  • Horizon hair from inversion symmetry
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.071) Pub Date : 2021-01-07
    Karan Fernandes, Debodirna Ghosh and Amitabh Virmani

    The extreme Reissner–Nordström (ERN) solution has a discrete conformal isometry that maps the future event horizon to future null infinity and vice versa, the Couch–Torrence (CT) inversion isometry. We study the dynamics of a probe Maxwell field on the ERN solution in light of this symmetry. We present a gauge fixing that is compatible with the inversion symmetry. The gauge fixing allows us to relate

  • The distributional stress–energy quadrupole
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.071) Pub Date : 2021-01-06
    Jonathan Gratus, Paolo Pinto and Spyridon Talaganis

    We investigate stress–energy tensors constructed from the delta function on a worldline. We concentrate on quadrupoles as they make an excellent model for the dominant source of gravitational waves and have significant novel features. Unlike the dipole, we show that the quadrupole has 20 free components which are not determined by the properties of the stress–energy tensor. These need to be derived

    BepiColombo ESA/JAXA mission is currently in its 7 year cruise phase towards Mercury. The Mercury orbiter radioscience experiment (MORE), one of the 16 experiments of the mission, will start its scientific investigation during the superior solar conjunction (SSC) in March 2021 with a test of general relativity (GR). Other solar conjunctions will follow during the cruise phase, providing several opportunities

  • Null geodesics and improved unique continuation for waves in asymptotically anti-de Sitter spacetimes
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.071) Pub Date : 2020-12-31
    Alex McGill and Arick Shao

    We consider the question of whether solutions of Klein–Gordon equations on asymptotically anti-de Sitter spacetimes can be uniquely continued from the conformal boundary. Positive answers were first given in [15, 16], under suitable assumptions on the boundary geometry and with boundary data imposed over a sufficiently long timespan. The key step was to establish Carleman estimates for Klein–Gordon

    The Lewis solutions describe the exterior gravitational field produced by infinitely long rotating cylinders, and are useful models for global gravitational effects. When the metric parameters are real (Weyl class), the exterior metrics of rotating and static cylinders are locally indistinguishable, but known to globally differ.

    We consider vacuum spacetimes with a crushing singularity. Under some scale-invariant curvature bounds, we relate the existence of Kasner-like regions to the asymptotics of spatial volume densities.

    We construct a class of conserved currents for linearized gravity on a Kerr background. Our procedure, motivated by the current for scalar fields discovered by Carter (1977), is given by taking the symplectic product of solutions to the linearized Einstein equations that are defined by symmetry operators. We consider symmetry operators that are associated with separation of variables in the Teukolsky

    The Kerr spacetime is perhaps the most astrophysically important of the currently known exact solutions to the Einstein field equations. Whenever spacetimes can be put in unit-lapse form it becomes possible to identify some very straightforward timelike geodesics, (the ‘rain’ geodesics), making the physical interpretation of these spacetimes particularly clean and elegant. The most well-known of these

    In loop quantum gravity (LQG) the quantisation of general relativity leads to precise predictions for the eigenvalues of geometrical observables like volume and area, up to the value of the only free parameter of the theory, the Barbero–Immirzi (BI) parameter. With the help of the eigenvalues equation for the area operator, LQG successfully derives the Bekenstein–Hawking entropy of large black holes

    We study asymptotically AdS generalizations of Melvin spacetimes, describing gravitationally bound tubes of magnetic flux. We find that narrow fluxtubes, carrying strong magnetic fields but little total flux, are approximately unchanged from the Λ = 0 case at scales smaller than the AdS scale. However, fluxtubes with weak fields, which for Λ = 0 can grow arbitrarily large in radius and carry unbounded

    Galactic cosmic rays and solar energetic particles charge gold-platinum, free-falling test masses (TMs) on board interferometers for the detection of gravitational waves in space. The charging process induces spurious forces on the test masses that affect the sensitivity of these instruments mainly below 10 −3 Hz.

