DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Jakub Mielczarek (Jagiellonian University)\nThe so-c
alled state of silence has been obtained as a possible \nconsequence of de
formed space-time structure in the models \nof loop quantum gravity. The
purpose of the talk is to provide \nup to date status of the state of sile
nce in cosmology. Our attention \nwill be focused on discussing possibilit
y of solving various \ncosmological problems employing the state of silenc
e. In particular\, \nthe initial value problem including the issue of init
ial homogeneity \nwill be discussed. Generation of cosmological perturbati
ons \nand the possibile non-Gaussian contributions will be analyzed.\nFurt
hermore\, our current fundamental understanding of the state \nof silence

metric smooth horizon admits an $sl(2\, \\mathbb{R})$ symmetry algebra. Ho
wever it is unclear how string corrections modify the statement. In this t
alk I will present the analysis of supersymmetric near-horizon geometries
in heterotic supergravity up to two loop order in sigma model perturbation
theory\, and show the conditions for the horizon to admit an $sl(2\, \\ma

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Roger Penrose (University of Oxford)\nIn the cosmolo
gical scheme of conformal cyclic cosmology (CCC)\, the equations governing
the crossover form each aeon to the next demand the creation of a dominan
t new scalar material\, postulated to be dark matter. In order that this m
aterial does not build up from aeon to aeon\, it is taken to decay away co
mpletely over the history of each aeon. The dark matter particles (erebons
) may be expected to behave almost as classical particles\, though with bo
sonic properties\, being probably of about a Planck mass\, and interacting
only gravitationally. Their decay would be to gravitational signals\, and
responsible for the (~scale invariant) temperature fluctuations in the CM
B of the succeeding aeon. In our own aeon\, erebon decay might show up in
signals discernable by gravitational wave detectors.\n\nhttps://indico.cer

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Andrzej Rostworowski ()\nI will present a systematic
and robust approach to nonlinear gravitational perturbations of vacuum sp
acetimes. In particular\, I will show that the system of perturbative Eins
tein equations reduces at each perturbation order to two (for each gravita
tional mode in $3+1$ dimensions on which our study is focused) scalar wave
equations\, and then we show how the metric perturbations can be explicit
ly obtained\, once the solutions to these scalar wave equations are known.
These results show that the concept of polarization of a gravitational wa
ve does make sense also beyond the linear approximation and provides a bas
is for a theory of nonlinear gravitational waves. The talk is based on a r

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Przemysław Małkiewicz (National Centre for Nuclear

cal formalism of general relativity by means of the Hamiltonian constraint
. The lack of time does not imply the lack of evolution but rather brings
to the fore the role of internal clocks which are some largely arbitrary
internal degrees of freedom with respect to which the evolution of timele
ss systems can be described. I will take this idea seriously and try to un
derstand that what it may imply for quantum mechanics when the fixed exte

relativity with a positive cosmological constant $\\Lambda $ in terms of
''corrected curvature'' $\\hat{F}$. We will see that in terms of $\\hat{F}
$ this action takes the form typical for a gauge field. Finally\, we give

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Bartosz Kuśmierz (Wrocław university of Science an
d Technology)\nWe propose and discuss a $\\psi$-diagram a novel kind of a
plot representing light-like geodesics. We consider spherically symmetric\
, static spacetimes. The general construction is illustrated with diagrams
for light rays in the proximity of the Schwarzschild\, Reissner–Nordstr
om (charged) and Kerr (rotating) types of black holes.\n\n\nThe idea is de
veloped from the phase portraits illustrating the null geodesics in Schwar
zschild spacetime [1]. But our proposal puts greater emphasis on the role
of observer and his/her perception of light. We consider various types of
observers including local static and freely falling. The construction for
freely falling one is of particular interest\, since it allows analysis of
an interior of the black holes.\n\n\nThe diagrams can improve our underst
anding of the peculiarities of communication outside and inside horizon of
black holes [2] and issues like self-focusing or dimensional reduction [3
]. What is more significant light rays of infinite angular momentum observ
ed inside horizon seems to be pictured clearly in this picture. The diagra
ms can also serve as a suitable illustration of a well-known problem of a
Doppler shift near the event horizon [4\,5\,6] and can be useful in determ
ination of a size of a black hole (problem of black hole shadow) [7].\n\n[

presence of long-range interactions (1/r^a\, a>1) within the context of Bo
ltzmann-Gibbs statistical mechanics is unsuccessful. The configurational i
ntegral contained in the partition function diverges\, preventing us from
a proper probabilistic analysis of the system. This motivates us to descri
be our system by a non-additive and non-extensive entropy\, i.e. the Tsall
is entropy. Non-extensive statistical mechanics emerge as a powerful way t
o describe these systems. We present an analysis of a self-gravitating non

stical mechanics\, proposing an alternative more consistent way to study a
stronomical self-gravitational systems\, and discuss the results and possi

s with vanishing divergence (TT tensors) play a big role in the initial va

sor. This tensor admits a big group of gauge transformations which can be
used to simplify it. If T is traceless then we can choose R to be traceles

