Abstract: In this talk, we present whether the new ekpyrotic scenario
can be embedded into ten-dimensional supergravity. We use that the
scalar potential obtained from flux compactifications of type II
supergravity with sources has a universal scaling with respect to the
Gr@v members Pedro Cunha and Carlos Herdeiro were two of the speakers of the Workshop "Dynamics in Strong Gravity" that took place at the Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, Kyoto, Japan, 1-14 September 2018.
The XI Black Holes Workshop will take place at IST-Lisbon on 17-18 December 2018. The Black Holes Workshops gather researchers working on physical and mathematical problems of black holes, both in its classical and quantum aspects, as well as their connections to general relativity and gravitation, string theory, cosmology, and astrophysics, and stimulate the interaction between all these issues.
In a recent paper "Head on collisions of Proca Stars", [arXiv:1806.07779], by N. Sanchis-Gual et al., head-on collisions of exotic compact objects known as "Proca stars" were studied via fully non linear numerical simulations, with the goal of extracting the gravitational wave templates that such exotic objects could produce.
The purpose of this workshop, co-organised by Gr@v at the Yukawa Institute, Kyoto, Japan, is to bring together experts working on various aspects of strong gravity to develop the necessary techniques for capturing highly nonlinear phenomena in the truly strong gravity universe, by concerted effort of numerical and analytical methods.
