WG3: Black holes and fundamental physics

Led by Thomas Sotiriou, Thomas.Sotiriou _at_ nottingham.ac.uk

 

 

New fields, new interactions or any departure from the textbook description of gravity or particle physics might very well make their first appearance in the strong gravity regime. The main goal of WG3 is to create links between fundamental physics and black holes observations, in search of new physics. In particular it aims to:
(i) use data from observations (WG1) and modelling (WG2) in order to vindicate/disprove theoretical predictions regarding the structure and properties of BHs;
(ii) obtain novel predictions and use them to guide targeted observations and modelling;
(iii) act as a link between this COST action and other communities (e.g. cosmology and theoretical physics).
A key activity of WG3 will be the “Gravity Data Group” initiative, which will collect and comprehensively present all constraints on gravity theories. This initiative will be cross-disciplinary and open to nonmembers of the action.
