We study the gravitational waves produced by compact binary systems in the linear regime of massless general relativity and calculate the gravitational memory produced by these waves on a detector.

Scalar mesons in radiative phi-meson decays into charged k-meson states
Öztürk, Fahri; Gökalp, Ahmet; Department of Physics (2008)
The role of $f_{0}(980)$ and $a_{0}(980)$ scalar meson intermediate states in the mechanism of radiative $\phi (1020)$ meson decay into two charged $K (494)$ mesons and a photon $\phi\rightarrow K^{+} + K^{-} + \gamma$ is investigated. For the contribution of scalar meson intermediate state two models are considered. In the kaon-loop model, the scalar meson intermediate state couples the final state to the initial $\phi$ meson through a charged kaon-loop. The second model, called no-structure model, consist...
Autoparallel orbits in Kerr Brans-Dicke spacetimes
Cebeci, H; Dereli, T; Tucker, RW (2004-01-01)
The bounded orbital motion of a massive spinless test particle in the background of a Kerr Brans-Dicke geometry is analysed in terms of worldlines that are auto-parallels of different metric compatible spacetime connections. In one case the connection is that of Levi-Civita with zero-torsion. In the second case the connection has torsion determined by the gradient of the Brans-Dicke background scalar field. The calculations permit one in principle to discriminate between these possibilities.
Adsorption of gold atoms on anatase TiO2 (100)-1x1 surface
Vural, Kıvılcım Başak; Ellialtıoğlu, Süleyman Şinasi; Department of Physics (2009)
In this work the electronic and structural properties of anatase TiO2 (100) surface and gold adsorption have been investigated by using the first-principles calculations based on density functional theory (DFT). TiO2 is a wide band-gap material and to this effects it finds numerous applications in technology such as, cleaning of water, self-cleaning, coating, solar cells and so on. Primarily, the relation between the surface energy of the anatase (100)-1x1 phase and the TiO2-layers is examined. After an app...
Non-Einsteinian black holes in generic 3D gravity theories
Gürses, Metin; Şisman, Tahsin Çağrı; Tekin, Bayram (AMER PHYSICAL SOC, ONE PHYSICS ELLIPSE, COLLEGE PK, MD 20740-3844 USA, 2019-09-21)
The Banados-Teitelboim-Zanelli (BTZ) black hole metric solves the three-dimensional Einstein's theory with a negative cosmological constant as well as all the generic higher derivative gravity theories based on the metric; as such it is a universal solution. Here, we find, in all generic higher derivative gravity theories, new universal non-Einsteinian solutions obtained as Kerr-Schild type deformations of the BTZ black hole. Among these, the deformed nonextremal BTZ black hole loses its event horizon while...
Dynamics of extended objects in general relativity
İlhan, İbrahim Burak; Tekin, Bayram; Department of Physics (2009)
In this thesis, multipole expansions of mass, momentum and stress density will be made for a body in Newtonian mechanics. Using these definitions; momentum, angular momentum, center of mass, force and torque are defined for N gravitationally interacting isolated bodies. Equations of motions of such a system are derived. Definitions of momentum, angular momentum, center of mass, force and torque are made in a relativistic theory. Dynamical (gravitational) skeleton is defined and the multipole moments of the ...
