We study the order ten polynomial equation satisfied by the radius of the spherical timelike orbits for a massive particle with a generic energy around a Kerr black hole. Even though the radii of the prograde and retrograde orbits at the equatorial or polar plane for particles with zero or unit energy have a monotonic dependence on the rotation parameter of the black hole, we show that there is a critical inclination angle above which the retrograde orbits have a nonmonotonic dependency on the rotation of the black hole. Thus the capture cross section of these retrograde orbits decreases with increasing black hole spin. Hence their efficiency to reduce the black hole's spin is decreased. We also provide an equation for the critical inclination angle that shows exactly at which point the nonmonotonicity starts. In addition, we employ the Lagrange-Burmann method to find approximate analytic solutions from the known exact solutions.

Hermitian and gauge-covariant Hamiltonians for a particle in a magnetic field on cylindrical and spherical surfaces
Shikakhwa, M. S.; Chair, N. (IOP Publishing, 2017-01-01)
We construct the Hermitian Schrodinger Hamiltonian of spin-less particles and the gauge-covariant Pauli Hamiltonian of spin one-half particles in a magnetic field, which are confined to cylindrical and spherical surfaces. The approach does not require the use of involved differential-geometrical methods and is intuitive and physical, relying on the general requirements of Hermicity and gauge-covariance. The surfaces are embedded in the full three-dimensional space and confinement to the surfaces is achieved...
Exciton related optical absorption in a spherical quantum dot
Aksahin, Ertan; Unal, Vildan Ustoglu; Tomak, Mehmet (2014-11-10)
An exciton in a spherical quantum dot is studied analytically within the effective mass approximation. A parabolic confinement under an electric field is considered. The linear and nonlinear optical absorption coefficients are calculated within the density matrix formalism. No assumptions are made about the strength of the confinement. It is shown how the competing mechanisms of the Coulomb interaction, the confinement and the applied static electric field affect the optical absorption.
Critical points of D-dimensional extended gravities
Deser, S.; Liu, Haishan; Lue, H.; Pope, C. N.; Sisman, Tahsin Cagri; Tekin, Bayram (2011-03-17)
We study the parameter space of D-dimensional cosmological Einstein gravity together with quadratic curvature terms. In D < 4 there are in general two distinct (anti)-de Sitter vacua. We show that, for an appropriate choice of the parameters, there exists a critical point for one of the vacua, with only massless tensor, but neither massive tensor nor scalar, gravitons. At criticality, the linearized excitations have formally vanishing energy (as do black hole solutions). A further restriction of the paramet...
CASIMIR EFFECT IN A HALF EINSTEIN UNIVERSE - AN EXACTLY SOLVABLE CASE IN CURVED BACKGROUND AND WITH A SPHERICAL BOUNDARY
BAYIN, SS; OZCAN, M (IOP Publishing, 1993-09-01)
We reconsider the Casimir problem for the massless conformal scalar field in a 'half Einstein universe'. We first calculate the renormalized vacuum energy by using the mode sum method. Next, we calculate the renormalized vacuum energy-momentum tensor by using the point-splitting method. We construct the Green function by using the eigenfunctions, which are obtained by solving the wave equation with the appropriate boundary conditions. We discuss the importance of this case as well as its relation to previo...
CASIMIR ENERGY IN A CURVED BACKGROUND WITH A SPHERICAL BOUNDARY - AN EXACTLY SOLVABLE CASE
BAYIN, SS; OZCAN, M (1993-09-15)
We reconsider the Casimir effect for the massless conformal scalar field in a ''half Einstein universe.'' This case is interesting in that it could be solved analytically by several different methods. Thus, it allows us to compare and understand effects of different approaches. We first calculate the renormalized vacuum energy by using the mode sum method and study the effects of different cutoff functions. Next, we calculate the renormalized vacuum energy-momentum tensor by using the covariant point-splitt...
