    • At the Corner of Space and Time 

      Shoshany, Barak (University of Waterloo, 2019-12-09)
      We perform a rigorous piecewise-flat discretization of classical general relativity in the first-order formulation, in both 2+1 and 3+1 dimensions, carefully keeping track of curvature and torsion via holonomies. We show ...
    • Canonical Structure and Conservation Laws of General Relativity on Null Surfaces and at Null Infinity 

      Hopfmueller, Florian (University of Waterloo, 2021-01-12)
      The first part of this thesis addresses the canonical structure of general relativity on generic null surfaces. The pre-symplectic potential of metric general relativity, evaluated on a null surface, is decomposed into ...
    • Thermodynamics and Universality in Anisotropic Higher Curvature Spacetimes 

      Brenna, Wilson (University of Waterloo, 2016-06-16)
      In my thesis, I describe new results in the thermodynamics of black holes in two gravitational scenarios: spacetime anisotropy and higher curvature gravity. I focus on classifying the critical point of "Large Black Hole / ...
