Testing Einstein's Equivalence Principle with supercluster Laniakea's gravitational field
Abstract Comparing the parameterized post-Newtonian parameter γ values for different types of particles, or the same type of particles with different energies is an important method to test theExpand
Limits on the Neutrino Velocity, Lorentz Invariance, and the Weak Equivalence Principle with TeV Neutrinos from Gamma-Ray Bursts
Five TeV neutrino events weakly correlated with five gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) were detected recently by IceCube. This work is an attempt to show that if the GRB identifications are verified, theExpand
Testing fundamental physics with astrophysical transients
Explosive astrophysical transients at cosmological distances can be used to place precision tests of the basic assumptions of relativity theory, such as Lorentz invariance, the photon zero-massExpand
Potential Sensitivity of Gamma-Ray Burster Observations to Wave Dispersion in Vacuo
The recent confirmation that at least some gamma-ray bursters (GRBs) are indeed at cosmological distances raises the possibility that observations of these could provide interesting constraints onExpand
Multimessenger tests of Einstein's weak equivalence principle and Lorentz invariance with a high-energy neutrino from a flaring blazar
The detection of the high-energy ($\sim290$ TeV) neutrino coincident with the flaring blazar TXS 0506+056, the first and only $3\sigma$ neutrino-source association to date, provides new,Expand
Constraints on differential Shapiro delay between neutrinos and photons from IceCube-170922A
On 22nd September 2017, the IceCube Collaboration detected a neutrino with energy of about 290 TeV from the direction of the gamma-ray blazar TXS 0506+056, located at a distance of about 1.75 Gpc.Expand
Testing Einstein's Equivalence Principle with Short Gamma-ray Bursts
Einstein's equivalence principle (EEP) can be tested by the time delay between photons with different energies passing through a gravitational field. As one of the most energetic explosions in theExpand
Constraints on frequency-dependent violations of Shapiro delay from GW150914
Abstract On 14th September 2015, a transient gravitational wave (GW150914) was detected by the two LIGO detectors at Hanford and Livingston from the coalescence of a binary black hole system locatedExpand
Limits on the Weak Equivalence Principle and Photon Mass with FRB 121102 Subpulses
Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are short duration ($\sim$millisecond) radio transients with cosmological origin. The simple sharp features of the FRB signal have been utilized to probe two fundamental lawsExpand
Lorentz-violation-induced arrival delays of cosmological particles
We point out that previous studies of possible Lorentz-violating effects in astronomical time-of-flight data did not take into account the entire implications of the universe's cosmologicalExpand
