SageManifolds 1.3 is out

SageMath 8.3 has just been released and is shipped with version 1.3 of SageManifolds code. SageMath is a Python-based free computer algebra system, with some differential geometry and tensor calculus capabilities implemented via the SageManifolds project (https://sagemanifolds.obspm.fr/). See https://sagemanifolds.obspm.fr/examples.html for examples of use, in particular in the context of general relativity.

The new features with respect to version 1.2 of SageManifolds are:

– submanifolds and their geometry (induced metric, extrinsic curvature, etc.)
– Euclidean spaces as Riemannian manifolds diffeomorphic to R^n and equipped with a flat metric, with predefined coordinate charts (Cartesian, spherical, cylindrical); this allows for elementary vector calculus in standard curvilinear coordinates, see https://sagemanifolds.obspm.fr/vector_calculus.html
– tensor fields along a submanifold

See https://sagemanifolds.obspm.fr/changelog.html for details and examples.

It suffices to upgrade to SageMath 8.3 to benefit from these features. Binaries for Linux, MacOS X and Windows are available at http://www.sagemath.org/download.html.
Another option is to run SageMath 8.3 remotely, by creating a free account in CoCalc (https://cocalc.com/): open a Jupyter notebook and select “SageMath 8.3” in the menu Kernel -> Change kernel.

Testing Gravity 2019, Vancouver, Canada

The registration is currently open for the 3rd Testing Gravity conference at SFU Harbour Centre in Vancouver, January 23-26, 2019. Like the 2015 and the 2017 meetings, TG2019 will feature the latest updates from the gravitational wave detectors, laboratory tests, cosmological surveys and other experiments, as well as discussions of recent theoretical advances.

Testing Gravity remains a topical theme because of the unexplained nature of Dark Matter and Dark Energy and the long-standing failure to reconcile gravity with quantum physics. The Testing Gravity conference series aims to provide theorists working on extensions of General Relativity with a realistic perspective on what aspects of their theories can be tested. On the other hand, the experimentalists and observers get a chance to learn about new ideas that their experiments can test.

There will be a one-day “school” on Wednesday, January 23rd, featuring five review lectures covering the key topics of the conference. The main conference, January 24-26, will include invited and contributed talks, and a poster session.

To register and for further information, including special accommodation rates, please visit the conference website.

SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT

With the detection of the binary black hole merger GW150914, we have entered the era of Gravitational Wave Astronomy, while the detection of the binary neutron star merger GW170817 was the first example of Gravitational Wave Multi-messenger observations. In the coming years, additional science runs with the LIGO and VIRGO detectors are expected to lead to exciting new discoveries, with KAGRA and LIGO-India subsequently joining the existing detectors and forming a global network. In parallel, new upgrades and new detectors are planned, whereas space-born gravitational wave detectors, such as LISA, are under intense development.

The main goal of this school is to provide an introduction to the foundations of Gravitational Waves, including theory, numerical simulations, principles of detection and astrophysical implications. Neutron Stars will be discussed in detail as one of the prime sources of gravitational waves, emphasizing the key role that gravitational wave astronomy can play in constraining the theory of gravity observationally.

The Aristotle University of Thessaloniki will welcome around 30 MSc and PhD students to attend the summer school, which will introduce them to key concepts in this exciting field as well as provide them with an opportunity to interact with experts. Advanced undergraduate students that are engaged in research projects related to the theme of the summer school may also apply.

The program of the summer school will consist of several 90’ minutes lectures on each morning, with additional exercise-style lectures and talks by members of the DAAD collaboration on each afternoon. Indicative titles for the lectures are:

1) Theory of gravitational waves
2) Compact object oscillations and GW asteroseismology
3) Constraints on the neutron star equation of state
4) Magnetars and core-collapse supernovae
4) Compact objects in alternative theories of gravity
5) GW detectors: LIGO/VIRGO and planned 3rd generation detectors
6) LISA mission and science

Energy conditions in quantum theory and gravity, York, UK (2nd announcement)

The workshop “Energy conditions in quantum theory and gravity” will be held from September 20-21, 2018 at the University of York (UK) in the historic King’s Manor.

Registration is now open until September 1st. For more information and registration visit the workshop website: https://sites.google.com/a/york.ac.uk/energy-conditions-in-quantum-theory-and-gravity

Classical energy conditions were introduced as a means of codifying generic properties of matter in general relativity. They play key roles in the singularity theorems of Hawking and Penrose and in many other results of mathematical relativity. However, not all models of classical matter obey the pointwise energy conditions, and quantum fields cannot obey any of them. This workshop will address two main themes, bringing together experts in both areas: (a) the use of weakened energy conditions in classical relativity, (b) the Quantum Energy Inequalities that can be proved for various quantum field theory models, and their consequences. In addition, related topics in mathematical relativity and quantum field theory will be discussed.

