Oscillations of disks by Shōji Katō( )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the current state of research on disk oscillation theory, focusing on relativistic disks and tidally-deformed disks. Since the launch of the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) in 1996, many high-frequency quasiperiodic oscillations (HFQPOs) have been observed in X-ray binaries. Subsequently, similar quasi-periodic oscillations have been found in such relativistic objects as microquasars, ultra-luminous X-ray sources, and galactic nuclei. One of the most promising explanations of their origin is based on oscillations in relativistic disks, and a new field called discoseismology is currently developing. After reviewing observational aspects, the book presents the basic characteristics of disk oscillations, especially focusing on those in relativistic disks. Relativistic disks are essentially different from Newtonian disks in terms of several basic characteristics of their disk oscillations, including the radial distributions of epicyclic frequencies. In order to understand the basic processes of disk oscillations, studies on binary systems are of importance, as they offer valuable information on wave-wave coupling processes in disk oscillations. Accordingly, some characteristics of oscillations in deformed disks are also presented in this book. The book consists of two parts. Points covered in Part I include, for instance, the basic characteristics of disk oscillations, classification of oscillation modes, and trapping of oscillations. In Part II, the focus is mainly on excitation processes of oscillations, while applications to observations are also discussed. -Preface
Physics of accretion disks : advection, radiation, and magnetic fields( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Advection-dominated disks are replacing the standard model, and this book provides the first extensive examination of their various aspects. Topics discussed include the global disk structure, thermal stability, two-temperature regimes, electron-positron pair production, disk spectra, the relation to the outburst behaviour of X-ray transients and hard-soft spectral transitions, the effects of radiation drag force, jet formation and possible nucleosynthesis in the advection-dominated disks. The papers also address some more fundamental issues concerning the basic physics of accretion disks, including the origin of disk viscosity, the observational appearance of the tidal instability. In cataclysmic variables, and the role of self-gravity of accretion disks in relation to stellar systems and to star/planet formation. This book will be required reading for any astronomer, cosmologist or astrophysicist seeking an up-to-date overview of this topic
