Gravitational lensing provides an important probe of the background geometry.
In this talk, I discuss light propagation on non-Lorentzian backgrounds which
arise in two different contexts. Firstly, we consider optical geometry, which
is a formalism in 3-space for light propagation in Lorentzian spacetimes:

Pedro's farewell lunch

Gr@v members had a lunch get together to bid Pedro Cunha farewell. Starting next week, Pedro will join the Max Planck institute for gravitational physics (Albert Einstein Institute) in Germany, as a research fellow. And one of the best "Arroz de Tamboril" in the country will make sure Portugal and Aveiro will be missed! See you very soon Pedro!

Carlos Herdeiro joins Gr@v as Research Chair

Carlos A. R. Herdeiro, one of the founders of Gr@v, will rejoin the Aveiro University Gravity group as research chair (Investigador Coordenador de Carreira) from the academic year 2019/20, after one year at IST-Lisbon as Associate Professor.

Who coined the name "black hole"?

Conventional wisdom says the influential physicist John A. Wheeler coined the term black hole in 1968. But a deeper analysis reveals a much richer story, that starts centuries ago in a British India prision. This fascinating story features in the July 2018 edition of "Gazeta de Física", the newsletter of the Portuguese Physics Society, authored by C. Herdeiro and José S. Lemos (in Portuguese).