This workshop also falls in the 40th anniversary year of the first paper on energy inequalities in quantum field theory. [LH Ford, Proc.Roy.Soc.Lond. A364 (1978) 227-236]

Analytics, Inference, and Computation in Cosmology: Advanced methods, Cargese France

Cosmology is about understanding the origin and evolution of the universe and the formation of all structure within it — one of the most challenging intellectual projects undertaken by humanity. To make progress, we need the most powerful mathematical methods available: analytics to guide us through subtle theoretical issues, simulations to compute the detailed quantitative predictions of the theory, and statistical inference to confront these predictions with large cosmological data sets.

The IHP trimester entitled “Analytics, Inference, and Computation in Cosmology,” will be dedicated not only to the “what” and the “why” but also, and specifically, to the “how” of cosmological calculation. Is the mathematical toolset of cosmology adequate for the challenges ahead? Where do we need new ideas?

Whether it be on advances in analytical techniques, innovative computational methods or new ways to infer cosmological information from cosmological data, this trimester will be an occasion to gather the leading experts from around the world to share their expertise, spark new ideas and collaborations, and equip the next generation of cosmologists with the innovative mathematical tools we need as we enter a new era in precision cosmology.

The trimester will consist of an introductory school in Corsica followed by a three month programme at the IHP in Paris. A limited number of scholarships is still available for covering the expense of your stay at the IESC (accommodation and lunches), the dinners and travel expenses are NOT included.

Topics :
Effective Field Theory In Cosmology
Random Matrices
Bayesian Inference: Principles And Techniques
Computational Methods In Cosmology
Advanced Topics In (Bayesian) Data Analysis

Scale invariance in particle physics and cosmology, CERN, Switzerland

Theories with (classical or quantum) scale-invariance provide a dynamical origin of all mass scales and present a number of interesting aspects: they are an appealing framework to address the hierarchy problem and lead to naturally flat inflationary potentials and dark matter candidates. The aim of the theory institute is to discuss scale invariance in particle physics and cosmology. In particular, the inclusion of gravity in a scale-invariant framework might have far-reaching consequences and will be discussed at this meeting.

Gravitational Waves, Black Holes and Fundamental Physics, Athens, Greece

Athens 2019: Gravitational Waves, Black Holes and Fundamental Physics

Abstract: Athens 2019:GWverse2 is the second in a series of conferences from the COST Action ”CA 16104 Gravitational waves, black holes and fundamental physics (GWverse)”. The consortium links three normally disjoint communities, namely Gravitational Wave detection and analysis, BH modeling (in both astrophysical and GR contexts), and strong-gravity tests of fundamental physics. The aim of the conference is to bring about discussion and collaboration between people working in these communities.

Topics: Astrophysics (Super massive black hole growth and evolution, Transient observations, Numerical relativity, N-body dynamics, Binary formation and population synthesis, Dark matter and primordial Black Holes, Cosmography, Astroparticles, Dual AGN Observations, stellar mass BHs: growth, evolution and binary formation); Source modelling (Perturbation methods, Post-Newtonian and post-Minkowskian methods, Numerical Relativity, Effective and phenomenological methods, Impact on data analysis problem); Black holes and fundamental physics (Testing the Black Holes hypothesis, Strong field parameterizations, Black holes beyond General Relativity, Black hole perturbation theory and fundamental physics, Binaries in alternative theories of gravity)

Dynamical Horizons, Binary Coalescences, Simulations and Waveforms (2nd announcement), Penn State, USA

SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT:

The Institute for Gravitation and the Cosmos will hold a Focus Session to discuss novel ideas at the interface of post-Newtonian methods, horizon dynamics, numerical simulations and data analysis to create new tools to test the dynamical regime of full, non-linear general relativity through gravitational waves. It will be held at Penn State, University Park campus from July 16-19, 2018. The main session program will be over on July 18 but we will have additional information discussions on July 19.

Recently, interesting ideas have been put forward to extract information about the progenitors of compact binary collisions from gravitational wave signals using, e.g., post-Newtonian methods. There is potential to connect the post-Newtonian inspiral phase to the beginning of the formation of the common dynamical horizon, and then relate the non-linear process by which the dynamical horizon settles down to the waveforms seen in detectors. The Focus Session will bring together expertise in four areas with the hope of making significant advances: Post-Newtonian methods, mathematical GR, numerical GR and data analysis.

