General relativistic spectra of accretion disks around rotating neutron starsNov 28 2000General relativistic spectra from accretion disks around rotating neutron stars in the appropriate space-time geometry for several different equation of state, spin rates and mass of the compact object have been computed. The analysis involves the computation ... More

A study of a tilted thin inner accretion disk around a spinning black holeNov 14 2018Feb 01 2019The inner part of a thin accretion disk around a Kerr black hole can serve as an important tool to study the physics of the strong gravity regime. A tilt in such a disk with respect to the black hole spin axis is particularly useful for this purpose, ... More

Rainbow black hole thermodynamics and the generalized uncertainty principleMay 17 2018We study the phase transition of rainbow inspired higher dimensional Schwarzschild black hole incorporating the effects of the generalized uncertainty principle. First, we obtain the relation between the mass and Hawking temperature of the rainbow inspired ... More

Black holes in presence of cosmological constant: Second order in 1/DMay 01 2018Jul 03 2018We have extended the results of arXiv:1704.06076 upto second subleading order in an expansion around large dimension D. Unlike the previous case, there are non-trivial metric corrections at this order. Due to our `background-covariant' formalism, the ... More

Network organization of coopetitive genetic influences on cortical morphologiesFeb 09 2018Brain can be represented as a network, where regions are the nodes and relations between the regions are edges. Within a network, co-existence of cooperative and competitive relationships between different nodes is called coopetition. Inter-regional genetic ... More

X-ray spectral state evolution in IGR J17091-3624 and comparison of its heartbeat oscillation properties with those of GRS 1915+105May 24 2011Jan 21 2014In this work, we study the X-ray timing and spectral evolution of the transient low mass X-ray binary IGR J17091-3624 during first 66 days of its 2011 outburst. We present results obtained from observations with two instruments, Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer ... More

Small Hairy Black Holes in $AdS_5 \times S^5$May 07 2010We study small hairy black holes in a consistent truncation of ${\cal N}=8$ gauged supergravity that consists of a single charged scalar field interacting with the metric and a U(1) gauge field. Small very near extremal RNAdS black holes in this system ... More
