  • One of the macroscopically measurable effects of gravity is the tidal deformability of astrophysical objects, which can be quantified by their tidal Love numbers. For planets and stars, these numbers measure the resistance of their material against the tidal forces, and the resulting contribution to their gravitational multipole moments. According to general relativity, deformed black holes, instead, show no addition to their gravitational multipole moments, and all of their Love numbers are… CONTINUE READING