There will be a few talks in each area to bring everyone to the same wavelength and most of the session will be devoted to discussions aimed at cross-fertilization of ideas. Details on scientific organization will be available in due course.

Confirmed participants include: K.G. Arun, Abhay Ashtekar, Sina Bahrami, Eugenio Bianchi, Ofek Birnholtz, Ivan Booth, Ssohrab Borhanian, Manuela Campanelli, Ding Ding, Deborah Ferguson, Patrick Godwin, Anuradha Gupta, Brennan Ireland, Jose-Luis Jaramillo, Neev Khera, Bhavesh Khomesra, Lawrence Kidder, Badri Krishnan, Pablo Laguna, Cody Messick, Purnima Narayan, B. Sathyaprakash, Deirdre Shoemaker, Andrey Shoom and Yosef Zlochower.

FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT

With the detection of the binary black hole merger GW150914, we have entered the era of Gravitational Wave Astronomy, while the detection of the binary neutron star merger GW170817 was the first example of Gravitational Wave Multi-messenger observations. In the coming years, additional science runs with the LIGO and VIRGO detectors are expected to lead to exciting new discoveries, with KAGRA and LIGO-India subsequently joining the existing detectors and forming a global network. In parallel, new upgrades and new detectors are planned, whereas space-born gravitational wave detectors, such as LISA, are under intense development.

The main goal of this school is to provide an introduction to the foundations of Gravitational Waves, including theory, numerical simulations, principles of detection and astrophysical implications. Neutron Stars will be discussed in detail as one of the prime sources of gravitational waves, emphasizing the key role that gravitational wave astronomy can play in constraining the theory of gravity observationally.

The Aristotle University of Thessaloniki will welcome around 30 MSc and PhD students to attend the summer school, which will introduce them to key concepts in this exciting field as well as provide them with an opportunity to interact with experts. Advanced undergraduate students that are engaged in research projects related to the theme of the summer school may also apply.

The program of the summer school will consist of several 90’ minutes lectures on each morning, with additional exercise-style lectures and talks by members of the DAAD collaboration on each afternoon. Indicative titles for the lectures are:

1) Theory of gravitational waves
2) Compact object oscillations and GW asteroseismology
3) Constraints on the neutron star equation of state
4) Magnetars and core-collapse supernovae
4) Compact objects in alternative theories of gravity

Postdoctoral Fellowships in Multi-messenger Astrophysics at the RIT, Rochester, USA

Postdoctoral Fellowships in Multi-messenger Astrophysics at the Rochester Institute of Technology, New York

The recent observations of a binary neutron star merger using both gravitational wave interferometers as well as electromagnetic telescopes across the full spectrum have initiated the age of multi-messenger astronomy and astrophysics.

As part of several NASA and NSF collaborative projects, the RIT’s Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation (CCRG) is currently seeking to fill one or two postdoctoral research positions with highly qualified individuals interested pursuing research in the fields of numerical relativity, theoretical and computational astrophysics, with an emphasis on general relativistic magneto-hydrodynamics simulations.

We are particularly interested in relativistic magneto-hydrodynamics simulations of accretion disks around supermassive black hole mergers, and binary neutron star coalescences from prior to merger through to the formation of disks and/or collapse of the merged remnant, the production of jets, and launching of outflows. We are also interested perform “event-based” simulations, using parameters informed by specific LIGO/Virgo detections, and thereby permitting much closer comparison with observables, in order to interpret current and future multi-messenger observations by a wide array of current and future detectors.

The successful postdoctoral candidates will be Fellows of a new prestigious “Frontier in Gravitational-Wave Astrophysics” (FGWA) Program. Initially appointed for two or three years, the Fellows are renewable up to five years depending on satisfactory performance and the availability of funds.

Senior scientists in the group includes Manuela Campanelli (Director), Joshua Faber, Carlos Lousto, Richard O’Shaughnessy, Jason Nordhaus, Yosef Zlochower, Sukanya Chakrabarti, John Whelan, and Hans-Peter Bischof, several postdoctoral fellows and Ph.D. students (see http://ccrg.rit.edu/people for an overview on who is or has been at CCRG). The group is involved in several large collaborations, including the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC), The Einstein Toolkit Consortium (http://einsteintoolkit.org) and a NASA Theoretical and Computational Astrophysics Network (TCAN). CCRG researchers have access to several computing cluster facilities at national computing centers such as XSEDE and the NCSA’s Blue Waters Supercomputer (with an allocation of over 160MSUs), as well as a dedicated over 3000-core cluster hosted at the Center.

More information about the CCRG is available at http://ccrg.rit.edu/. And about Rochester at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rochester,_New_York
