Gr@v is a team of researchers, based at the Mathematics and Physics Department of Aveiro University, Portugal, working on strong gravity 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.
Springer published the book "Modified and quantum gravity: from theory to experimental searches on all scales" (2023), with a contribution from Gr@v.
The XIV School of the Division of Gravitation and Mathematical Physics of the Mexican Physics Society and the VIIIth Scalar field dark matter workshop took place from 25-29 Sep 2023 and 29-30 Sep 2023 in Cancun, Mexico. Gr@v members C. Herdeiro and H. Olivares, as well as former member J. C. Degollado were amongst the invited speaks, and A. Morais presented also a communication.
A call for a 2-year post-doctoral research fellowship in Strong Gravity, within the research grant Gravitational waves, black holes, and fundamental physics, 2022.04560.PTDC, is now open until 11 October 2023. To apply, please see the Euraxess announcement here.
The XVI Black Holes Workshop will take place on 19-20 December 2023 at Porto University, co-organized by our group. More info can be found here.
The "New horizons for Psi school and workshop" will take place at IST Lisbon, 1-5 July 2024, with the participation of Gr@v members as speakers.
The paper "Two spinning black holes balanced by their synchronised scalar hair", describing the first construction of two asymptotically flat, neutral, spinning black holes in equilibrium, regular on and outside their event horizon, supported by their "hair", was published in Physical Review Letters and highlighted as Editors' Suggestion.
A call for a 2-year post-doctoral grant in Strong Gravity, within the research grant Gravitational waves, black holes, and fundamental physics, 2022.04560.PTDC, is open from 1 to 20 August 2023. See attached document for details or the Euraxess announcement here.
