations in SSD into ADAF through a Transition Surface
A linear deformation, by a magneto-rotational instability, of the transition suface between an outer Shakura-Sunyaev-type standard disk (SSD) and inner advection-dominated accretion flows (ADAF) is
A cloud model of active galactic nuclei: the iron Kα line diagnostics
The origin and the profile of the iron Kα line from active galactic nuclei are studied. The model with a quasi-spherical distribution of clouds around a compact galactic nucleus is explored, in which
