In 2015, after the discovery of Kepler-186f, the fifth exoplanet in orbit of its star, Kepler-186, we investigated for three new undetected planets in the Kepler-186 system [1]. Of the planets which are owned by the Kepler-186, the first Earth-like planet and far from its star is Kepler-186f. Considering the order of these five discovered planets,...

The discovery of extrasolar planets outside our solar system and around other stars is now well underway. In the presented paper, calculations of some physical properties for confirmed exoplanets have been done. We have estimated physical properties such as the semi-major axis for potentially habitable exoplanets, the mass of planets by applying Ke...

The Von Neumann entropy plays a central role in the quantum information theory and is a concave function and following the property 0< ∑𝑆(𝜆𝑖𝜌𝑖)𝑖∈1−∑𝜆𝑖𝑆(𝜌𝑖)𝑖∈1≤−∑𝜆𝑖(log 𝜆𝑖)𝑖∈1 . In this paper, we introduce a new proof for the linearity of Von Neumann entropy in the rate without using the above inequality. Here the Von Neumann entropy is concave; tha...

Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) is a theory that suggests a modification in Newtonian dynamics. It is an empirically motivated modification of Newtonian gravity without the need of dark matter. This theory is well fitted by explaining why the velocity of galaxies or stars are in linear and in flat curve. More than 84 galaxies are in a well fitti...

The chemistry of the gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) had been established. However, the explanation on the interplay between GABA receptors antagonize fundamental concept of the GABAergic signaling. For example, glutamate spillover from excitatory afferent terminals leads to the modulation of GABAergic signals. However, this result is true with resp...

The mechanism of the femtosecond spin dynamics is still not properly understood. The remodeled Bloch-Schrödinger equation was incorporated into the Hamiltonian. The mechanism of the femtosecond dynamics was investigated under three quantum states. The spin relaxation mechanism operated in a single continuous time scale (>70ps) which was in variance...

Friedmann equations are used to describe the evolution of the universe. Solving Friedmann equations for the scale factor indicates that the universe starts from an initial singularity where all the physical laws break down. However, the Friedmann equations are well describing the late-time or large scale universe. Hence now, many physicists try to...

Newton considered three-dimensional universe endowed with flat space Euclidean geometry, and treated the time as an outside parameter and established his dynamics of the universe. Einstein along with space, considered time, and generated a four-dimensional universe endowed with non-Euclidean curved space-time geometry with time as its fourth dimens...

It has been seen that the period of solar activity and its cycle has a decrease of seismic activity in the compression zone of the Earth. In addition, at the same time there is an increase of the activity in the tension zones of the Earth. This study has been emphasized on last 45 years (i.e. 1960-2005) cyclic data in term of the number of seismic...

We study the evaluation of bending of light ray passing near a massive elliptical galaxy or star. To obtain this solution we used two different, Einsteinian and Lagrangian method. In doing this, we consider and compare the difference deflection angle between spherical and elliptical shape objects which led to appear a small but not negligible coeff...

We derived Reissner-Nordstrom solution for non-rotating charged celestial objects with Elliptical in shaped, such as stars and/or elliptical galaxies. This metric is capable to describing the behavior of gravitational field outside any charged ellipsoidal celestial objects like stars, galaxies or Quasi-stellar object.

Einstein's field equations are based on Riemannian geometry. One of the great important in Riemannian geometry is the curves that minimize the distance between two given points. The Ricci curvature tensors are also broadly applicable to modern Riemannian geometry and general theory of relativity (GTR). The solution of Einstein's field equations, ne...

The simplest solution of Einstein's field equations is Schwarzschild solution. This solution is not able to describe for any nonspherical shaped objects. Some stars and galaxies are in ellipsoidal. Consequently, the gravitational field around these objects should be different in compare with spherical form. This paper is considering a new line elem...

Schwarzschild solution is the simplest solution of Einstein's field equations, but it has not been able to describe any non-spherical in shape as in the real are existing. Many objects like stars and/or galaxies are in the form of ellipsoidal form and consequently, the gravitational lines around the objects are different in comparing with spherical...
