    • Black hole dynamics in Effective Field Theory extensions to General Relativity 

      Cayuso, Ramiro (University of Waterloo, 2023-09-22)
      This thesis aims to develop and implement mathematical and numerical techniques to enable the study of deviations from General Relativity (GR) in the nonlinear regime. The focus is on studying the nonlinear dynamics of ...
    • Bosonic fields in strong-field gravity 

      Siemonsen, Nils (University of Waterloo, 2023-07-19)
      In this thesis, we investigate bosonic fields in the strong-field and highly dynamical regime of general relativity focusing specifically on the black hole superradiance process of scalar and vector fields, as well as on ...
    • Nonlinear Behavior of Unstable Black Holes in Anti-de Sitter Spacetimes 

      Bosch Gomez, Pablo (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-25)
      The nonlinear dynamics of black holes is an increasingly relevant topic of which little is known. In this thesis, we study the full nonlinear dynamics of black holes, as well as their linear behavior, and combine them ...
    • Probing High Energy Physics Through Gravitational Waves 

      Whittaker, Tim (University of Waterloo, 2021-09-22)
      Over the last few years, gravitational wave detections have become ubiquitous, giving the physics community vast information about fundamental physics. As some of the universe’s highest energy events, neutron mergers ...
    • Semi-Analytic Radiatively Inefficient Accretion Flows in General Gravity 

      Georgiev, Boris (University of Waterloo, 2018-01-05)
      The Event Horizon Telescope is capable of observing black holes on event-horizon scales and we can use it to explore deviations from General Relativity. We replicate the results of a previous study using a Newtonian ...
    • Using Black Hole Environments as Laboratories for Testing Accretion and Gravity 

      Georgiev, Boris (University of Waterloo, 2023-08-29)
      With the advent of the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), we have the ability to observe the lensed emission from hot plasmas near event horizons. It contains entangled information about the turbulent magnetohydrodynamic ...
