Role of pressure anisotropy on relativistic compact stars

  title={Role of pressure anisotropy on relativistic compact stars},
  author={Sunil Kumar Maurya and Ayan Banerjee and Sudan Hansraj},
  journal={Physical Review D},
We investigate a compact spherically symmetric relativistic body with anisotropic particle pressure profiles. The distribution possesses characteristics relevant to modeling compact stars within the framework of general relativity. For this purpose, we consider a spatial metric potential of Korkina and Orlyanskii [Ukr. Phys. J. 36, 885 (1991)] type in order to solve the Einstein field equations. An additional prescription we make is that the pressure anisotropy parameter takes the functional…

In this work we have extended the Maurya-Gupta isotropic fluid solution to Einstein field equations to an aniso-tropic domain. To do so, we have employed the gravitational decoupling via the minimal

Anisotropic strange stars in Tolman–Kuchowicz spacetime
We attempt to study a singularity-free model for the spherically symmetric anisotropic strange stars under Einstein’s general theory of relativity by exploiting the Tolman–Kuchowicz (Tolman in Phys


Relativistic anisotropic models for compact star with equation of state p = f(ρ)
We present new anisotropic models for Buchdahl [H. A. Buchdahl, Phys. Rev. 116 (1959) 1027.] type perfect fluid solution. For this purpose, we started with metric potential eλ same as Buchdahl [H. A.
Exact well behaved solutions of Einstein-Maxwell equations for relativistic charged superdense star models
We present a new class of static spherically symmetric exact solutions of the Einstein-Maxwell system of equations by considering a specific choice of electric intensity which involves a parameter K.
Mass-Radius diagram for compact stars
The compact stars represent the final stage in the evolution of ordinary stars, they are formed when a star ceases its nuclear fuel, in this point the process that sustain its stability will stop.
Limiting configurations allowed by the energy conditions
The energy conditions of general relativity are satisfied by all experimentally detected fields. We discuss their interpretation and application to charged spheres. It is found that they prevent the

We set up in detail the general formalism to model polytropic general relativistic stars with anisotropic pressure. We shall consider two different possible polytropic equations, all of which yield
