Relativistic astrophysics

Research in relativistic astrophysics encompass both theoretical and observational studies of relativistic objects. We study compact objects such as black holes (BH) of various sizes from stellar-mass BHs to supermassive BH in the centres of galaxies as well as accreting neutron stars (NS) in their different observational appearance: X-ray pulsars and weakly-magnetized NS in low-mass X-ray binaries (LMXB). Our studies also cover the mechanisms of formation of compact objects as a result of supernova explosions and the physics of gamma-ray bursts associated with such explosions.


Our research directions can be roughly divided into a few groups:
