Gravitational Physics

Gravitational physicists explore the implications of the general theory of relativity, in which gravity is a consequence of space and time curvature. This curve controls the movement of inert objects. Modern research in gravitational physics includes the study of numerical relativity, the dynamics of black holes the origins of gravitational radiation, the complex phenomenon of gravitational collapse, the initial value problem of general relativity, and the applications of relative astrophysics.

The Gravitational Physics Group is one of the largest research groups in the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy. We will focus on detecting and studying gravitational waves from astronomical systems such as black holes and binary neutron stars, supernovae and gamma-ray explosions. Group members also mimic leaders in the field of numerical relativity, using large groups of computers to collide with a black hole.
