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.
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.
The XIV Black Holes Workshop will be held at the University of Aveiro, on 20-21 December 2021. Registration was open on September 1st 2021. See the webpage for more information.
C. Herdeiro was one of the invited lecturers of the 10th school on astrophysics and gravitation, held from 2-7 September at IST-Lisbon, delivering a course on "Theoretical and Observational Cosmology".
Zeus Sales Moreira a student from Universidade Federal do Pará, Brazil, successfully defended his M.Sc. thesis entitled “Black hole spacetimes: radiation emission and light rings” on July 29th. The thesis was advised by C. Herdeiro and L. Crispino and the examiners were E. Radu and G. Olmo (U. Valencia). Congratulations Zeus!
