• Acceleration-induced nonlocality: kinetic memory versus dynamic memory 

    Chicone, Carmen Charles; Mashhoon, Bahram (arXiv, 2001-10)
    The characteristics of the memory of accelerated motion in Minkowski spacetime are discussed within the framework of the nonlocal theory of accelerated observers. Two types of memory are distinguished: kinetic and dynamic. ...
  • Acceleration-induced nonlocality: uniqueness of the kernel 

    Chicone, Carmen Charles; Mashhoon, Bahram (arXiv, 2002-02)
    We consider the problem of uniqueness of the kernel in the nonlocal theory of accelerated observers. In a recent work, we showed that the convolution kernel is ruled out as it can lead to divergences for nonuniform accelerated ...
  • Chaos in the Kepler system 

    Chicone, Carmen Charles; Mashhoon, Bahram; Retzloff, David G. (American Institute of Physics, 1999-02)
    The long-term dynamical evolution of a Keplerian binary orbit due to the emission and absorption of gravitational radiation is investigated. This work extends our previous results on transient chaos in the planar case to ...
  • Dynamics of Relativistic Flows 

    Chicone, Carmen Charles; Mashhoon, Bahram; Punsly, Brian, 1956- (arXiv, 2004-05)
    Dynamics of relativistic outflows along the rotation axis of a Kerr black hole is investigated using a simple model that takes into account the relativistic tidal force of the central source as well as the Lorentz force ...
  • Gravitational ionization: a chaotic net in the Kepler system 

    Chicone, Carmen Charles; Mashhoon, Bahram; Retzloff, David G. (American Institute of Physics, 1997-03)
    The long-term nonlinear dynamics of a Keplerian binary system under the combined influences of gravitational radiation damping and external tidal perturbations is analysed. Gravitational radiation reaction leads the binary ...
  • Relativistic motion of spinning particles in a gravitational field 

    Chicone, Carmen Charles; Mashhoon, Bahram; Punsly, Brian, 1956- (arXiv, 2005-05)
    The relative motion of a classical relativistic spinning test particle is studied with respect to a nearby free test particle in the gravitational field of a rotating source. The effects of the spincurvature coupling force ...
  • Sustained resonance: a binary system perturbed by gravitational radiation 

    Chicone, Carmen Charles; Mashhoon, Bahram; Retzloff, David G. (American Institute of Physics, 2000-01)
    The general phenomena associated with sustained resonance are studied in this paper in connection with relativistic binary pulsars. We represent such a system by two point masses in a Keplerian binary system that evolves ...
  • Tidal dynamics in Kerr spacetime 

    Chicone, Carmen Charles; Mashhoon, Bahram (Institute of Physics, 2006-05)
    The motion of free nearby test particles relative to a stable equatorial circular geodesic orbit about a Kerr source is investigated. It is shown that the nonlinear generalized Jacobi equation can be transformed in this ...
