    • Abstract


      We examine the properties of the viscous dissipative accretion flow around rotating black holes in the presence of mass loss. Considering the thin disc approximation, we self-consistently calculate the inflow-outflow solutions and observe that the mass outflow rates decrease with the increase in viscosity parameter ($\alpha$). Further, we carry out the model calculation of quasi-periodic oscillation frequency ($\nu_{\rm QPO}$) that is frequentlyobserved in black hole sources and observe that $\nu^{\max}_{\rm QPO}$ increases with the increase of black hole spin ($a_{\rm k}$). Then, we employ our model in order to explain the High Frequency Quasi-Periodic Oscillations (HFQPOs) observedin black hole source GROJ1655-40. While doing this, we attempt to constrain the range of $a_k$ based on observed HFQPOs ($\sim$300 Hz and $\sim$450 Hz) for the black hole source GRO J1655-40.

      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.
