Autoparallel orbits in Kerr Brans-Dicke spacetimes

Cebeci, H
Dereli, T
Tucker, RW
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.


Gravitational waves and gravitational memory
Korkmaz, Ali; Tekin, Bayram; Department of Physics (2018)
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.
Entangled Harmonic Oscillators and Space-Time Entanglement
Başkal, Sibel; Kim, Young S.; Noz, Marilyn E. (MDPI AG, 2016-6-28)
The mathematical basis for the Gaussian entanglement is discussed in detail, as well as its implications in the internal space-time structure of relativistic extended particles. It is shown that the Gaussian entanglement shares the same set of mathematical formulas with the harmonic oscillator in the Lorentz-covariant world. It is thus possible to transfer the concept of entanglement to the Lorentz-covariant picture of the bound state, which requires both space and time separations between two constituent p...
Dual metrics and nongeneric supersymmetries for a class of Siklos space-times
Baleanu, D; Baskal, S (2002-10-20)
The presence of Killing-Yano tensors implies the existence of nongeneric supercharges in spinning point particle theories on curved backgrounds. Dual metrics axe defined through their associated nondegenerate Killing tensors of valence two. Siklos space-times, which are the only nontrivial Einstein spares conformal to nonflat pp-waves are investigated with regard to the existence of their corresponding Killing and Killing-Yano, tensors. It is found that a class of Siklos space-times admit dual metrics and n...

Within the class of nonlinear hyperbolic balance laws posed on a curved spacetime (endowed with a volume form), we identify a hyperbolic balance law that enjoys the same Lorentz invariance property as the one satisfied by the Euler equations of relativistic compressible fluids. This model is unique up to normalization and converges to the standard inviscid Burgers equation in the limit of infinite light speed. Furthermore, from the Euler system of relativistic compressible flows on a curved background, we d...
Equivariant Reduction of Gauge Theories over Fuzzy Extra Dimensions
Kürkcüoğlu, Seçkin (IOP Publishing, 2012-2-8)
In SU(N) Yang-Mills theories on a manifold M, which are suitably coupled to a set of scalars, fuzzy spheres may be generated as extra dimensions by spontaneous symmetry breaking. This process results in gauge theories over the product space of the manifold M and the fuzzy spheres with smaller gauge groups. Here we present the SU(2)- and SU(2) x SU(2)-equivariant parametrization of U(2) and U(4) gauge fields on S-F(2), and S-F(2), x S-F(2), respectively and outline the dimensional reduction of these theories...
