Special Simons/PCTS Seminar, Markus Kunesch (Queen Mary University of London) "Investigating singularities with numerical relativity"

Tue, Nov 14, 2017, 10:00 am

Abstract:

Our recent numerical simulations demonstrated that in higher dimensions even asymptotically flat black holes can break and give rise to naked singularities. This shows that if cosmic censorship were to hold in our universe, it would be a special property of four dimensional spacetimes. I will describe these results and outline other applications of the same numerical relativity code to cosmology, astrophysics, and AdS/CFT.
