Gravitational wave experiments and early universe cosmology
Gravitational-wave experiments with interferometers and with resonant masses can search for stochastic backgrounds of gravitational waves of cosmological origin. We review both experimental andExpand

A generalized uncertainty principle in quantum gravity
We discuss a Gedanken experiment for the measurement of the area of the apparent horizon of a black hole in quantum gravity. Using rather general and model-independent considerations we find aExpand

The Halo Mass Function from Excursion Set Theory. I. Gaussian fluctuations with non-markovian dependence on the smoothing scale
A classic method for computing the mass function of dark matter halos is provided by excursion set theory, where density perturbations evolve stochastically with the smoothing scale, and the problemExpand

When a classical black hole is perturbed, its relaxation is governed by a set of quasinormal modes with complex frequencies omega=omega R +i omega I. We show that this behavior is the same as that ofExpand

A ug 2 00 0 Stochastic backgrounds of gravitational waves
We review the motivations for the search of stochastic backgrounds of gravitational waves and we compare the experimental sensitivities that can be reached in the near future with the existing boundsExpand

The algebraic structure of the generalized uncertainty principle
We show that a deformation of the Heisenberg algebra which depends on a dimensionful parameter κ is the algebraic structure which underlies the generalized uncertainty principle in quantum gravity.Expand

The Halo Mass Function from Excursion Set Theory. II. The Diffusing Barrier
In excursion set theory the computation of the halo mass function is mapped into a first-passage time process in the presence of a barrier, which in the spherical collapse model is a constant and inExpand

Science Case for the Einstein Telescope
The Einstein Telescope (ET), a proposed European ground-based gravitational-wave detector of third-generation, is an evolution of second-generation detectors such as Advanced LIGO, Advanced Virgo,Expand
