Planet migration originally refers to protoplanetary disks, which are more massive and dense than typical accretion disks in binary systems. We study planet migration in an accretion disk in a binary system consisting of a solar-like star hosting a planet and a red giant donor star. The accretion disk is fed by a stellar wind. %, disk self-gravity is neglected. We use the α-disk model and consider that the stellar wind is time-dependent. Assuming the disk is quasi-stationary we calculate its temperature and surface density profiles. In addition to the standard disk model, when matter is captured by the disk at its outer edge, we study the situation when the stellar wind delivers matter on the whole disc surface inside the accretion radius with the rate depending on distance from the central star. Implying that a planet experiences classical type I/II migration we calculate migration time for a planet on a circular orbit coplanar with the disk. Potentially, rapid inward planet migration can result in a planet-star merger which can be accompanied by an optical or/and UV/X-ray transient. We calculate timescale of migration for different parameters of planets and binaries. Our results demonstrate that planets can fall on their host stars within the lifetime of the late-type donor for realistic sets of parameters.

Orbits of close-in planets can shrink significantly due to dissipation of tidal energy in a host star. This process can result in star-planet coalescence within the Galactic lifetime. In some cases, such events can be accompanied by an optical or/and UV/X-ray transient. Potentially, these outbursts can be observed in near future with new facilities such ...

We present an accurate analytic approximation for the energy of a quantum one-component Coulomb liquid of ions in a uniform electron background that has been recently calculated from first principles. The approximation enables us to develop in an analytic form a complete thermodynamic description of quantum ions in a practically important range of mass densities ...

Light curves of the eclipsing binary FL Lyr acquired by the Kepler space telescope are analyzed. Eclipse timing measurements for FL Lyr testify to the presence of a third body in the system. Preliminary estimates of its mass and orbital period are 2MJ and 7 yrs. The times of primary minimum in the light curve of FL Lyr ...

The discovery of a terrestrial planet orbiting Proxima Centauri has led to a lot of papers discussing the possible conditions on this planet. Since the main factors determining space weather in the Solar System are the solar wind and cosmic rays (CRs), it seems important to understand what the parameters of the stellar wind, Galactic and stellar CRs ...

How black holes accrete surrounding matter is a fundamental yet unsolved question in astrophysics. It is generally believed that matter is absorbed into black holes via accretion disks, the state of which depends primarily on the mass-accretion rate. When this rate approaches the critical rate (the Eddington limit), thermal instability is supposed to occur in ...

Ages and thermal luminosities of neutron stars, inferred from observations, can be interpreted with the aid of the neutron star cooling theory to gain information on the properties of superdense matter in neutron-star interiors.

We study heat diffusion after an energy release in a deep spherical layer of the outer neutron star crust (107 ≲ ρ ≲ 4 × 1011 g cm-3). We demonstrate that this layer possesses specific heat-accumulating properties, absorbing heat and directing it mostly inside the star. It can absorb up to ∼1043-1044 erg due to ...

Several candidates for accreting magnetars have been proposed recently by different authors. Existence of such systems contradicts the standard magnetic field decay scenario where a large magnetic field of a neutron star reaches ≲a few ×1013 G at ages ≳1 Myr. Among other sources, the high-mass X-ray binary 4U 0114+65 seems to have a strong ...

We calculate the electrical and thermal conductivity of a two-dimensional electron gas with strong spin-orbit coupling in which the scattering is dominated by electron-electron collisions. Despite the apparent absence of Galilean invariance in the system, the two-particle scattering does not affect the electrical conductivity above the band-crossing point where both helicity bands are filled. Below the band-crossing point ...

We study regularization scheme dependence of beta-function for sigma models with two-dimensional target space. Working within four-loop approximation, we conjecture the scheme in which the beta-function retains only two tensor structures up to certain terms containing zeta_3. Using this scheme, we provide explicit solutions to RG flow equation corresponding to Yang-Baxter- and lambda-deformed SU(2)/U(1) sigma ...

To date, a number of lantibiotics have been shown to use lipid II — a highly conserved peptidoglycan precursor in the cytoplasmic membrane of bacteria — as their molecular target. The α-component (Lchα) of the two-component lantibiotic lichenicidin (Lchα), previously isolated from the Bacillus licheniformis VK21 strain, seems to contain two putative lipid II binding ...

The framework of simple opposition realism - anti-realism is not enough to analyze the views on the reality of unobservable objects of quantum theory. First, it is necessary to distinguish between realism in relation to the theory and realism in relation to the theory’s objects.

Sequential state discrimination is a strategy for quantum state discrimination of a sender’s quantum states when N receivers are separately located. In this report, we propose optical designs that can perform sequential state discrimination of two coherent states. For this purpose, we consider not only binary phase-shifting-key (BPSK) signals but also general coherent states, with arbitrary prior probabilities. Since ...
