SEMINAR:- Black Holes beyond General Relativity and Their Gravitational-Wave Signatures
Gravitational waves(GW) from black hole binaries bring us a unique window into extreme gravity phenomena that will allow us to perform high-precision tests of General Relativity(GR). However, in this talk the speaker will address a more ambitious question: could we observe signs of modified gravity using gravitational waves? He will focus on the case of higher-derivative corrections to Einstein’s theory, which are well-motivated from the viewpoints of effective and fundamental theory. The speaker will first introduce a general family of higher-derivative theories and he will show how the Kerr metric is modified by these corrections. Regarding GW observations, the quantities most sensitive to higher-derivative corrections are the black hole’s quasinormal modes, which rule the gravitational waves emitted by a perturbed black hole. Obtaining these quasinormal modes is a very challenging problem in the case of rotating black holes beyond GR, but the speaker will report recent progress in this direction and discuss future prospects.
