Gravitation @ Aveiro University

"New frontiers in dynamical gravity" workshop

An outstanding workshop took place at the University of Cambridge, with participation of Gr@v members M. Sampaio and C. Herdeiro. The latter presented a talk on "Kerr black holes with scalar hair", based on arXiv:1403.2757 in collaboration with E. Radu.

"Introduction to Numerical Relativity" course

Numerical Relativity is an exciting research tool for studying relativistic gravity in a computer. Post-doctoral researcher and Gr@v member Juan Carlos Degollado will be presenting a course on "Introduction to Numerical Relativity", starting on February 24th 2014. Further details can be found here.

Physics Nobel Prize 2013

The Physics Nobel Prize 2013 was awarded to F. Englert and P. Higgs, "for the theoretical discovery of a mechanics that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles". A great day for particle physics! Read here an account by Gr@v researchers.

Thomas Metcalf visits Gr@v

Thomas Metcalf, a graduate student from the University of Edinburgh, is visiting our group from October to December 2013. Thomas is currently working with João Rosa in particle physics and cosmological models of warm inflation.
