Self-gravito-acoustic shock signals in astrophysical compact objects

18 Jun 2017  ·  Mamun A. A. ·

The existence of self-gravito-acoustic (SGA) shock signals (SSs) associated with negative self-gravitational potential in the perturbed state of the astrophysical compact objects (ACOs) (viz. white dwarfs, neutron stars, black holes, etc.).. is predicted for the first time. A modified Burgers equation (MB), which is valid for both planar and non-planar spherical geometries, by the reductive perturbation method. It is shown that the longitudinal viscous force acting in the medium of any ACO is the source of dissipation, and is responsible for the formation of these SGA SSs. The time evolution of these SGA SSs is also shown for different values (viz. $0.5$, $1$, and $2$ ) of the ratio of nonlinear coefficient to dissipative coefficient in the MB equation. The theory presented here is so general that it can be applied in any ACO of planar or non-planar spherical shape. read more
