Neutron Stars with Baryon Number Violation, Probing Dark Sectors

The neutron lifetime anomaly has been used to motivate the introduction of new physics with hidden-sector particles coupled to baryon number, and on which neutron stars provide powerful constraints.

Polytropic fits of modern and unified equations of state

(Dated: Background: Equations of state for a cold neutron star’s interior are presented in three-column tables that relate the baryonic density, the energy density, and the pressure. A few analytical

Tests of General Relativity with Gravitational-Wave Observations using a Flexible--Theory-Independent Method

We perform tests of General Relativity (GR) with gravitational waves (GWs) from the inspiral stage of compact binaries using a theory-independent framework, which adds generic phase corrections to

Constraining the anomalous coupling of gravitational waves with double pulsar

We revisit the decay of the orbital period in binary systems that occurs due to the emission of gravitational waves in the context of modified gravity models where the coupling G gw between matter and

Prospects for constraining the Yukawa gravity with pulsars around Sagittarius A*

The discovery of radio pulsars (PSRs) around the supermassive black hole (SMBH) in our Galactic Center (GC), Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*), will have significant implications for tests of gravity. In this

Properties of Tiny Objects and Vast Things

Physics has yet to complete a catalog of properties of objects, complete a list of elementary particles, describe dark matter, and explain dark energy phenomena. This paper shows modeling that

New black hole solutions with a dynamical traceless nonmetricity tensor in Metric-Affine Gravity

In the framework of Metric-Affine Gravity, the existing correspondence between the Einstein tensor and the energy-momentum tensor of matter provided by General Relativity is extended towards a

MICROSCOPE Mission: Final Results of the Test of the Equivalence Principle.

The MICROSCOPE mission was designed to test the weak equivalence principle (WEP), stating the equality between the inertial and the gravitational masses, with a precision of 10^{-15} in terms of the

Primeiro passo em direção à modificação da gravidade: Teorias Escalar-Tensoriais e f(R)

A relatividade geral, apesar de seus sucessos, é hoje entendida como uma teoria aberta a possibilidades de modificação. Neste artigo buscamos introduzir de maneira didática a base de uma classe de

Uni ed Modeling that Explains Dark Matter Data, Dark Energy E ects, and Galaxy Formation Stages

Physics lacks a con rmed description of dark matter, has yet to develop an adequate understanding of dark energy, and includes unveri ed conjectures regarding new elementary particles. This essay



Radio Astronomical Polarimetry and Point-Source Calibration

A mathematical framework is presented for use in the experimental determination of the polarimetric response of observatory instrumentation. Elementary principles of linear algebra are applied to

A detailed account of the parametrized post-Keplerian'' (PPK) formalism, a general phenomenological framework designed to extract the maximum possible information from pulsar timing and pulse-structure data, and how it can be combined with the predictions of a rather generic class of tensor biscalar theories to bring together tests based on observations of several different pulsars.

Tensor-scalar gravity and binary-pulsar experiments.

An exploratory investigation of the confrontation between tensor-scalar theories and binary-pulsar experiments shows that nonperturbative scalar field effects are already very tightly constrained by published data on three binary-Pulsar systems.

We report a series of observations of the interstellar scintillation (ISS) of the double pulsar J0737−3039 over the course of 18 months. As in earlier work, the basic phenomenon is the variation in

Implications of a VLBI Distance to the Double Pulsar J0737-3039A/B

Very long baseline interferometry observations are presented which reveal that the distance to PSR J0737-3039A/B is more than double previous estimates, and confirm its low transverse velocity (∼9 kilometers per second).

Multimessenger constraints on the neutron-star equation of state and the Hubble constant

A framework to combine multiple constraints on the masses and radii of neutron stars, including data from gravitational waves, electromagnetic observations, and theoretical nuclear physics calculations is developed, which constrain the neutron-star equation of state and measures the Hubble constant.

Relativistic gravitation theory for the modified newtonian dynamics paradigm

The modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) paradigm of Milgrom can boast of a number of successful predictions regarding galactic dynamics; these are made without the assumption that dark matter plays a
