On September 1st @MUSE discover the event to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the ECT* Research Center


Via Antonio Tambosi 85

The European Centre for Theoretical Studies in Nuclear Physics and Related Areas (ECT*) celebrates 25 years and for the occasion the event “A Journey into the Einstein Universe. Gravitational waves, black holes and neutron stars” is born.

Einstein’s theory of general relativity predicts the existence of gravitational waves, black holes, and neutron stars.  These objects, whose discovery Einstein was unable to witness, are emblematic examples of the radically different vision that his theory of gravity has introduced. Professor Luciano Rezzolla (Institute of Theoretical Physics, Frankfurt) introduces the properties of these objects and illustrates how it is possible to explore their properties using the computing power of modern supercomputers. The result will be a virtual journey inside the Einstein Universe.

The European Centre for Theoretical Studies in Nuclear Physics and Related Areas (ECT*) in Trento (Italy) provides a dedicated and structured combination of scientific activities for a large international scientific community. ECT* acts as an “intellectual” centre of competence, complementary in scope and activities to existing research facilities based at universities or experimental laboratories. It promotes coordination of European research efforts in nuclear physics and related research areas.
