Gravitation and Relativity

We are involved in experiments on gravitation and their data analysis; gravitational waves; theories of gravity and tests; relativistic astrophysics; black holes; the initial value problem in general relativity; and the study of global aspects of the gravitational field. In all cases we aim to set these studies in a cosmological or astrophysical context.

In this research area a typical PhD project might consist of

  • study and construction, by analytic and numerical methods, of initial data sets for the Einstein equations with particular desirable properties
  • analysis of asymptotic properties of the gravitational field at infinity or at a finite boundary, e.g. to characterize energy and momentum losses by radiation.
Members particularly interested in this area of research: Tim Clifton, Malcolm MacCallum, and Juan Valiente Kroon.
