    • Abstract


      We study the properties of the ’Newtonian forces’ acting on a test particle in the field of the Kerr black hole geometry. We show that the centrifugal force and the Coriolis force reverse signs at several different locations. We point out the possible relevance of such reversals particularly in the study of the stability properties of the compact rotating stars and the accretion discs in hydrostatic equilibria

    • Continuous Article Publication

      Posted on January 27, 2016

      Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
