• Computing the Arnold Tongue in the Zipoy-Voorhees Space-time 

      Sherif, Abbas Mohamed (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2017-03)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT : In this thesis I study the integrability of the geodesic equations of the ZipoyVoorhees metric. The Zipoy-Voorhees spacetime is a one parameter family of Stationary Axisymmetric Vacuum spacetimes (SAV’s) ...
    • Geodesics and resonances of the Manko-Novikov spacetime 

      Geyer, Marisa (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-03)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In this thesis I study compact objects described by the Manko-Novikov spacetime. The Manko- Novikov spacetime is an exact solution to the Einstein Field Equations that allows objects to be black hole-like, ...
