    • Test particle trajectories near cosmic strings

      Farook Rahaman Subenoy Chakraborty K Maity

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      We present a detailed analysis of the motion of test particle in the gravitational field of cosmic strings in different situations using the Hamilton-Jacobi (H-J) formalism. We have discussed the trajectories near static cosmic string, cosmic string in Brans-Dicke theory and cosmic string in dilaton gravity.

    • Higher dimensional global monopole in Brans-Dicke theory

      Farook Rahaman Subenoy Chakraborty Mehedi Kalam

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The gravitational field of a higher dimensional global monopole in the context of Brans-Dicke theory of gravity is investigated. The space time metric and the scalar field generated by a global monopole are obtained using the weak field approximation. Finally, the geodesic of a test particle due to the gravitational field of the monopole is studied.

    • Gravitational field of spherical domain wall in higher dimension

      Farook Rahaman Mehedi Kalam

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      An exact solution of Einstein’s equations is found describing the gravitational field of a spherical domain wall with nonvanishing stress component in the direction perpendicular to the plane of the wall. Also we have studied the motion of test particle around the domain wall.

    • Singularity-free non-exotic compact star in $f (R, T)$ gravity


      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      In the present work, we have searched for the existence of anisotropic and non-singular compact star in the $f (R, T)$ gravity by taking into account the non-exotic equation of state (EoS). In order to obtain the solutions of the matter content of the compact object, we assume the well-known barotropic form of EoS that yields the linear relation between pressures and energy density. We propose the existence of non-exotic compact star which shows the validation of energy conditions and stability within the perspective of $f (R,T)$ extended theory of gravity. The linear material correction in the extended theory and matter content of compact star can remarkably satisfy energy condition. We discuss various physical features of the compact star and show that the proposed model of the stellar object satisfies all regularity conditions and is stable as well as singularity-free.