    Govind Menon

    This paper describes the electrodynamics of a null and force-free field in completely geometric terms. As was previously established in Menon (2020 Class. Quantum Grav. 37 245006), solutions to force-free electrodynamics are governed by the existence of certain special types of foliations of spacetime. Here the nature of the foliations in a coordinate-free formalism in the null case is prescribed.

    We extend previous work (2020 Class. Quantum Grav. 37 075001) to the case of Maxwell’s equations with a source. Our work shows how to construct a vector potential for the Maxwell field on the Kerr–Newman background in a radiation gauge.

    In this paper, we consider dynamical Chern–Simons gravity with the identification of the scalar field coupled though the Pontryagin density with the axion dark matter, and we discuss the effects of the parametric resonance on gravitational waves (GWs).

    We study stable circular orbits in spherically symmetric AdS black holes in various dimensions and their limiting innermost stable circular orbits. We provide analytic expressions for their size, angular velocity and angular momentum in a large black hole mass regime. The dual interpretation is in terms of meta-stable states not thermalising in typical thermal scales and whose existence is due to non-perturbative

    The acceleration of the Universe is described as a consequence of the extrinsic curvature of a four dimensional space–time embedded in a five dimensional bulk space, defined by the Einstein–Hilbert principle. Using the linear approximation of the Nash–Greene embedding theorem, we obtain the related perturbed equations in which only the gravitational-tensor field equations contribute to the propagation

    Oscillons are dense nonperturbative objects that may be copiously produced in the preheating period after inflation. Oscillon preheatings are usually simulated with nonlinear matter interactions but in a rigid FLRW background, without taking into account the gravitational backreactions. We investigate the oscillon preheating scenario in full general relativity with a full numerical relativity scheme

Explicit analytic formulae are derived for the orbital radius and the corresponding opening angle fixing the cone. Furthermore, we prove that these orbits based on a saddle point in the effective potential are Jacobi unstable. This completes the stability

Here this symmetry is re derived and the unique Poisson bracket on the Geroch group which makes its action on the gravitational phase space Lie–Poisson is obtained. Two possible notions of asymptotic

  • Pancakes as opposed to Swiss cheese

    S Nájera and R A Sussman

    We examine a novel class of toy models of cosmological inhomogeneities by smoothly matching along a suitable hypersurface an arbitrary number of sections of ‘quasi flat’ inhomogeneous and anisotropic Szekeres-II models to sections of any spatially flat cosmology that can be described by the Robertson–Waker metric (including de Sitter, anti de Sitter and Minkowski spacetimes). The resulting ‘pancake’

  • The structure of covtree: searching for manifestly covariant causal set dynamics
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.071) Pub Date : 2020-12-10
    Stav Zalel

    Covtree—a partial order on certain sets of finite, unlabeled causal sets—is a manifestly covariant framework for causal set dynamics. Here, as a first step in picking out a class of physically well-motivated covtree dynamics, we study the structure of covtree and the relationship between its paths and their corresponding infinite unlabeled causal sets. We identify the paths which correspond to posts

  • Fiducial displacements with improved accuracy for the global network of gravitational wave detectors
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.071) Pub Date : 2020-12-10
    D Bhattacharjee, Y Lecoeuche, S Karki, J Betzwieser, V Bossilkov, S Kandhasamy, E Payne and R L Savage

    As sensitivities improve and more detectors are added to the global network of gravitational wave observatories, calibration accuracy and precision are becoming increasingly important. Photon calibrators, relying on power-modulated auxiliary laser beams reflecting from suspended interferometer optics, enable continuous calibration by generating displacement fiducials proportional to the modulated laser

    One crucial problem in relativistic astrophysics is that of the nature of black hole candidates. It is usually assumed that astrophysical black holes are described by the Schwarzschild or Kerr space–times; however, there is no direct evidence to assert this. Moreover, there are various solutions in general relativity that can be alternatives to black holes, usually called black hole mimickers. In this

