Journal description
The European Physical Journal C Particles and Fields A merger of Il Nuovo Cimento A and Zeitschrift für Physik C The physics of elementary particles lies at the frontier of our understanding of nature. The journal EPJ C publishes most recent experimental and theoretical results obtained in this field. Experimental results come from the high energy physics laboratories such as CERN (Switzerland) DESY (Germany) SLAC and Fermilab (both USA) and KEK (Japan) with their accelerators and experimentral facilities and also from nonaccelerator laboratories such as Kamioka (Japan) GranSasso (Italy) and others. Theoretical topics include studies and tests of the Standard Model computer simulations of Quantum Chromodynamics search for the Higgs particle and supersymmetry and the investigation of new ideas beyond the standard model.

ABSTRACT: A wellestablished phenomenon in general relativity is the dragging of inertial frames by a spinning object. In particular, due to the dragging of inertial frames by a ring orbiting a central black hole, the angularvelocity of the blackhole horizon in the composed blackholering system is no longer related to the blackhole angularmomentum by the simple Kerrlike (vacuum) relation $\Omega^{\text{Kerr}}_{\text{H}}(J_{\text{H}})=J_{\text{H}}/2M^2R_{\text{H}}$. Will has performed a perturbative treatment of the composed blackholering system in the regime of slowly rotating black holes and found the explicit relation $\Omega^{\text{BHring}}_{\text{H}}(J_{\text{H}}=0,J_{\text{R}},R)=2J_{\text{R}}/R^3$ for the angularvelocity of a central black hole with zero angularmomentum. Analyzing a sequence of blackholering configurations with adiabatically varying (decreasing) circumferential radii, we show that the expression found by Will implies a smooth transition of the central blackhole angularvelocity from its asymptotic nearhorizon value $\Omega^{\text{BHring}}_{\text{H}}(J_{\text{H}}=0,J_{\text{R}},R\to R^{+}_{\text{H}})$ to its final Kerr (vacuum) value $\Omega^{\text{Kerr}}_{\text{H}}(J^{\text{new}}_{\text{H}})$. We use this important observation in order to generalize the result of Will to the regime of blackholering configurations in which the central black holes possess nonzero angular momenta. Remarkably, we find the simple universal relation $\Delta\Omega_{\text{H}}\equiv\Omega^{\text{BHring}}_{\text{H}}(J_{\text{H}},J_{\text{R}},R\to R^{+}_{\text{H}})\Omega^{\text{Kerr}}_{\text{H}}(J_{\text{H}})={{J_{\text{R}}}/{4M^3}}$ for the asymptotic deviation of the blackhole angularvelocity in the composed blackholering system from the corresponding angularvelocity of the unperturbed (vacuum) Kerr black hole with the same angularmomentum.European Physical Journal C 11/2015; 75(11).

ABSTRACT: In this paper, we investigate conformal Killing vectors (CKVs) admitted by some plane symmetric spacetimes. Ten conformal Killing’s equations and their general forms of CKVs are derived along with their conformal factor. The existence of conformal Killing symmetry imposes restrictions on the metric functions. The conditions imposing restrictions on these metric functions are obtained as a set of integrability conditions. Considering the cases of timelike and inheriting CKVs, we obtain spacetimes admitting plane conformal symmetry. Integrability conditions are solved completely for some known nonconformally flat and conformally flat classes of plane symmetric spacetimes. A special vacuum plane symmetric spacetime is obtained, and it is shown that for such a metric CKVs are just the homothetic vectors (HVs). Among all the examples considered, there exists only one case with a six dimensional algebra of special CKVs admitting one proper CKV. In all other examples of nonconformally flat metrics, no proper CKV is found and CKVs are either HVs or Killing’s vectors (KVs). In each of the three cases of conformally flat metrics, a fifteen dimensional algebra of CKVs is obtained of which eight are proper CKVs.European Physical Journal C 11/2015; 75(11).

ABSTRACT: Recently we have shown that for 2+1dimensional thinshell wormholes a noncircular throat may lead to a physical wormhole in the sense that the energy conditions are satisfied. By the same token, herein we consider an angular dependent throat geometry embedded in a 2+1dimensional flat spacetime in polar coordinates. It is shown that, remarkably, a generic, natural example of the throat geometry is provided by a hypocycloid. That is, two flat 2+1 dimensions are glued together along a hypocycloid. The energy required in each hypocycloid increases with the frequency of the roller circle inside the large one.European Physical Journal C 11/2015; 75(11). DOI:10.1140/epjc/s1005201537705
