DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Remigiusz Durka (Univesrity of Wrocław)\nThe Taub-N
UT metric represents quite intriguing space-time configuration supposedly
possessing gravitational analog of the magnetic monopole. We will deal wit
h the new approach to this subject. Starting from realizing that the sourc
e of many inconsistencies lies in neglecting the effects of the wire singu
larities present in that solution\, we are able to explain the existence o
f the NUT parameter by the means of quite peculiar rotation. Among many th
ings\, this leads to the consistent description of the black hole thermody
namics for the Lorentzian Taub-NUT space-time with the essential contribut
ion to the angular momentum and the total entropy.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Syed Naqvi (Astronomical Observatory\,Jagiellonian U
niversity)\nGravitational waves offer a unique window to study the strong-
field regime of general relativity. In 1916-18\, Einstein showed their exi
stence in linearized approximation which was followed by a period of confu
sion. Finally cemented theoretically by Bondi\, Sachs\, Trautman gravitati
onal waves are an important tool to discover new information about fundame
ntal gravity effects.\n\nOne of the persistent gravitational wave effect c
alled memory effect forms an interesting proposition theoretically and ast
rophysically. It is essentially a permanent displacement between particles
after GW passes. It's linear and non-linear form will be important for th
e future GW detections from compact binary sources. This effect gives info
rmation about the asymptotic nature of spacetime and is relevant for a lar
ge number of detections by LIGO/VIRGO. The linear part discovered by Zel'd
ovich & Polnarev and the nonlinear part discovered by Christodoulou help u
s understand the nature of spacetime and explore further the nonlinear par
t of general relativity.\n\nWe plan to study the linear memory effect for
different wave profiles under the exact plane wave solution of Einstein's
vacuum equations and then look for other solutions. The displacement and v
elocity memory effects are studied by analyzing the geodesic equation for
test masses under exact plane wave spacetime. The aim is to look for diffe
rent gravitational spacetimes and study the memory effect within them.\n\n

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Krzysztof Bolejko (University of Tasmania)\nThe Eins
tein's theory of gravity\, General Relativity was build on the theory of S
pecial Relativity. This generalisation required utilising the full general
ity of the Riemannian geometry. Many of the present-day cosmological tests
of GR are still based on the assumption of the Riemannian geometry. Howev
er\, in order to fully study and test various extensions of GR one is also
required to move beyond the Riemannian geometry. In my talk I will focuse
s on light propagation and discuss what signatures in cosmological observa
tional data could point to non-Riemannian effects. This talk will not be a
comprehensive review of the issue - it will only focus on the distance an
d redshift relations. I will discuss observational constraints and talk ho
w future surveys could provide a better insight into the underlying geomet

th\, 2015 the LIGO-Virgo collaboration made the first direct detection of
gravitational waves\, nearly one hundred years after Einstein first predic

have been able to study new black holes and analyse the collision of two n
eutron stars. Now the Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo observatories are o
n their third science run. Many more gravitational-wave candidates have be
en announced since its start in April 2019.\nIn this talk\, I will review
the detections and their physical and astrophysical implications as of the

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Konrad Marosek ()\nWe consider a specific type of th
e bimetric theory of gravitation with the two different metrics introduced
in the cosmological frame. Both metrics respect all the symmetries of the
standard FLRW solution and contain conformally related spatial parts. One
of the metric is assumed to describe the causal structure for the matter.
Another metric defines the causal structure for the gravitational interac
tions. A crucial point is that the spatial part of the metric describing g
ravity is given by the spatial part of the matter metric conformally resca
led by a time-dependent factor α which\, as it turns out\, can be linked
to the effective gravitational constant and the effective speed of light.
In the context of such a bimetric framework we examine the strength of som
e singular cosmological scenarios in the sense of the criteria introduced
by Tipler and Królak. In particular\, we show that for the nonsingular sc
ale factor associated with the matter metric\, both the vanishing or blowi
ng up of the factor α for some particular moment of the cosmic expansion
may lead to a strong singularity with infinite value of the energy density
and infinite value of the pressure.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/77324

athbb{C}P^2}$. Both of the manifolds are perfectly smooth however the 3-di
emnsional slices they generate contain topological changes. Then the value
of cosmological constant is expressed via Chern-Simons\, volume\, and Eul

edicts realistically the neutrino masses and inflation parameters\, includ
ing Starobinsky potential and the number of e-folds.\n\nReferences:\n\n[1]

