Galaxies and their dark-matter halos are commonly presupposed to spin. But it is an open question how this spin manifests in halos and soliton cores made of scalar dark matter (SDM, including fuzzy/wave/ultralight-axion dark matter). One way spin could manifest in a necessarily irrotational SDM velocity field is with a vortex. But recent results ha...

In this Working Paper we analyse computational strategies for using aggregated spatio-temporal population data acquired from telecommunications networks to infer travel and movement patterns between geographical regions. Specifically, we focus on hour-by-hour cellphone counts for the SA-2 geographical regions covering the whole of New Zealand. This...

As constraints on ultralight axionlike particles (ALPs) tighten, models with multiple species of ultralight ALP are of increasing interest. We perform simulations of two-ALP models with particles in the currently supported range of plausible masses. The code we modified, ultradark.jl, not only allows for multiple species of ultralight ALP with diff...

Ultralight axions (ULAs) are promising dark matter candidates that can have a distinct impact on the formation and evolution of structure on nonlinear scales relative to the cold, collisionless dark matter (CDM) paradigm. However, most studies of structure formation in ULA models do not include the effects of self-interactions, which are expected t...

The last decade has seen unprecedented effort in dark matter model building at all mass scales coupled with the design of numerous new detection strategies. Transformative advances in quantum technologies have led to a plethora of new high-precision quantum sensors and dark matter detection strategies for ultralight ($<10\,$eV) bosonic dark matter...

Scientific analyses often rely on slow, but accurate forward models for observable data conditioned on known model parameters. While various emulation schemes exist to approximate these slow calculations, these approaches are only safe if the approximations are well understood and controlled. This workshop submission reviews and updates a previousl...

In simple inflationary cosmological scenarios, the near-exponential growth can be followed by a long period in which the Universe is dominated by the oscillating inflaton condensate. The condensate is initially almost homogeneous, but perturbations grow gravitationally, eventually fragmenting the condensate if it is not disrupted more quickly by re...

We employ the Cartan-Karlhede algorithm in order to completely characterize the class of Gödel-like spacetimes for three-dimensional gravity. By examining the permitted Segre types (or P-types) for the Ricci tensor we present the results of the Cartan-Karlhede algorithm for each subclass in terms of the algebraically independent Cartan invariants a...

We describe the general inflationary dynamics that can arise with a single, canonically coupled field where the inflaton potential is a 4-th order polynomial. This scenario yields a wide range of combinations of the empirical spectral observables, $n_s$, $r$ and $\alpha_s$. However, not all combinations are possible and next-generation cosmological...

We wish to construct a minimal set of algebraically independent scalar
curvature invariants formed by the contraction of the Riemann (Ricci) tensor
and its covariant derivatives up to some order of differentiation in three
dimensional (3D) Lorentzian spacetimes. In order to do this we utilize the
Cartan-Karlhede equivalence algorithm since, in gene...

We apply the hyperboloid membrane limit to the general Kerr-AdS metrics and
their recently studied super-entropic cousins and obtain a new class of
rotating black holes, for which the rotational parameters in multiple
directions attain their maximal value---equal to the AdS radius. These new
solutions have a potential application in the description...

By employing the new ultraspinning limit we construct novel classes of black
holes with non-compact event horizons and finite horizon area and study their
thermodynamics. Our ultraspinning limit can be understood as a simple
generating technique that consists of three steps: i) transforming the known
rotating AdS black hole solution to a special co...

We will investigate the mathematical properties of four-dimensional neutral
signature Ricci flat Walker and Kundt spaces for which all of the polynomial
scalar curvature invariants vanish. To do this in an explicit manner we choose
two subcases of the Ricci-flat VSI Walker metrics to examine. To compare these
metrics we study the existence of a nul...

We will construct explicit examples of four-dimensional neutral signature Einstein Walker spaces for which all of the polynomial scalar curvature invariants are constant. We show that these Einstein Walker spaces are Kundt. We then investigate the mathematical properties of the spaces, including holonomy and universality.

We will construct explicit examples of four-dimensional neutral signature Walker (but not necessarily degenerate Kundt) spaces for which all of the polynomial scalar curvature invariants vanish. We then investigate the properties of some particular subclasses of Ricci flat spaces. We also briefly describe some four-dimensional neutral signature Ein...
