In order to shed some light in the meaning of the relativistic multipolar expansions we consider different static solutions of the axially symmetric vacuum Einstein equations that in the non-relativistic limit have the same Newtonian moments. The motion of test particles orbiting around different deformed attraction centers with the same Newtonian limit is studied paying special attention to the advance of the perihelion. We find discrepancies in the fourth order of the dimensionless parameter… 
Exact general relativistic discs and the advance of perihelion
The advance of perihelion for geodesic motion on the galactic plane of some exact general relativistic disc solutions is calculated. Approximate analytical and numerical results are presented for the
The Dynamical Behaviour of Test Particles in a Quasi-spherical Spacetime and the Physical Meaning of Superenergy
We calculate the instantaneous proper radial acceleration of test particles (as measured by a locally defined Lorentzian observer) in a Weyl spacetime, close to the horizon. As expected from the
A semi-relativistic approach to the circular restricted three-body problem and a numerical experiment around the 3:2 resonance
A Hamiltonian that approaches the study of the three-body problem in general relativity is obtained. We use it to study the relativistic version of the circular restricted three-body problem in which
Stability of circular orbits of particles moving around black holes surrounded by axially symmetric structures
The Rayleigh criterion is used to study the stability of circular orbits of particles moving around static black holes surrounded by different axially symmetric structures with reflection symmetry,
We explore the possible physical consequences derived from the fact that the only static and asymptotically flat vacuum space–time possessing a regular horizon is the Schwarzschild solution (Israel
Circular geodesics in the distorted spacetime of a deformed compact object
This paper describes the deformed compact object in the presence of an external distribution of matter via exercising quadrupole moments. The goal of this work is also to examine the impact of
Possible way out of the Hawking paradox: Erasing the information at the horizon
We show that small deviations from spherical symmetry, described by means of exact solutions to Einstein equations, provide a mechanism to "bleach" the information about the collapsing body as it
Magnetised tori in the background of a deformed compact object
In this paper, we studied the relativistic accretion thick disc model raised by a deformed compact object up to the quadrupole moment. The goal of this work is to study the space-time and the effects
Event horizon of the monopole–quadrupole solution: geometric and thermodynamic properties
We investigate the general geometric properties of the surface of infinite redshift corresponding to the event horizon of the static and axisymmetric solution of the Einstein vacuum equations, which

The Newtonian and the relativistic (Geroch-Hansen) multipole moments of the solution are investigated and it is concluded that it describes the exterior gravitational field of a static axisymmetric mass distribution.
On the gravitational field of static and stationary axial symmetric bodies with multi-polar structure
It is found that each multi-pole corresponds to the Newtonian potential of a bar with linear density proportional to a Legendre polynomial, which is used to find an integral representation of the function.
Multipole moments of stationary space-times
Multipole moments are defined for stationary, asymptotically flat, source‐free solutions of Einstein's equation. There arise two sets of multipole moments, the mass moments and the angular momentum
Multipole Moments. II. Curved Space
Multipole moments are defined for static, asymptotically flat, source‐free solutions of Einstein's equations. The definition is completely coordinate independent. We take one of the 3‐surfaces V,
Chaotic motion around prolate deformed bodies.
It is found that the instability of the orbits increases when the quadrupole parameter increases, and that the general relativistic analog is briefly discussed.
Chaos and the Shapes of Elliptical Galaxies
Hubble Space Telescope observations reveal that the density of stars in most elliptical galaxies rises toward the center in a power-law cusp. Many of these galaxies also contain central dark objects,
Measuring multipole moments of Weyl metrics by means of gyroscopes
Using the technique of Rindler and Perlick we calculate the total precession per revolution of a gyroscope circumventing the source of Weyl metrics. We establish thereby a link between the multipole
Counterrotating Stellar Disks in Early-Type Spirals: NGC 3593
We report the discovery of two counterrotating stellar disks in the early-type spiral galaxy NGC 3593. The major axis kinematics shows the presence of two dynamically cold counterrotating components.
The stationary gravitational field near spatial infinity
Any stationary, asymptotically flat solution to Einstein's equation is shown to asymptotically approach the Kerr solution in a precise sense. As an application of this result we prove a technical