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Taejin Lee (Department of Physics\, Kangwon National
University)\nCanonical quantization of massive symmetric rank-two tensor
in string theory has been studied. \nThe Lagrangian describing symmetric r
ank-two tensor\, containing two Stueckelberg fields\,\nwas obtained by Sie
gel and Zwiebach from string field theory. Performing canonical analysis\,
\nwe found that the Lagrangian possesses first class constraints only\, wh
ich generate a local gauge transformation. By an explicit calculation\, we
show that the constraints form a closed algebra \nonly in the critical di
mension of string\, $d=26$. It reminds us that the origin of local symmetr
y \nis nilpotency of BRST operator\, which is valid only in the critical d
imension. \nIn a particular gauge\, imposed on the Stueckelberg fields\,
the gauge invariant \nLagrangian of Siegel and Zwiebach reduces to the Fie
rz-Pauli Lagrangian proposed for \na massive spin-two particle. Thus\, the
Fierz-Pauli Lagrangian is a gauged fixed version \nof the gauge invariant
Lagrangian for massive symmetric rank-two tensor. In comparison to \nthe
Fierz-Pauli Lagrangian\, which contains second class constraints\, it is m
uch simpler to \nquantize the gauge invariant Lagrangian. We also construc
ted a covariant \npropogator which may be useful to develop a perturbation
theory for massive spin-two particle.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/773

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Bartłomiej Kiczek ()\nThe gauge/gravity duality has
constituted as a powerful tool for analysis of strongly coupled condensed
matter systems on a weakly coupled gravitational side in AdS spacetime.\
nIt has been shown that the holographic theory reproduces several properti
es of superconducting/superfluid state known from conventional quantum mec
hanical considerations and experiments.\nThis has been extended by possibi
lities of modeling Josephson junctions in a holographic approach in variou
s scenarios -- different pairing types or in modified gravity\, which open
ed a new branch of research that can be named as Applied AdS/CFT.\nTreatin
g these efforts as an inspiration we propose bringing the superconducting
devices into the field of the detection of specific kind of dark matter (D
M)\, namely the dark photon. \nIn our model we construct a holographic SQU
ID (superconducting quantum interference device) whose one of Josephson ju
nctions is affected by the dark sector. This interaction is realized by ki
netic mixing term resulting a photon-dark photon coupling.\nWe have shown
that mixing has an impact on properties of Josephson junction such as curr
ent-phase relation.\nOur results show that proposed SQUID remains trivial
with zero signal when the DM is not affecting it\, however if DM is presen
t in the system an interference occurs and possible signal is created.\nFu
rthermore we have investigated the dependence of the DM wavepacket length
on the critical current serving as a sensitivity of SQUID for particular m
ass of a dark particle.\nWe find that the analyzed properties of the devic
e may be used in the future experiments aimed at the detection of the dark
sector of our Universe.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/773241/contributi

h)\nAntisymmetric tensor fields arise naturally in superstring theory as w
ell as in some theories with broken Lorentz invariance. However\, models c
ontaining antisymmetric tensor fields often include anisotropic pressure.
I will present a general prescription for constructing ansäzte for antisy
mmetric tensor fields for use in cosmology. With a series of coordinate-de

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Igor Kanatchikov (U St. Andrews & KCIK)\nI outline t
he approach of precanonical quantization applied to a scalar field on curv
ed space-time. It leads to the description of quantum fields as sections o
f the Clifford bundle over the bundle of field variables over space-time.
The approach does not require 3+1 decomposition and the corresponding desc
ription of quantum fields is a hypercomplex rather than an infinite-dimens
ional generalization of quantum mechanics. I show how the classical field
equations are obtained from the precanonical analogue of the Schroedinger
equation as the equations for expectation values of the corresponding ope
rators. I discuss the relationship between the precanonical description an
d the standard formulation of quantum scalar fields on a curved space-time
background in the functional Schroedinger representation. The canonical d
escription is shown to emerge from the precanonical one in a singular limi
ting case in which\, after the 3+1 decomposition\, the canonical functiona
l derivative Schroedinger equation is derived from the partial derivative
precanonical Schroedinger equation and an explicit formula is obtained whi
ch relates the Schroedinger wave functional with the trace of the product
integral of precanonical wave functions taken along the surface of initial
data.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/773241/contributions/3537291/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Arthur Suvorov (University of Tübingen)\nThe Kerr m
etric\, which describes the geometry surrounding an isolated\, rotating co
mpact object\, is unique in general relativity (GR)\, in the sense that al
l asymptotically flat\, stationary\, vacuum black holes must be locally is
ometric to the Kerr spacetime. As such\, probing the Kerr metric is one of
the best means to test GR. However\, because modified theories of gravity
are often built such that they contain GR in some limit\, the Kerr metric
is also common to many of these theories. This means that\, in the absenc
e of `smoking-gun' type deviations\, a validation of the Kerr metric does
not necessarily favour GR amongst all possibilities. But\, since perturbat
ions are tied to the gravitational action\, disturbances behave differentl
y in different theories. We discuss\, using the Newman-Penrose formalism\,
how the field equation structure manifests in the properties of distorted
black holes in non-Einstein theories of gravity. This paves the way for f
uture precision tests of GR in the strong field regime using\, for example
\, gravitational waves.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/773241/contributio

