The Speed of Gravity

Regular Seminar Claudia de Rham (Imperial College London)

14:00 QMW
room G O Jones 610

The recent direct detection of gravitational waves marks the beginning of a new era for physics and astronomy with an opportunity the probe gravity at its most fundamental level and have already been used to successfully constrain or rule out many effective field theories relevant for cosmology. I will discuss the strengths and limitations of these constraints and explore other complementary approaches in segregating between various effective field theories.
