Colin Cunliff of Quantum Gravity Group UC DavisDr. Colin Cunliff of the Quantum Gravity Group at University of California, Davis to speak on campus about Massive Gravity.

Recent years have seen a surge of interest in theories of massive gravity. These models extend Einstein’s theory of General Relativity by giving mass to the graviton, the particle which carries the gravitational force, and modify the gravitational field on large scales. Additionally, these models allow new types of black holes not present in ordinary Einstein gravity. In this talk, Dr. Cunliff will explore some properties of these models, focusing on the asymptotic behavior of the gravitational field.
