Gr@v is a team of researchers, based at the Mathematics and Physics Department of Aveiro University, Portugal, working on strong gravity, astrophysics and high energy physics. The group was established in 2010. In January 2015 Gr@v integrated the FCT funded CIDMA research unit (UIDB/04106/2020 and UIDP/04106/2020), as the Gravitational Geometry and Dynamics research group. The group scientific coordinator is C. Herdeiro.
Rodrigo Vicente, a Ph.D. student co-advised in our group, successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis on "The Gravity of Classical Fields and its effect on the Dynamics of Gravitational Systems", at IST Lisbon on September 21st 2021. Congratulations Rodrigo!
The COST Advanced School on the "Physics of Dark Matter and Hidden Sectors" will take place in Lund, Sweeden, from October 18-21st 2021. Gr@v members C. Herdeiro, A. Morais and F. Freitas are amongst the invited lecturers.
The Gr@v paper "Kerr black holes with scalar hair" reached the landmark of 500 citations in the INSPIRE database.
The Spanish-Portuguese Relativity Meeting 2021 took place online from 13-16 September 2021, organized by our group. With over 200 registered participants and 95 talks (invited, contributed and one public lecture), the meeting exhibited the interdisciplinarity of this thriving field. Talk slides can be found in the program webpage. We hope to have a face to face EREP 2022!
Gr@v members António Morais and João Gonçalves participated, in-person, in the Workshop on the Standard Model and Beyond that was held at the Corfu Summer Institute, Greece, between the 29th of August and the 8th of September.
E. Barausse (SISSA, Italy) and C. Herdeiro (Gr@v) are the guest editors for a Classical and Quantum Gravity Focus issue on the Impact of EHT Observations for General Relativity. For more information see the focus issue webpage.
