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.
Gr@v is organizing a 3-day workshop on numerical methods to construct axially symmetric, stationary spacetimes, comparing different approaches and codes. The event will take place on May 22-24, 2023, with the first day having a fixed scientific programme and the other two days left for unscheduled interaction amongst the participants.
American Physical Society invited the authors of the paper "Exotic Compact Objects and the fate of the light ring instability" to participate in the APS Journal Club (JC), dedicated to selected papers published in Physical Review Letters. It was the first time this JC was dedicated to a gravity paper. The video recording of the session will be found in the JC webpage.
Our group organized the "State of the art techniques in Strong Gravity" Meeting, in São Pedro do Sul 26-28 April 2023 as a retreat type meeting to exchange ideas. The inspiring discussions will certainly foster new research!
Gr@v Ph.D. student E. Costa presented a seminar on the "Proca-Higgs model" in the Mini-Workshop "New Horizons for Horizonless Physics" at the Galileo Galilei Institute in Florence, Italy.
C. Herdeiro presented an invited colloquium at the U. Tubingen. Thank you to D. Doneva and the whole group for the warm and scientifically stimulating hospitality!
Carlos and Eugen visited the birthplace of Einstein: "Here stood the house where Albert Einstein came to the world on March 14 1879." The building was destroyed in a WWII bombing in December 1944.
