Precision tests of general relativity are being developed enthusiastically on many fronts, but there is not enough communication between researchers working across different distance scales — the observables, parametrization frameworks, and even alternative theories are different and hard to compare. The aim of this workshop is to develop a sort of “lingua franca” for those working on cosmological and strong-field tests of gravity, the eventual aim being the ability to usefully interpret observational results across the two fields.
We will have lectures from:
- Niayesh Afshordi (Perimeter Institute)
- Tessa Baker (U Penn)
- Clare Burrage (Nottingham)
- Vitor Cardoso (IST Lisbon)
- Lam Hui (Columbia)
- Kazuya Koyama (ICG Portsmouth)
- Ira Rothstein (Carnegie Mellon)
- Jeremy Sakstein (ICG Portsmouth)
- Thomas Sotiriou (Nottingham)
- Norbert Wex (MPIfR, Bonn)
- Kent Yagi (Princeton)
Please see the schedule for more details.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Walter Burke Institute for Theoretical Physics.
