Tidal deformations a Editor's Suggestion

Apr. 11, 2017

Our work on Testing strong-field gravity with tidal Love numbers was selected to be an Editor's Suggestion in Physical Review D. Black holes are very special objects and possess vanishing Love numbers. Based on this observation, we proposed and shown with a detailed study that tests of GR or of the black hole paradigm can be performed by measuring the tidal Lovel number of inspiralling object using gravitational-wave measurements.
