We examine the existence of closed timelike curves (CTCs) in a singular spacetime which preserves the Weak Energy Condition everywhere outside the singularities. We propose a model spacetime… Expand

We examine closed timelike curves (CTCs) and "effective" superluminal travel in a spacetime containing naked line singularities, which we call "wires". Each wire may be straight-line singularity or a… Expand

When an ultra-high energy neutrino or cosmic-ray strikes the Lunar surface a radio-frequency pulse is emitted. We plan to use the LOFAR radio telescope to detect these pulses. In this work we propose… Expand

The purpose of this MQP is to examine candidate materials for the beam window of an ADS reactor. ADS stands for Accelerator Driven System, a means of spallating atomic nuclei to produce controlled… Expand

We solve the 2+1-dimensional Teukolsky equation numerically for the Weyl scalars $\psi_0$ and $\psi_4$ along a time-like geodesic approaching the Cauchy horizon of a rapidly rotating perturbed Kerr… Expand