\nThanks to the spectacular observational advances since the 1990s\, a 'st
andard model' of the early universe has now emerged. However\, since it is
based on quantum field theory in curved space-times\, it is not applicabl
e in the Planck regime. Using techniques from loop quantum gravity\, the t
heory can be extended over the 12 orders of magnitude in density and curva
ture from the onset of inflation all the way back to the Planck regime\, p
roviding us with a candidate completion of the standard model. Contrary to
a wide-spread belief\, the resulting pre-inflationary dynamics can have o
bservational consequences. Thus\, two way bridge has now opened between ob
servations and fundamental theory. The talk will provide a broad overview
of these results.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/588228/contributions/270

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Dong-han Yeom ()\nIn this presentation\, we investig
ate the information flow of two-dimensional moving mirrors. Here we point
out that various mirror trajectories can help to mimic different candidate
resolutions to the information loss paradox following the semi-classical
quantum field theory: (i) a suddenly stopping mirror corresponds to the as
sertion that all information is attached to the last burst\, (ii) a slowly
stopping mirror corresponds to the assertion that thermal Hawking radiati
on carries information\, and (iii) a long propagating mirror corresponds t
o the remnant scenario. Based on such analogy\, we find that the last burs
t of a black hole cannot contain enough information\, while slowly emittin
g radiation can restore unitarity. For all cases\, there is an apparent in
consistency between the picture based on quantum entanglements and that ba
sed on the semi-classical quantum field theory. Based on the quantum entan
glement theory\, a stopping mirror will generate a firewall-like violent e
mission which is in conflict with notions based on the semi-classical quan
tum field theory.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/588228/contributions/264

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Alcides Garat (Former Professor at Universidad de la
Republica\, Montevideo\, Uruguay.)\nA new technique is presented in order
to build tetrads in four-dimensional Lorentzian spacetimes. These tetrads
have special useful properties in general relativity\, astrophysics and a
lso particle physics. A new fundamental result is proved in group theory.
The group SO(2) (spatial rotations) is isomorphic to the group SO(1\; 1) (
boosts) plus two kinds of discrete transformations. One of them is not Lor
entzian. That is\, a compact group is isomorphic to a non-compact group pl
us two different kinds of discrete transformations (1\;2). The electromagn
etic local gauge group is proved to be isomorphic to the local group of tr
ansformations of these particular kind of tetrads. Therefore\, establishin
g a concrete link between internal and spacetime local groups of transform
ations. These new tetrads also diagonalize the electromagnetic stress-ener
gy tensor for non-null electromagnetic fields\, any stress-energy tensor\,
in a general\, covariant and local way. These new tetrads also introduce
maximum simplification in the Einstein-Maxwell differential equations\, an
d introduce maximum\nsimplification in the expression of the electromagnet
ic field itself\, in any curved four-dimensional Lorentzian spacetime\, al
lowing for the identification of its degrees of freedom in two local scala
rs. These tetrads introduce simplification in spacetime evolution algorith
ms\, specially in astrophysical situations related\, for example\, to neut
ron stars (3). This new tetrad can be applied and introduce simplification
in the analysis of astrophysical relativistic problems where vorticity is
present through the Carter-Lichnerowicz equation (4).\n\nREFERENCES\n(1)

