My primary research activities belong to the general fields of Theoretical Astrophysics and Cosmology, Theory of Gravitation,
Statistical Mechanics. They may be summarized as follows: statistical mechanics and thermodynamics of gravitational interaction, Newtonian and relativistic; stability, structure, and dynamics of relativistic compact stars; stellar and galaxy clusters, black hole subclusters, and the dark sector.
