Khanna Gravity Research Group http://gravity.phy.umassd.edu/

Principal Investigator: Gaurav Khanna <contact/web info>

This research group works on different problems in theoretical and computational gravitational physics: Coalescence of binary black hole systems using black hole perturbation theory and estimation of the properties of the emitted gravitational radiation -- this project is of relevance to the recently established NSF LIGO laboratory and the upcoming space-borne missions that will be attempting to make a direct observation of this radiation; Loop quantum cosmology -- a study of cosmological and black hole models in the context of loop quantum gravity wherein space-time is considered discrete at a very fundamental level; Supercomputing -- High performance scientific computation. The group's research has been supported by grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF), MA Space Grant Consortium (NASA), US Air Force Research (AFRL/AFOSR), private foundations (FQXi and others) and the computer industry (Apple, IBM, Sony, Nvidia and others).