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Adam Chudecki (Lodz University of Technology)\nRecen
tly\, the existence of gravitational waves has been confirmed in experimen
ts. It is worth then to analyze once again one of the most intriguing open
problems of the general theory of relativity: the problem of vacuum type
N with twist. It is well known that according to the "peeling off theorem
" the graviational radiation far away from a bounded source is of the type
N. All vacuum type N metrics can be divided into four classes. Three clas
ses are explicitly known. They are characterized by the vanishing of the t
wist (parameter which describes the properties of the congruences of the n
ull geodesics). All of them have singularities and this is the reason why
they cannot be treated as a model of the gravitational radiation. Among th
e metrics with nonzero twist only one solution is known explicitly (Hauser
\, 1974). This solution has singularities as well. Plenty different approa
ches to the twisting vacuum type N problem have been presented for last 40
years. Existence of the Killing vectors (KV) or homothetic Killing vector
s (HKV) simplify the problem a little. Nevertheless\, even two KV or one K
V and one HKV enable us to reduce the field equations to the strongly nonl
inear and complicated ODE of the third order. A few forms of such equation
s have been proposed by different authors. For some values of the homothet
ic parameter these equations become easier and shorter\, but we are still
far from the finding the explicit solutions other than the Houser's one. I
n what follows we present the approach to the twisting vacuum type N probl
em by studying hyperheavenly spaces equipped with two KV or one KV and one
HKV. The field equations are reduced to the nonlinear ODE of the fifth or
der. Our considerations remain valid in all 4-dimensional real spaces of a
rbitrary signature\, as well as in the complex spaces. Finally\, some new
family of the metrics which admit two Killing vectors is presented. It see
ms\, that this family does not admit any Lorentzian real slice.\n\nhttps:/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Tomasz Trześniewski (University of Wrocław)\nThe c
oncept of a field theory with nonlinear phase space has recently been intr
oduced\, inspired by nontrivial geometry of the particles' phase spaces ap
pearing in several approaches to quantum gravity. In particular\, it has b
een applied in the context of cosmological inflation\, by considering a sc
alar field theory with spherical phase space\, defined on the standard FRW
background (i.e. general relativity itself is not modified). The scalar f
ield Hamiltonian is assumed to correspond to the continuous XXZ Heisenberg
model of a system of spins. For the homogenous cosmology the nonlinearity
of the field phase space turns out to be relevant at late cosmological ti
mes\, when it may lead to a recollapse of universe\, while at early times
there is a possibility of a bounce\, avoiding the initial singularity. Qua
ntum perturbations of the field have been studied in the linear approximat
ion but taking into account the Lorentz symmetry breaking term in the fiel
d Hamiltonian. This leads to a correction to the ordinary amplitude of per
turbations and a generalization of the Bunch-Davies vacuum state\, while t
he inflationary spectral index remains unchanged in the leading order. The
discussed framework is potentially able to bring cosmology and condensed
matter physics closer together.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/588228/con

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Andrzej Krasiński (N. Copernicus Astronomical Cente
r\, Polish Academy of Sciences)\nAs known since 1980\, some light rays emi
tted from the Big Bang (BB) in a\nLemaitre - Tolman (L-T) model reach all
observers with an infinite blueshift.\nThis happens when at the emission p
oint the BB function t_B(r) has nonzero\nderivative and the ray propagates
radially. Some authors portrayed the existence\nof blueshifts as a disast
er disqualifying the L-T models. This author recently\nproposed that blues
hifted rays are actually observed as gamma-ray bursts (GRBs).\nTwo papers
were published. In the first one\, it was shown that L-T based models\nof
GRB sources successfully account for the energies of the GRBs\, the large\
ndistances to them\, their multitude\, and for the existence of the afterg
lows.\nHowever\, these models did not account for the durations of the GRB
s and of the\nafterglows and for their (hypothetical) collimation into nar
row jets. In the\nsecond paper\, the existence and properties of blueshift
s were investigated in\nexemplary Szekeres models. In them\, infinite blue
shifts may arise only along two\nopposite directions\, so the collimation
is accounted for. The third paper\, now\nsubmitted for publication\, shows
how realistic Szekeres-based models of GRBs\nimprove upon the L-T based m
odels. Currently\, I work on accounting for the\nduration of the GRBs and
their afterglows\, but the work is not yet completed.\n\nhttps://indico.ce

y depends on the Weyl tensor. Without any resort to observations we consi
der the problem from purely field–theoretical viewpoint. We apply the te
net of field theory that each classical field should correspond to a quant
um particle with definite mass and spin and deterministic dynamics. These
features may be established only for free fields (decoupled from spacetime
curvature) and this is achieved by putting all coupling constants in the
gravitational Lagrangian equal to zero. This method shows the Lagrangian s
hould be free of the Weyl tensor since it generates a field in a gravitati
onal multiplet which is dynamically undetermined and in consequence has no
definite mass and spin.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/588228/contributi

