Alexandre Pombo is now a Master

Alexandre Pombo successfully finished his Physics M.Sc. at Aveiro University, on October 10th 2017, by defending a thesis with title "Q-balls spectroscopy and construction of boson stars". This thesis was supervised by Gr@v researchers and examined by Prof. Yves Brihaye, from the University of Mons, Belgium. Well done Alexandre!

Helgi Rúnarsson Ph.D. exam

Carolina Benone's PhD exam

Carolina Benone successfully defended her PhD thesis "Scalar fields in black hole spacetimes and analogues". The exam took place in U. Federal do Pará, in Belém, Brazil, on July 14th 2017. The thesis was supervised by Luis Crispino (UFPa) and Gr@v member C. Herdeiro. Congratulations Carolina!

Numerical data and Mathematica notebooks for quasi-Kerr hairy black holes

Here, the numerical data described in Fig. 4 of the paper "Kerr black holes with synchronised hair: an analytic model and dynamical formation", arXiv:1706.06597, together with an explanatory pdf file and two Mathematica notebooks, is made available for public use.

The data consists of four solutions of Kerr black holes with scalar hair and six solutions of Kerr black holes with Proca hair. These families of solutions were first presented in the papers:
