How to explain different variability classes of XRBs, e.g. GRS 1915+105?
Recent numerical simulations show that the inner part of the disk seems to oscillate in presence of a Large scale magnetic field or when the disk is in MAD state. So, can we correlate this sort of behaviour with the variability of the source?

Strong Magnetic field inside the compact object plays the crucial role for understanding the variable x-ray burst. Change in internal structure due to the presence of superfluidity, superconductivity and external accretion also are responsible for this variable x-ray burst. What I understand that we have to consider these three first and then to compare with the simulation where the effect is changing, finally we will be able to understand what is actually going on.
Simulation can help us to know the magnitude of possible change and its location to find out inside the compact object.

Could magnetic fields within an accretion disk affect the temperature of the disk?
- Samik Mitra
We all know that accretion disks around BHs are presumably be magnetized in nature. If we consider ideal MHD, we know magnetic fields are frozen within the plasmas. Now, magnetic fields are turbulent, so can they help in raising the temperature of the disk? And is it significant?

Space Curvature - Is there a mathematical description of the fourth drawing?
- Aleksandar Janjic
in accordance with Friedmann-Lemaitre-Equation there are three different possibilities of space curvature which can be described mathematically and imparted graphically or analogously (Closed, Openend or Flat Universe). In the attached poster a fourth graphic representation is shown, which is however only graphically derived.
Is this sketch describable within Friedmann-Lemaitre-Equations? How can we interpret this sketch? A Universe that is truly infinite, although it has a defined start and a defined end point?
What would be a 3-Dimensional mathematical object to describe the plot (closed hypertorus, while closed means without a connection in the center?). And what numbers for curvature parameter k and density Parameter Ω make sense for this sketch?
I have created this plot purely graphically and wonder whether a mathematical interpretation of such a shaped space-time is possible, or whether it inevitably leads to paradoxes and is thus a graphic that can be drawn abstractly, but ultimately makes no mathematical sense.

How to shift my research direction to a new field?
- Nishargo Nigar
Seeking expert advice from academia. Both my bachelor’s and master’s are in the field of computer science. I have research, industry, and entrepreneurship experiences related to that field only. However, I would like to explore something new. I have always been fascinated by astronomy and astrophysics. Would it increase my chance for a Ph.D. if I have a publication relevant to the new field? Or are there other opportunities that I don’t know about yet? Thank you!
What is the effect of microlensing and weak lensing on the stability of the International Celestial Reference Frame?
- Ludwig Combrinck
Spacetime curvature creates a space time "seeing" effect, which is analogous to astronomical seeing. This is due to microlensing and weak lensing, which becomes problematic from an ICRF stability viewpoint as astrometric VLBI and optical measurements (e.g. GAIA) moves into the tens of micro-arcsecond accuracy region. This space time seeing effect will create a noise floor, limiting ICRF stability due to apparent source position distortions and amplitude variations. This will of course have an impact on the high accuracy requirements of the Global Geodetic Observing System (GGOS), which has the objectives of 0.1 mm stability and accuracy of 1 mm for the ITRF. The distribution of dark matter complicates the problem.