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Dániel Németh (Eötvös Loránd Science University
)\nCausal Dynamical Triangulations (CDT) is a lattice field theory of quan
tum gravity based on Regge calculus which can be studied using Monte Carlo
techniques. The key feature of CDT is an introduction of a global proper
time foliation into spatial hypersurfaces and a requirement that spatial t
opology is fixed. Measurements showed that CDT parametrized by bare coupli
ng constants of the Regge action has a complicated phase structure. Under
spherical topology four phases appeared\, and they most likely have a comm
on point\, a so called "quadrupole" point. The phase transitions were also
measured and it was shown that there exists phase transitions of second
or higher order\, which opens a possibility of investigating the UV limit.
We recently measured the phase structure in toroidal topology that appea
red to be quite similar to the one observed in spherical case. This may in
dicate that the phase structure is independent from the topology of the un
iverse.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/588228/contributions/2641224/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Roman Konoplya ()\nHigher derivative extensions of E
instein gravity are important within the string theory approach to gravity
and as alternative and effective theories of gravity.\nWe consider two nu
merical black-hole solution: by P. Kanti\, et. al. in the Einstein-dilaton
-Gauss-Bonnet theory [Phys.Rev. D54 (1996) 5049-5058] and \nthe one by H.
L\\"u\, A. Perkins\, C. Pope\, K. Stelle [Phys.Rev.Lett. 114 (2015)\, 1716
01] in the Einstein gravity with added higher derivative terms. Using the
general and quickly convergent parametrization in terms of the continued f
ractions\, we represent these numerical solution in the analytical forms w
hich are accurate not only near the event horizon or far from black hole\,
but in the whole space. Thereby\, the obtained analytical forms of the me
trics allow one to study easily all the further properties of the black ho
les\, such as thermodynamics\, Hawking radiation\, particle motion\, accre
tion\, perturbations\, stability\, quasinormal spectrum\, etc. Thus\, the
found analytical approximate representations can serve in the same way as
exact solutions.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/588228/contributions/2641

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Krzysztof Bolejko (The University of Sydney)\n*Gravi
tational entropy and the cosmological “no-hair” conjecture*\n\nGravita
tional entropy [1] and the “no-hair” conjectures [2\, 3] are seemingly
contradictory: the growth of the first one is associated with the growth
of inhomogeneity [4\, 5\, 6]\, while the second one argues that the dark e
nergy dominated Universe will asymptotically approach a homogeneous and is
otropic de Sitter state[7\, 8]. \nIn my talk I will present the analysis o
f both of these conjectures within the silent universes [9\, 10]. Irrotati
onal silent universes belong to a class of systems where each worldline ev
olves independently of other worldlines - there is no communication betwee
n the worldlines\, i.e. no pressure gradients\, no energy flux\, no gravit
ational radiation. In my talk I will discuss properties and evolution of t
he irrotational silent universe. I will focus on the gravitational entropy
and future asymptotic state of the silent universe dominated by dark ener
gy [11]. Finally\, I will comment on the gravitational entropy of gravitat
ional waves.\n\n\nReferences\n\n[1] T. Clifton\, G. F. R. Ellis\, and R. T

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Wojciech Kulczycki ()\nWe analyze propagation equati
ons for the polar modes of gravitational waves in cosmological space-times
. We prove that polar gravitational waves must perturb the density and non
-azimuthal components of the velocity of material medium of the Friedman-L
emaitre-Robertson-Walker space-times. Axial gravitational waves can in
uence only the azimuthal velocity. The whole gravitational dynamics reduce
s to the single "master equation" that has the same form as for axial mode
s. That allows us to conclude that the status of the Huygens principle is
the same for both axial and polar modes of gravitational waves. In particu
lar\, this principle is valid exactly in radiation spacetimes with the van
ishing cosmological constant\, and it is broken otherwise.\n\nhttps://indi

oordinates adapted to metric tensor are common tool in many areas of Gener

Dirac observables invariant with respect (ideally) to all or (practically)
to most of diffeomorphisms. Recently\, in that context the coordinates d
efined by geodesics emanating from observer were studied. In the case of t
he space like geodesics the symmetry group is a suitably deformed Poincare
group acting on the space of the metric tensor. In the case of the null g
eodesics the result is surprising for additional reason: the coordinates r
educe the diffeomorphism freedom much more than one could expect. Those pu

gles with their quantum counterparts. The expectation is that our work may
contribute towards understanding some quantum aspects of the BKL scenario
