Some general relativistic effects on the dynamics of fluid disks rotating around a Schwarzschild black hole

  • D. K. Chakraborty
  • K. N. Mishra


In this paper we present various classes of solutions for perfect fluid disks rotating around Schwarzschild black holes. We study the profiles of pressure, density and specific angular momentum and the formation of cusp-like structures at the inner edge of the disks. Using the trial function method, we calculate the frequency of the global axi-symmetric oscillations. We compare the results with those of the corresponding Newtonian calculations to find the general relativistic effects.
