The TOV equation appears as the relativistic counterpart of the classical condition for hydrostatic equilibrium. In the present work we aim at showing that a generalised TOV equation also characterises the equilibrium of models endowed with other symmetries besides spherical. We apply the dual null formalism to spacetimes with two dimensional spherical, planar and hyperbolic symmetries with a perfect fluid as the source. We also assume a Killing vector field orthogonal to the surfaces of… Expand
Dynamics of hyperbolically symmetric fluids
We study the general properties of dissipative fluid distributions endowed with hyperbolical symmetry. Their physical properties are analyzed in detail. It is shown that the energy density isExpand
Modified Gravity and Cosmology: An Update by the CANTATA Network
General Relativity and the ΛCDM framework are currently the standard lore and constitute the concordance paradigm. Nevertheless, long-standing open theoretical issues, as well as possible newExpand


The novel JEV RT-NASBA assay could be used as an efficient molecular biology tool to diagnose JEV, which would facilitate the surveillance of reproductive failure disease in swine and would be beneficial for public health security. Expand

Charged cosmological black holes: A thorough study of a family of solutions
We study a class of charged cosmological black holes defined by the Shah-Vaidya solution, which is similar to the McVittie solution but for a central object of nonzero electric charge. We show thatExpand
Existence and classification of pseudo-asymptotic solutions for Tolman–Oppenheimer–Volkoff systems
The Tolman--Oppenheimer--Volkoff (TOV) equations are a partially uncoupled system of nonlinear and non-autonomous ordinary differential equations which describe the structure of isotropic sphericallyExpand
Comment on "Covariant Tolman-Oppenheimer-Volkoff equations. II. The anisotropic case"
Recently, the covariant formulation of the Tolman-Oppenheimer-Volkoff (TOV) equations for studying the equilibrium structure of a spherically symmetric compact star in the presence of the pressureExpand
Covariant Tolman-Oppenheimer-Volkoff equations. II. The anisotropic case
We generalise the covariant Tolman-Oppenheimer-Volkoff equations proposed in arXiv:1709.02818 [gr-qc] to the case of static and spherically symmetric spacetimes with anisotropic sources. The extendedExpand
Embedding Black Holes and Other Inhomogeneities in the Universe in Various Theories of Gravity: A Short Review
Classic black hole mechanics and thermodynamics are formulated for stationary black holes with event horizons. Alternative theories of gravity of interest for cosmology contain a built-inExpand
