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 Felipe Freitas and their students João Pino and Pedro Rodrigues (from left to right on the picture) have participated in the 2020 edition of the CERN masterclass held at the University of Minho and organized by LIP - Laboratório de Instrumentação e Física Experimental de Partículas. The event took place on the 28th of February and on the 6th of March.
Here, the numerical data described in the paper "Black holes with synchronised Proca hair: linear clouds and fundamental non-linear solutions", arXiv:2004.09536 [gr-qc] , is made available for public use.
This data pertains the fundamental states (n=0) of these hairy black holes and spinning Proca stars. Some data for the excited states (n=1) was previously made available here.
Fabrizio di Giovanni gave us a nice update on the dynamical properties of bosonic stars, from numerical relativity simulations.
Kunihito Uzawa (Kwansei Gakuin U., Japan) gave us a nice update on the swampland conjecture and its implications in cosmology.
Gr@v member C. Herdeiro gave an invited colloquium at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences, U. Cambridge, of the GR and HEP groups on March 4th and an invited seminar at STAG, School of Mathematical Sciences, U. Southampton in March 5th.
Felipe Freitas, from Gr@v, gave us a nice introduction to Deep learning and its applications in Collider Phenomenology.
The VII Leopoldo Garcia--Colin Mexican Meeting on Mathematical and Experimental Physics took place at Colegio Nacional in Mexico City, from 12-21 February 2020. The meeting included a symposium on black holes and gravitational waves where Gr@v member C. Herdeiro gave a plenary invited lecture.
