Gr@v is a team of researchers, based at the University of Aveiro, Portugal, working on gravitational physics in the context of astrophysics, cosmology and high energy physics. The group was established in 2010. In January 2015 Gr@v integrated the FCT funded CIDMA research unit (project UID/MAT/04106/2013), as the Gravitational Geometry and Dynamics research group.
In a recent remarkable work just published in Physical Review Letters as an Editor's suggestion, William East and Frans Pretorius (E&P) studied the non-linear growth of the superradiant instability. And the endpoint matches hairy black holes discovered by the Gr@v team. Read here a viewpoint article by Sam Dolan.
The XXVII National Meeting of Astronomy and Astrophysics (ENAA) took place on the 20-21 July at the University of Lisbon. Gr@v contributed to the scientific committee (A. Correia) and to the public event (C. Herdeiro) under the Ignite format.
"90 seconds of Ciencia" is a daily programme of the National Public Radio, Antena 1. Hear in this link the contribution of Gr@v researchers to this excellent show that makes accessible to a larger audience the research made in Portugal, across all fields of knowledge.
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:
