    • Extended thermodynamics of Taub-NUT and Einstein-scalar spacetimes 

      Ballon Bordo, Alvaro (University of Waterloo, 2021-08-12)
      The main objective of this thesis is to summarize recent developments on the thermodynamics of both AdS Einstein-scalar spacetimes and Lorentzian Taub-NUT spacetimes. We summarize and apply well-known techniques in black ...
    • Horizon Thermodynamics from Einstein's Equation of State 

      Hansen, Devin (University of Waterloo, 2017-04-28)
      The striking resemblance between geometric theories of gravity and thermodynamics suggests a more fundamental relationship between the two seemingly distinct theories. It has been postulated that the radial Einstein ...
    • Late-universe signals in the microwave sky: extragalactic dust, electrons, and other baryonic effects 

      McCarthy, Fiona (University of Waterloo, 2021-06-07)
      This thesis collects much of the work I have done over the last four years as a PhD student. It has two focuses. Part 1 discusses gravitational radiation emitted from two maximally charged black holes in Einstein--Maxwell--dilaton ...
    • Quantum Probings of Curved Spacetimes 

      Cong, Wan (University of Waterloo, 2021-08-10)
      This thesis is divided into two parts. The first part studies the response of Unruh DeWitt detectors in different spacetimes. One of the main goals here is to demonstrate that Unruh DeWitt detectors can detect spacetime ...