  • Acceleration of charged particles from near-extremal rotating black holes embedded in magnetic fields
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.071) Pub Date : 2020-12-10
    C H Coimbra-Araújo and R C Anjos

    The aim of the present article is to evaluate the motion of neutral and charged test particles in the vicinity of a near-extremal rotating black hole (BH) in the presence of magnetic fields. Euler–Lagrange motion equations and effective potential methods are used to characterize the motion out of the equatorial plane. Such approach is of peculiar significance if it is considered, e.g., accretion processes

  • Accelerating the evaluation of inspiral–merger–ringdown waveforms with adapted grids
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.071) Pub Date : 2020-12-10
    Cecilio García-Quirós, Sascha Husa, Maite Mateu-Lucena and Angela Borchers

    This paper presents an algorithm to accelerate the evaluation of inspiral–merger–ringdown waveform models for gravitational wave data analysis. While the idea can also be applied in the time domain, here we focus on the frequency domain, which is most typically used to reduce computational cost in gravitational wave data analysis. Our work extends the idea of multibanding Vinciguerra S et al (2017

  • Fast frequency-domain effective fly-by waveforms
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.071) Pub Date : 2020-12-10
    Nicholas Loutrel

    Recently, we developed effective fly-by (EFB) waveforms designed to model the burst of gravitational radiation from highly eccentric binaries. We here present a faster to evaluate frequency domain EFB waveform. The waveform is constructed through the use of asymptotic expansions of hypergeometric functions. Since the waveform is fully analytic, we study the accuracy to which the binary’s parameters

  • Generalized scalar field cosmologies: a global dynamical systems formulation
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.071) Pub Date : 2020-12-10
    Genly Leon and Felipe Orlando Franz Silva

    Local and global phase-space descriptions and averaging methods are used to find qualitative features of solutions for the FLRW and the Bianchi I metrics in the context of scalar field cosmologies with arbitrary potentials and arbitrary couplings to matter. The stability of the equilibrium points in a phase-space as well as the dynamics in the regime where the scalar field diverges are studied. Equilibrium

  • Covariant Noether charges for type IIB and 11-dimensional supergravities
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.071) Pub Date : 2020-12-10
    Óscar J C Dias, Gavin S Hartnett and Jorge E Santos

    The covariant Noether charge formalism (also known as the covariant phase method) of Wald and collaborators, including its cohomological extension, is a manifestly covariant Hamiltonian formalism that, in principle, allows one to define and compute the energy, angular momenta, and chemical potentials of generic solutions of gravitational theories. However, it has been observed that for some supergravity

  • BRST deformations and stability in the higher derivative Chern–Simons gauge theory
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.071) Pub Date : 2020-12-09

    We show the procedure of BRST deformations of the free Chern–Simons gauge theory with the higher derivatives in antifield formalism and obtain the consistent interactions in the master action at different orders. The key ingredient in our analysis is the local BRST-cohomology which plays a crucial role in the determination of the first-order deformation, also the Jacobi identity is needed since it

  • Lorentzian spectral geometry with causal sets
    Classical Quant. Grav. (IF 3.071) Pub Date : 2020-12-05
    Yasaman K Yazdi, Marco Letizia and Achim Kempf

    We study discrete Lorentzian spectral geometry by investigating to what extent causal sets can be identified through a set of geometric invariants such as spectra. We build on previous work where it was shown that the spectra of certain operators derived from the causal matrix possess considerable but not complete power to distinguish causal sets. We find two especially successful methods for classifying

    Ludovico Machet and Jinzhao Wang

    We study the continuum limit of the Benincasa–Dowker–Glaser causal set action on a causally convex compact region. In particular, we compute the action of a causal set randomly sprinkled on a small causal diamond in the presence of arbitrary curvature in various spacetime dimensions. In the continuum limit, we show that the action admits a finite limit. More importantly, the limit is composed by an
