Neutron stars structure in the context of massive gravity
Abstract
Motivated by the recent interests in spin−2 massive gravitons, we study the structure of neutron star in the context of massive gravity. The modifications of TOV equation in the presence of massive gravity are explored in 4 and higher dimensions. Next, by considering the modern equation of state for the neutron star matter (which is extracted by the lowest order constrained variational (LOCV) method with the AV18 potential), different physical properties of the neutron star (such as Le Chatelier's principle, stability and energy conditions) are investigated. It is shown that consideration of the massive gravity has specific contributions into the structure of neutron star and introduces new prescriptions for the massive astrophysical objects. The massradius relation is examined and the effects of massive gravity on the Schwarzschild radius, average density, compactness, gravitational redshift and dynamical stability are studied. Finally, a relation between mass and radius of neutron star versus the Planck mass is extracted.

It is shown that in Ni's theory of gravity, which is identical to general relativity in the postNewtonian limit, neutron stars of arbitrarily large mass are possible. This result is independent, within reasonable bounds, of the equation of state of matter at supernuclear densities.

Rapidly rotating neutron stars with a massive scalar field—structure and universal relations
We construct rapidly rotating neutron star models in scalartensor theories with a massive scalar field. The fact that the scalar field has nonzero mass leads to very interesting results since the allowed range of values of the coupling parameters is significantly broadened. Deviations from pure general relativity can be very large for values of the parameters that are in agreement with the observations. We found that the rapid rotation can magnify the differences several times compared to the static case. The universal relations between the normalized moment of inertia and quadrupole moment are also investigated both for the slowly andmore » 
Stars and (furry) black holes in Lorentz breaking massive gravity
We study the exact spherically symmetric solutions in a class of Lorentzbreaking massive gravity theories, using the effectivetheory approach where the graviton mass is generated by the interaction with a suitable set of Stueckelberg fields. We find explicitly the exact blackhole solutions which generalizes the familiar Schwarzschild one, which shows a nonanalytic hair in the form of a powerlike term r{sup {gamma}}. For realistic selfgravitating bodies, we find interesting features, linked to the effective violation of the Gauss law: (i) the total gravitational mass appearing in the standard 1/r term gets a multiplicative renormalization proportional to the area of themore » 
INTERNAL GRAVITY WAVES IN MASSIVE STARS: ANGULAR MOMENTUM TRANSPORT
We present numerical simulations of internal gravity waves (IGW) in a star with a convective core and extended radiative envelope. We report on amplitudes, spectra, dissipation, and consequent angular momentum transport by such waves. We find that these waves are generated efficiently and transport angular momentum on short timescales over large distances. We show that, as in Earth's atmosphere, IGW drive equatorial flows which change magnitude and direction on short timescales. These results have profound consequences for the observational inferences of massive stars, as well as their long term angular momentum evolution. We suggest IGW angular momentum transport may explainmore » 
Late stages of the RayleighTaylor instability: A numerical study in the context of accreting neutron stars
The development of the RayleighTaylor (or interchange) instability in the fully nonlinear regime is explored using a twodimensional, compressible magnetohydrodynamics code. Motivation for this work stems from models of accreting Xray sources, according to which the infalling matter encounters the magnetosphere of a neutron star, and interchange modes are driven transverse to the direction of the magnetic field. In previous studies, swirling motions that act to mix the media on relatively small scales were found to develop along the boundary.
