Black hole and cosmological analysis of BF sequestered gravity
We study a minimal extension of a recently proposed modification of general relativity that draws on concepts from topological field theory to resolve aspects of the cosmological constant problem. In
Generalized Lense-Thirring metrics: higher-curvature corrections and solutions with matter
Abstract The Lense-Thirring spacetime describes a 4-dimensional slowly rotating approximate solution of vacuum Einstein equations valid to a linear order in rotation parameter. It is fully

Geodesic models of quasi-periodic-oscillations as probes of quadratic gravity
Future very large-area X-ray instruments (effective area larger than $>3$~m$^2$) will be able to measure the frequencies of quasi-periodic oscillations~(QPOs) observed in the X-ray flux from
Can the string scale be related to the cosmic baryon asymmetry
In a previous work, a mechanism was presented by which baryon asymmetry can be generated during inflation from elliptically polarized gravitons. Nonetheless, the mechanism only generated a realistic

A new theorem on space-time singularities is presented which largely incorporates and generalizes the previously known results. The theorem implies that space-time singularities are to be expected if
PSR J0030+0451 Mass and Radius from NICER Data and Implications for the Properties of Neutron Star Matter
Neutron stars are not only of astrophysical interest, but are also of great interest to nuclear physicists because their attributes can be used to determine the properties of the dense matter in
A NICER View of PSR J0030+0451: Millisecond Pulsar Parameter Estimation
We report on Bayesian parameter estimation of the mass and equatorial radius of the millisecond pulsar PSR J0030+0451, conditional on pulse-profile modeling of Neutron Star Interior Composition
Geodesic focusing, energy conditions and singularities
Standard work on geodesic focusing assumes that a pointwise inequality, known as an energy condition, holds. This pointwise condition has been weakened by Tipler (1978) to the requirement that a
