Celia Escamilla-Rivera (Instituto de Ciencias Nucleares, Universidad Autonoma de Mexico) and Geovanny Rave (Escamilla’s master’s student) were awarded Honorable Mention in the 2023 Essay Competition of the Gravity Research Foundation for their essay “On primordial gravitational waves in Teleparallel Gravity”, https://arxiv.org/abs/2305.06987
Laurent Freidel (Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, Canada), Jerzy Kowalski-Glikman (University of Wroclaw, Poland), Robert G. Leigh (University of Illinois, USA), and Djordje Minic (Virginia Tech, USA) were awarded Honorable Mention in the 2023 Essay Competition of the Gravity Research Foundation for their essay “On the Inevitable Lightness of Vacuum”, https://arxiv.org/abs/2303.17495
which presents a new understanding of the cosmological constant problem.
Carlos Sopuerta (Institute of Space Sciences (ICE) of the National Spanish, Research Council (CSIC), Bellaterra, Barcelona, Spain), together with his colleagues José Luis Jaramillo (Institut de Mathématiques de Bourgogne (IMB), Université de Bourgogne Franche-Comté, Dijon, France) and Badri Krishnan (Institute of Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Phyiscs, Radboud University, Nijmegen, Netherlands), were awarded Honorable Mention in the 2023 Essay Competition of the Gravity Research Foundation for their essay “Universality in Binary Black Hole Dynamics: An Integrability Conjecture”, https://arxiv.org/abs/2305.08554,
where they deepen in the simplicity and universality of the waveform
of a binary black hole coalescence.
Julio Arrechea and Carlos Barceló (Institute of Astrophysics of
Andalusia) have been awarded an Honorable Mention
in the 2023 Gravity Research Foundation Awards for Essays on Gravitation
with their essay titled “Stellar equilibrium on
a physical vacuum soil” (https://arxiv.org/abs/2305.07939). This essay
explores the relevance of the quantum vacuum as a key aspect behind the
existence of new figures of stellar equilibrium.
Congratulations to all of them!
