Article
Mixing between photons and low-mass bosons is well considered in the literature. The particular case of interest here is with hypothetical gravitons, as we are concerned with the direct conversion of gravitons into photons in the presence of an external magnetic field. We examine whether such a process could produce direct low-frequency radio count...

Coupling and mixing between photons and low-mass bosons is well considered in the literature, including the coupling of photons with hypothetical gravitons. In particular, we are concerned with the direct conversion of gravitons into photons in the presence of an external magnetic field. We examine whether such a process could produce direct low-fr...

The events observed by LIGO indicate the existence of a large population of intermediate mass black holes. This unexpected result lead to a resurgence in the interest in theories of the formation of primordial black holes with several studies showing that broad mass distributions can evade or satisfy the stringent constraints on monochromatic popul...

Planck stars form when a collapsing shell of matter within a black hole reaches the Planck density, roughly equivalent to the mass being compressed into a volumetric size near that of the proton, and rebounds outwards. These planck stars have been considered as accounting for both fast radio bursts and short gamma ray bursts, whilst offering a comp...

Electromagnetic radiation is known to be associated with certain gravitational waves events, i.e. the collision of binary neutron stars. Establishing this connection is non-trivial. However, if electromagnetic counterparts could be produced by directly converting gravitons into photons, then a simple smoking gun test exists linking the two events....

We verify the self-duality of Green-Schwarz supercoset sigma models on AdS$_d \times S^d $ backgrounds (d=2,3,5) under combined bosonic and fermionic T-dualities without gauge fixing kappa symmetry. We also prove this property for superstrings on AdS$_d \times S^d \times S^d$ (d=2,3) described by supercoset sigma models with the isometries governed...

We show that the string backgrounds AdS2 x S2 x T6 and AdSd x Sd x Sd x T{10 - 3d} (d = 2, 3) are self-dual under a series of bosonic and fermionic T-dualities. We do this using the fermionic Buscher rules derived by Berkovits and Maldacena, thus working at the level of the supergravity fields. This allows us to explicitly track the behaviour of th...
