  • Decomposable (6, 5)-solutions in 11-dimensional supergravity
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.487) Pub Date : 2020-05-27
    Ioannis Chrysikos and Anton Galaev

    This paper presents a series of constructions providing 11-dimensional bosonic supergravity backgrounds. In particular, we treat Lorentzian manifolds given in terms of twisted products of six-dimensional Lorentzian manifolds and five-dimensional Riemannian manifolds. By considering a representative flux 4-form adapted to this setting, we analyse the system of bosonic supergravity equations and describe

  • Electromagnetic vacuum fluctuations and topologically induced motion of a charged particle
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.487) Pub Date : 2020-05-26
    C H G Bessa and M J Rebou̧as

    We show that nontrivial topologies of the spatial section of Minkowski space–time allow for motion of a charged particle under quantum vacuum fluctuations of the electromagnetic field. This is a potentially observable effect of these fluctuations. We derive the mean squared velocity dispersion when the charged particle lies in Minkowski space–time with compact spatial sections in one, two and/or three

  • New perspectives on the TOV equilibrium from a dual null approach

    The TOV equation appears as the relativistic counterpart of the classical condition for hydrostatic equilibrium. In the present work we aim at showing that a generalised TOV equation also characterises the equilibrium of models endowed with other symmetries besides spherical. We apply the dual null formalism to spacetimes with two dimensional spherical, planar and hyperbolic symmetries with a perfect

  • Axisymmetric gravity in real Ashtekar variables: the quantum theory
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.487) Pub Date : 2020-05-18
    Rodolfo Gambini, Esteban Mato and Jorge Pullin

    In a previous paper we formulated axisymmetric general relativity in terms of real Ashtekar–Barbero variables. Here we proceed to quantize the theory. We are able to implement Thiemann’s version of the Hamiltonian constraint. This provides a 2 + 1 dimensional arena to test ideas for the dynamics of quantum gravity and opens the possibility of quantum studies of rotating black hole spacetimes.

  • On the quantum structure of space-time, gravity, and higher spin in matrix models
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.487) Pub Date : 2020-05-18
    Harold C Steinacker

    In this introductory review, we argue that a quantum structure of space-time naturally entails a higher-spin theory, to avoid significant Lorentz violation. A suitable framework is provided by Yang–Mills matrix models, which allow to consider space-time as a physical system, which is treated on the same footing as the fields that live on it. We discuss a specific quantum space-time solution, whose

    Stefan Hollands, Robert M Wald and Jochen Zahn

    In classical general relativity, the values of fields on spacetime are uniquely determined by their values at an initial time within the domain of dependence of this initial data surface. However, it may occur that the spacetime under consideration extends beyond this domain of dependence, and fields, therefore, are not entirely determined by their initial data. This occurs, for example, in the well-known

    The odd parity gravitational quasi-normal mode spectrum of black holes with non-trivial scalar hair in Horndeski gravity is investigated. We study ‘almost’ Schwarzschild black holes such that any modifications to the spacetime geometry (including the scalar field profile) are treated as small quantities.

    We construct a quasi-inertial reference system for the atom interferometer in terms of the light-field compensation, which is equivalent to the establishment of a quantum drag-free system. The compensation considered in our approach involves feedbacks of both classical and quantum nature. As a result, it may significantly reduce the dependence of the interferometric phase shift on the atomic initial

    The scalar–tensor theory can be formulated in both Jordan and Einstein frames, which are conformally related together with a redefinition of the scalar field. As the solution to the equation of the scalar field in the Jordan frame does not have the one-to-one correspondence with that in the Einstein frame, we give a criterion along with some specific models to check if the scalar field in the Einstein

    Pulsar timing arrays have yet to convincingly observe gravitational waves. Some time ago it was pointed out by one of the authors that a dramatic enhancement of the signal would take place for particular values of the angle subtended by the source and the observed pulsar. This enhancement is due to the fact that waves propagate in a Friedmann–Lemaitre–Robertson–Walker metric where, contrary to some

  • A variational approach to relativistic superfluid vortex elasticity
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.487) Pub Date : 2020-03-26
    N Andersson, S Wells and G L Comer

    It is well known that a superfluid rotates by forming an array of quantized vortices. A relativistic formulation for superfluid vortex dynamics is required for a range of problems in astrophysics and cosmology, from neutron star interiors and radio pulsar glitches to possible dark matter condensates on galactic scales. This paper develops a formalism for such systems, extending the well-established

  • Cosmological solutions of the non-minimally coupled Weyl connection gravity theories
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.487) Pub Date : 2020-03-26
    Rodrigo Baptista and Orfeu Bertolami

    We consider a non-minimally coupled curvature–matter gravity model (NMC) with a Weyl connection, a theory referred to as non-minimally coupled Weyl connection gravity (NMCWCG). The Weyl connection is an affine connection that is not compatible with the metric, and involves a vector field. Assuming a vacuum expectation value for the vector field and a matter Lagrangian that only contains the contributions

  • Force-free electrodynamics near rotation axis of a Kerr black hole
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.487) Pub Date : 2020-03-26
    Gianluca Grignani, Troels Harmark and Marta Orselli

    Despite their potential importance for understanding astrophysical jets, physically realistic exact solutions for magnetospheres around Kerr black holes have not been found, even in the force-free approximation. Instead approximate analytical solutions such as the Blandford–Znajek (split-)monopole, as well as numerical solutions, have been constructed. In this paper we consider a new approach to the

  • On the initial geometry of a vacuum cosmological spacetime
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.487) Pub Date : 2020-03-26
    John Lott

    In the first part of this paper we consider expanding vacuum cosmological spacetimes with a free T N -action. Among them, we give evidence that Gowdy spacetimes have AVTD (asymptotic velocity term dominated) behavior for their initial geometry, in any dimension. We then give sufficient conditions to reach a similar conclusion about a T 2 -invariant four dimensional nonGowdy spacetime. In the second

  • Gauge-invariant bounce from loop quantum gravity
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.487) Pub Date : 2020-03-26
    Klaus Liegener and Parampreet Singh

    We present a gauge-invariant treatment of singularity resolution using loop quantum gravity techniques with respect to local SU(2) transformations. Our analysis reveals many novel features of quantum geometry which were till now hidden in models based on non-gauge-invariant discretizations. Quantum geometric effects resolve the big bang singularity replacing it with a non-singular bounce when spacetime

  • Gravity Spy: integrating advanced LIGO detector characterization, machine learning, and citizen science.
    Classical Quant. Grav. Pub Date : 2017-01-01
    M Zevin,S Coughlin,S Bahaadini,E Besler,N Rohani,S Allen,M Cabero,K Crowston,A K Katsaggelos,S L Larson,T K Lee,C Lintott,T B Littenberg,A Lundgren,C Østerlund,J R Smith,L Trouille,V Kalogera

    With the first direct detection of gravitational waves, the advanced laser interferometer gravitational-wave observatory (LIGO) has initiated a new field of astronomy by providing an alternative means of sensing the universe. The extreme sensitivity required to make such detections is achieved through exquisite isolation of all sensitive components of LIGO from non-gravitational-wave disturbances.