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Salvatore Capozziello (INFN - National Institute for

ndependent approach to tackle the dark energy/modified gravity \nproblem
. In this talk\, the success and the shortcomings of the\n$\\Lambda$CDM mo
del\, based on General Relativity and standard model of\nparticles\, are d
iscussed in view of the most recent observational\nconstraints. The motiva
tions for considering extensions and modifications\nof General Relativity
are taken into account\, with particular attention to\n$f(R)$ and $f(T)$
theories of gravity where dynamics is represented by\ncurvature or torsion
field respectively. The features of $f(R)$ models\nare explored in metr
ic and Palatini formalisms. \nCosmological dynamics of $f(R)$ models is i
nvestigated through the\ncorresponding viability criteria. Afterwards\, t
he equivalent formulation\nof General Relativity (Teleparallel Equivalent
General Relativity) in\nterms of torsion and its extension to $f(T)$ gravi
ty is considered.\nFinally\, the cosmographic method is adopted to break t
he degeneracy among\ndark energy models. A novel approach\, built upon rat
ional Pad\\'e and\nChebyshev polynomials\, is proposed to overcome limit
s of standard\ncosmography based on Taylor expansion. The approach prov
ides accurate\nmodel-independent approximations of the Hubble flow. Nume
rical analyses\nare presented to bound coefficients of the cosmographic s
eries. These\ntechniques are thus applied to reconstruct $f(R)$ and $f(T)$
functions \nand to frame the late-time expansion history of the universe
with no\n\\emph{a priori} assumptions on its equation of state. A comparis
on \nbetween the $\\Lambda$CDM cosmological model with $f(R)$ and $f(T)$ m
odels\nis reported.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/773241/contributions/

teractions among black holes and branes could have been relevant in the ea

have formed out of matter density perturbations\, while phase transitions
in the cooling Universe may have resulted in an occurrence of extended top
ological defects. There can exist two types of static configurations withi
n the brane - black hole system. The first one corresponds to the brane wh
ich intersects the event horizon\, the second one represents unlinked obje
cts. In the case of an extremal black hole\, the former does not form. Our
research was devoted to examining the dynamical behavior of the brane - d
ilaton black hole system. The evolution of a brane of a nonzero initial ve
locity was traced with respect to the position of a black hole. The dynami
cs was described in multiple dimensions and for various values of paramete

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Tomasz Trzesniewski (Jagiellonian University)\nIt is
widely argued\, especially in the phenomenological approach to quantum gr
avity\, that at the Planckian scales the geometry of spacetime may become
noncommutative. A closely related effect is the generalization of classica
l spacetime symmetries into quantum-deformed algebras and groups\, which a
re expected to have the structure of Hopf algebras and be characterized by
the (classical) $r$-matrices - solutions of the Yang-Baxter equations. Th
e best known example is the $\\kappa$-Poincare algebra. Such quantum algeb
ras and groups actually arise in the convincing way in 2+1 dimensions\, wh
ere gravity can be described as a Chern-Simons theory with the gauge group
given by the isometry group of spacetime\, the latter depending on the me
tric signature and cosmological constant. For non-vanishing cosmological c
onstant the relevant algebras are $\\mathfrak{o}(4)$\, $\\mathfrak{o}(3\,1
)$ and $\\mathfrak{o}(2\,2)$. They can also be treated as real forms of th
e complex algebra $\\mathfrak{o}(4\;\\mathbb{C})$\, which has recently bee
n applied to classify all of their possible quantum deformations. We have
further expanded this line of inquiry by studying the quantum Inonu-Wigner
contractions\, i.e. calculating the limit of vanishing cosmological const
ant of deformations of the $\\mathfrak{o}(4)$\, $\\mathfrak{o}(3\,1)$ and
$\\mathfrak{o}(2\,2)$ algebras\, which leads to either deformed 3d inhomog
eneous Euclidean algebras or deformed 3d Poincare algebras. The obtained a
lgebras form a subclass in the known classification of quantum 3d inhomoge
neous symmetry algebras and can be compared with e.g. the recent results c
oncerning deformed symmetry algebras that are associated with the Drinfel'
d double structures (the latter are claimed to be a necessary ingredient i
n the quantization of 2+1d gravity).\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/77324

