In this paper we consider effects of the general relativity and an accreting black hole in a globular cluster by studying the evolution of a globular cluster core as a whole, i.e., without the partition of the core into the so-called cusp and isothermal core regions. The globular cluster core is assumed to contain a massive black hole at its center. We show that the final fate of the evolution of a globular cluster core depends on the mass of the black hole at its center. When the massM of the…

The product of the globular cluster collapse
In this paper we calculate the number of close binaries formed during the evolution process of a globular cluster core. The globular cluster core is assumed to contain a massive black hole at its
The Core Radius of a Star Cluster Containing a Massive Black Hole
We present a theoretical framework which establishes how the core radius of a star cluster varies with the mass of an assumed central black hole. Our result is that r(c)/r(h) proportional to
The number-density of stars in a spherically-symmetric system containing a massive black hole at its center
An object with a compact core is a configuration in various astrophysical problems. In this paper, considering general relativity, the number densities of stars in a spherically-symmetric system

Dissolution of globular clusters containing massive black holes
A homological model is employed to follow the dynamical evolution of a globular cluster core containing a massive black hole at its center. Energy is supplied to the core via the inward drift and
Star distribution around a massive black hole in a globular cluster
To predict the likely distribution of stars around a massive black hole in the core of a cluster of stars, an equation of the Fokker-Planck type is derived that describes the diffusion of stars in
On the nature of the globular cluster X-ray sources
It is suggested that the globular cluster X-ray sources can be interpreted in terms of mass shed by evolving postmain-sequence stars in the central regions of the globular cluster and accreting onto
X-ray binaries in globular clusters
It appears to be very unlikely that primordial binaries in globular clusters have evolved to produce high-luminosity X-ray sources like the four variable sources detected in observations by the Uhuru
Massive black holes in globular clusters?
FOUR X-ray sources have been identified1,2 with globular star clusters (NGC1851, NGC6441, NGC6624 and M15). These are the first X-ray sources to be optically identified with the oldest component

Observations of a bright, variable x-ray source in a globular cluster
The source 3U 1820-30 in NGC 6624 has been observed with the OSO-7 satellite. It shows variability of up to a factor of 5 in intensity over days and months and of a factor of 2 in about 5-10 minutes,
A 685 second orbital period from the X-ray source 4U 1820-30 in the globular cluster NGC 6624.
The discovery of a coherent 685 s periodicity in the X-ray source 4U 1820 -30, which is located in the globular cluster NGC 6624, is reported. The modulation has a peak-to-peak amplitude of up to 3
Observations of variable X-ray sources in globular clusters
The discovery is reported of a variable X-ray source at midgalactic latitude in the globular cluster NGC 1851, and observations are reported which confirm the existence of variable X-ray sources in
Dynamical evolution of globular clusters.
Abstract A brief review of pre- and post-collapse evolution of globular clusters is given. Particular attention is paid to gravothermal oscillations of cores of globular clusters.
