In this paper, we study and compare the optical and X-ray counterparts of subparsec supermassive black hole binaries (SMBHBs). With that aim, we simulated the profiles of optical spectral lines emitted from the broad line region (BLR) as well as X-ray spectral lines emitted from the relativistic accretion disks around both black holes and compared...

In this paper we use a modification of the Newtonian gravitational potential with a non-linear Yukawa-like correction, as it was proposed by C. Will earlier to obtain new bounds on graviton mass from the observed orbits of S-stars around the Galactic Center (GC). This phenomenological potential differs from the gravitational potential obtained in t...

Here we study possible improvements of the existing constraints on the upper bound of the graviton mass by the analysis of the stellar orbits around the supermassive black hole (SMBH) at the Galactic Center (GC) in the framework of Yukawa gravity. A motivation for this study is a recent detection of Schwarzschild precession in the orbit of S2 star...

In our work we presented the modified field equations generated by action with unspecified function f (R). Assuming spherical symmetry, we used the corresponding static Schwarzschild-like metric in the weak field limit. Also we considered geodesic equations of motion describing orbits and orbital speeds which can be measured in galactic environment...

The aim of our investigation is to derive a particular theory among the class of scalar-tensor(ST) theories of gravity, and then to test it by studying kinematics and dynamics of S-stars around supermassive black hole (BH) at Galactic Center (GC). We also discuss the Newtonian limit of this class of ST theories of gravity, as well as its parameters...

Nonlocal theories of gravity have recently drawn a lot of attention because they can suitably represent the behavior of gravitational interaction in the ultraviolet regime. Furthermore, at infrared scales, they give rise to notable cosmological effects which could be important to describe the dark energy behavior. In particular, exponential forms o...

The simplest form of the Hyperfine Interaction (HFI) of quarks is a color-spin interaction, sometimes called Fermi-Breit (FB) HFI. For conventional hadrons, this HFI for quark-antiquark (qq̄) pairs is twice as strong as the same HFI for quark-quark (qq or q̄q̄) pairs, but this difference is absorbed into the different HFI constants for mesons and b...

The backscattered electron spectra from graphite sample were studied both experimentally and theoretically at impact energies between 500 and 5000 eV. The angle of the incident electron beam was 50° and the detection angle was 0° with respect to the surface normal, respectively. Monte Carlo (MC) simulations were performed based on the Classical Tra...

Recently, the LIGO-Virgo collaboration discovered gravitational waves and in their first publication on the subject the authors also presented a graviton mass constraint as $m_g < 1.2 \times 10^{-22}$ eV Abbott et al. (2016). In the paper we analyze a potential to reduce upper bounds for graviton mass with future observational data on trajectories...

We demonstrate that the existence of a Noether symmetry in f ( R ) theories of gravity gives rise to an additional gravitational radius, besides the standard Schwarzschild one, determining the dynamics at galactic scales. By this feature, it is possible to explain the baryonic Tully-Fisher relation and the rotation curve of gas-rich galaxies withou...

The role of f(R) gravity, as well as the other modifications of standard Einstein’s gravity, is to explain the accelerated expansion, structure formation of the Universe, and some other phenomena at extragalactic scales (such as e.g. flat rotation curves of spiral galaxies) without adding unknown forms of dark energy or dark matter. In f(R) model,...

An experimental detection of graviton is extremely hard problem, however, there are different ways to evaluate a graviton mass if it is non-vanishing. Theories of massive gravity or theories with non-vanishing graviton mass initially have a number of pathologies such as discontinuities, ghosts etc. In last years theorists found ways to overcome wea...

We use the dielectric response formalism to explore the wake effect due to excitation of the sheet plasmons in graphene and in a two-dimensional (2D) electron gas with a parabolic energy band, caused by an externally moving charged particle. Using the random phase approximation to obtain the relevant polarisation functions, we have found similariti...

One could use trajectories of test particles to evaluate a gravitational potential. In particular, in the case of the Galactic Center one could use photon trajectories to analyze a shadow structure. Another way is to use bright stars near the Galactic Center to evaluate a gravitational potential and constrain parameters of a model for the Galactic...

The fundamental plane (FP) of galaxies can be recovered in the framework of $f(R)$ gravity avoiding the issues related to dark matter to fit the observations. In particular, the power-law version $f(R)\propto R^n$, resulting from the existence of Noether symmetries for $f(R)$, is sufficient to implement the approach. In fact, relations between the...

We investigate the interactions of charged particles with straight and bent single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) under channeling conditions in the presence of dynamic polarization of the valence electrons in carbon. This polarization is described by a cylindrical, two-fluid hydrodynamic model with the parameters taken from the recent modelling o...

We consider possible signatures for the so called hybrid gravity within the Galactic Central Parsec. This modified theory of gravity consists of a superposition of the metric Einstein–Hilbert Lagrangian with an f(R) term constructed à la Palatini
and can be easily reduced to an equivalent scalar–tensor theory. Such an approach is introduced in orde...

In our simulations the primary electron energy is 150 eV and the incidence angle of the electron beam with respect to the surface is varied between 1° and 90 °. The backsca...

We use the dielectric response formalism to show how an incident charged particle may be used to probe the hybridization taking place between the Dirac plasmon in graphene and the surface optical phonon modes in a SiO2 substrate. Strong effects of this hybridization are found in the wake pattern in the induced potential, as well as in the stopping...

Central Parsec, based on our analysis of the S2 star orbital precession around
the massive compact dark object at the Galactic Centre, and on the comparisons
between the simulated orbits in Yukawa gravity and two independent sets of
observations. Our simulations resulted in stro...

We used a model of a relativistic accretion disk around a supermassive black
hole (SMBH), based on ray-tracing method in the Kerr metric, to study the
variations of the composite Fe K$\alpha$ line emitted from two accretion disks
around SMBHs in a binary system. We assumed that the orbit of such a binary is
approximately Keplerian, and simulated th...

One of the most intriguing scenarios proposed to explain how active galactic
nuclei are triggered involves the existence of a supermassive binary black hole
system in their cores. Here we present an observational evidence for the first
spectroscopically resolved sub-parsec orbit of a such system in the core of
Seyfert galaxy NGC 4151. Using a metho...