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Ishika Palit (Center for theoretical Physics \, PAS)
\nGamma ray bursts are highly energetic and brightest explosions that have
been observed in EM spectrum. These can last from few seconds to few hour
s. The progenitors of long GRBs are believed to be massive stars exploding
due to the collapse of their cores. Matter from the star around the core
falls down towards the center forming a gaseous envelope and (for rapidly
rotating stars) swirls into a highly density accretion disk. \nIn my talk\
, I will present our results showing how much mass and spin a newly formed
black hole should possess during collapsar to launch long GRB. In our mo
del\, We start with a newly formed black hole whose mass and spin are goin
g to evolve depending on the rotation of the collapsing cloud. We set a cr
itical angular momentum of the cloud at certain circular radii and we furt
her study the growth of black hole in sub critical\, critical and super cr
itical regime. In addition to metric change effects on the evolution\, mi
ni disk formation has also been investigated and have been accounted for v
ariability in accretion rate. Our results also testify that the massive BH
detected by LIGO till date was never able to launch a powerful GRB becaus
e as per our results such massive BH should not have required high spin to
support such event.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/773241/contributions/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Agnieszka Janiuk (Center for Theoretical Physics PAS
)\nI will present the recent development of numerical tools for GR MHD mod
eling of the black hole accretion flows.\nThe black hole appears as the re
sult of a binary neutron star merger\, and is surrounded by a remnant debr
is torus.\nThe code named HARM_COOL is our implementation of the existing
algorithm\nfor a conservative GR MHD scheme.\nThe newly added modules cove
r the neutino cooling and the nuclear equation of state for dense matter\,
as relevant for the physics\n of accretion flows in a gamma-ray burst (GR
B) central engine environment. We also implement\n further post-processing
with a nuclear reaction network\, and reproduce the nucleosynthesis of he
avy\, neutron-rich isotopes.\nThese elements are synthesized within the ma
gnetically driven outflow from the remnant torus.\nThese fast wind outflow
s (v/c∼0.11−0.23) appear with a broad range of electron fraction Ye∼
0.1−0.4. \nThe total mass loss from the post-merger disk via unbound out
flows is between 2\\% and 17\\% of the initial disk mass. \nThe results ar
e in agreement with the scenarios that explain the blue and red kilonova c
omponents\, detected in optical lightcurves \nafter the gravitational wave
event GW 170817.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/773241/contributions/353

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Dániel Németh (Jagiellonian University)\nCausal Dy
namical Triangulations is a nonperturbative approach to quantum gravity ba
sed on Regge calculus\, which uses lattice regularization in the form of a
triangulation. To describe the theory for dimension higher than 2 only nu
merical simulations are available. It is well known through the numerical
simulations\, that for certain values of bare coupling constants the de-Si
tter Universe emerges as a dynamically created background solution around
which quantum fluctuations are observed\, which agrees with the solutions
of the Minisuperspace model. The effects of including scalar-/vector- fiel
ds or particles in the theory is less understood. In our new research we a
re analyzing the effect of introducing closed timelike loops for point par
ticles of various masses and lattice volumes\, for spherical and toroidal
topologies. The massline is minimally coupled to the geometry through the
action dependent on its mass and length $S_m = m*L$. The next step will b
e to measure the possible behavior of two or more such masslines to see th
eir interaction may produce any noticable gravitational effect. These mass
line measurements and some other new approaches help us understanding the
underlying structure of the generated triangulations.\n\nhttps://indico.ce

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Jakub Gizbert-Studnicki (Jagiellonian University)\nD
uring last POTOR's conference I discussed a quantum gravity model defined
by Causal Dynamical Triangulations (CDT) where spatial slices of equal pro
per time have fixed topology of a 3-torus. Identification of phase structu
re and order of the phase transitions constitute first steps in the quest
for a continuum limit of CDT where\, following the asymptotic safety conje
cture\, the resulting theory of quantum gravity becomes nonperturbatively
renormalizable. Initial study of the toroidal model\, presented last year\
, showed that one can identify the same phase structure as earlier observe
d for the spherical spatial topology\, including phase 'C'\, where quantum
fluctuations of spatial volume are well described by mini-superspace like
models. Now I will also discuss the recent study of the order of phase tr
ansitions in the toroidal case\, which is crucial in defining the continuu
m limit of CDT. If time permits I will comment on the possibility of reint
roducing spatial coordinates in the CDT model and on the impact of scalar
fields with non-trivial boundary conditions on the toroidal CDT results.\n

in all aspects of modern particle physics being theory\, phenomenology or
experiment. In this talk I will show how to extend the systematic top down
approach to construction of the EFT proposed by Hitoshi Murayama (LBL\, B
erkeley) and separately by John Ellis (King’s Coll. London) groups to th
e curved spacetime. To this end\, I will take advantage of the heat kernel
method so far extensively used in obtaining the one-loop effective action
in curved spacetime. After an introduction of the formalism I will discus
s its application to the problem of an influence of gravity on the stabili
ty of the Higgs effective potential. The talk is based on JHEP01(2019)034.

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Marian Wiatr (Universtity of Warsaw)\nOne of the mos
t popular points of view on Linearized Gravity is a Massless Spin-2 Partic
le Theory. This theory often serves as a starting point to formulate a qua
ntum version of gravity theory. The Spin-2 Field has a well defined local
energy density equal to $\\frac12(E^2 + B^2)$ in analogy to Maxwell Electr
odynamics. However\, obtaining this energy formula from Hamiltonian formul
ation is not obvious\, so to clarify it\, I will present a new formulation
of Classical Electrodynamics analogical to Fierz formulation of the Spin-
2 Field Theory. The relations and differences between Linearized Gravity a
nd the Spin-2 Field Theory will be discussed.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/ev

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Denis Dobkowski-Ryłko ()\nWe consider $3$-dimensi
onal isolated horizons (IHs) generated by null curves that form non-triv
ial $U(1)$ bundles and the Petrov type D equation. From the $4$-dimensiona
l spacetime point of view\, solutions to that equation define isolated hor
izons embeddable in vacuum spacetimes (with cosmological constant) as Kill
ing horizons to the second order such that the spacetime Weyl tensor at th
e horizon is of the Petrov type D. From the point of view of the $U(1)$-b
undle structure\, the equation couples a $U(1)$-connection\, a metric tens
or defined on the base manifold and the surface gravity in a very non-tri
vial way. We focus on the $U(1)$-bundles over $2$-dimensional manifolds d
iffeomorphic to $2$-sphere. We have derived all the axisymmetric solutions
to the Petrov type D equation. For a fixed value of the cosmological cons
tant they set a $3$-dimensional family as one could expect. A surprising r
esult is\, that generically our horizons are not embeddable in the known e
xact solutions to Einstein's equations. It means that among the exact type
D spacetimes there exists a new family of spacetimes that generalize the
properties of the Kerr- (anti) de Sitter black holes on one hand and the
Taub-NUT spacetimes on the other hand.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/773

y of a Reissner-Nordström-AdS (RNAdS) black hole under perturbations of a
massive scalar field coupled to Einstein tensor. Calculating the potentia
l of the scalar perturbations we find that as the strength of the coupling
of the scalar to Einstein tensor is increasing\, the potential develops a
\nnegative well outside the black hole horizon\, indicating an instability
of the background RNAdS. We then investigate the effect of this coupling
on the quasinormal modes. We find that there exists a critical value of th
e coupling that triggers the instability of the RNAdS. We also find that a
s the charge of the RNAdS is increased towards its extremal value\, the cr
itical value of the derivative coupling is decreased.\n\nhttps://indico.ce

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Jan Ostrowski (NCBJ)\nPerturbation theories play an
important role in general relativity and cosmology. Depending on the frame
work and the quantities we perturb we can distinguish two main approaches
in perturbation theories: Eulerian and Lagrangian. Like in the Newtonian t
heory\, relativistic Lagrangian perturbations allow us to get insight into
a mildly non-linear stages of structure formation\, substantially exceedi
ng the Eulerian regime. However\, there is an inherent level of ambiguity
when it comes to evaluating certain functionals (e.g. density\, spatial cu
rvature\, expansion) within the Lagrangian framework\, coming from more th
an one definition of these fields in terms of governing equations. One pos
sible work-around is to compare the perturbative expectations with some ex
act relativistic solutions. In my talk I will present such comparison for
spherically symmetric dust solutions\, the Lemaitre-Tolman-Bondi metrics\,
with an emphasis on the evaluation of spatial curvature\, extending previ
ous works focusing mostly on density field.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/even
