Acceleration produced by the mutual attraction of two masses, and of magnitude inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the two centers of mass. It is also the force imparted by the earth, moon, or a planet to an object near its surface. (From NASA Thesaurus, 1988)

The advantages of eddy current dampers over conventional fluid dampers include the ability to produce resistive forces with no contact between the components wherein damping forces are generated, resulting in a less degradable mechanism. Thus far, the apparent mass effect, referred to as inertance, in an eddy current damper employing rotational mot...

The present research represents a new, fast and easy-to-apply semi-inversion technique for the direct separation of the Bouguer gravity anomaly to its corresponding depths or thicknesses of the prior known rock formations from a borehole (as a control point). As well as the possibility of tracing these formations on the profile points to the Bougue...

From a theoretical viewpoint, dark matter is a prerequisite entity in the formation processes of large-scale structures on the cosmological (galactic) scales of space and time. The behaviours of Jeans modes for gravitational systems composed of dark and baryonic matters are restudied in the framework of Kaniadakis' statistics and kinetic theory. Th...

Our body has evolved in terrestrial gravity and altered gravitational conditions may affect the sense of body ownership (SBO). By means of the rubber hand illusion (RHI), we investigated the SBO during water immersion and parabolic flights, where unconventional gravity is experienced. Our results show that unconventional gravity conditions remodula...

In this research we developed and applied a novel data-driven approach to investigate Rayleigh-Bernard convection in a two-phase cryogenic tank under varying gravity levels. In the initial simulation, a joint CFD-multinodal technique (CMT) was employed to simulate a pressurized cryogenic tank, with the gas section developed by a multinode model and...

The holographic principle, theorized to be a property of quantum gravity, postulates that the description of a volume of space can be encoded on a lower-dimensional boundary. The anti-de Sitter (AdS)/conformal field theory correspondence or duality¹ is the principal example of holography. The Sachdev–Ye–Kitaev (SYK) model of N ≫ 1 Majorana fermions...

An overwhelming number of the scientists assume today that the general relativity theory describes the gravity correctly. Here, another description of gravitation is presented. This new description is based on three pillars: 1. an extended mechanical view based on Newton's equations, 2. an electromagnetic view based on Maxwell's equations, 3. a qua...

We investigate the dynamics of two quantum mechanical oscillator system-bath toy models obtained by truncating to zero spatial dimensions linearized gravity coupled to a massive scalar field and scalar QED.

We examine the modulus stabilization mechanism of a warped geometry model with nested warping. Such a model with multiple moduli is known to offer a possible resolution of the fermion mass hierarchy problem in the Standard Model. A six dimensional doubly warped braneworld model under consideration admits two distinct moduli, with the associated war...

Sea level changes in coastal areas significantly influence port activities (e.g., the safety of navigation). Along Italian coastlines, sea level variations are mainly due to astronomical tides (well known, due to gravitational attraction between Earth, Moon and Sun); however, during the last fifteen years, a high number of “anomalous” tides has bee...

Unimodular Gravity is an alternative to General Relativity (GR) which, however, is so closely related to the latter that one can wonder to what extent they are diﬀerent. The diﬀerent behavior of the cosmological constant in the semiclassical regimes of both frameworks suggests the possible existence of additional contrasting features. UG and GR are...

The energy-momentum-stress tensor of the Riemannian space in general relativity is found and determined as a function of the metric tensor. Within the limits of non-inertial space this tensor is equal to zero however under the Newtonian limit its value is calculated in the general theory of relativity. This allows us to include the field energy ten...

The torsion models have stood out among the proposals for an alternative description of gravity. The simplest of them, the Teleparallel theory, is equivalent to General Relativity and there are many studies dealing with its extension to more general functions of the torsion T. The purpose of our study is to consider a family of f(T) models and appl...

The existence of black holes (BHs) with masses in the range between stellar remnants and supermassive BHs has only recently become unambiguously established. GW190521, a gravitational wave signal detected by the LIGO/Virgo Collaboration, provides the first direct evidence for the existence of such intermediate-mass BHs (IMBHs). This event sparked a...

We study a perturbation theory for embedding gravity equations in a background for which corrections to the embedding function are linear with respect to corrections to the flat metric. The remaining arbitrariness after solving the linearized field equations is fixed by an assumption that the solution is static in the second order. A nonlinear diff...

The center-of-mass energy can be arbitrarily high in Schwarzschild spacetime if one considers the front collision of two particles, one of which moves along so-called white hole geodesics and another one along a black hole geodesic. This process can take place if one considers the gravitational collapse model. In this paper, we consider the well-kn...

Binary solar system objects are common and range from satellite systems with very large mass ratios $M_1/M_2$ to mass ratios very close to unity. A well-known example of a binary is the Pluto-Charon system. With Charon only eight times less massive than Pluto the question arises as for many other systems, why the mass-ratio is still close to unity....

We derive new functional renormalization group flows for quantum gravity, in any dimension. The key new achievement is that the equations apply for any theory of gravity whose underlying Lagrangian∼f(Rμνρσ) is a function of the Riemann tensor and the inverse metric. The results centrally exploit the benefits of maximally symmetric spaces for the ev...

The study of indefinite causal order has seen rapid development, both theoretically and experimentally, in recent years. While classically the causal order of two timelike separated events A and B is fixed - either A before B or B before A - this is no longer true in quantum theory. There, it is possible to encounter superpositions of causal orders...

Barrow proposed that the area law of the horizon entropy might receive a “fractal correction” $$S\propto A^{1+\Delta /2}$$ S ∝ A 1 + Δ / 2 due to quantum gravitational effects, with $$0\leqslant \Delta \leqslant 1$$ 0 ⩽ Δ ⩽ 1 measures the deviation from the standard area law. While such a modification has been widely studied in the literature, its...

The longest recognized stellar stream in the Milky Way Galaxy has an expanse of over more than half the north sky. There was a physical disturbance within the stream, 500 million years ago, which could have been the scar of a dark matter collision. Due to its proximity to the galactic center, the GD-1 stellar stream can act as an antenna for gravit...

We present here solutions of a non-linear Schrödinger equation in presence of an arbitrary linear external potential. The non-linearity expresses a self-focusing interaction. These solutions are the product of the pilot wave with peaked solitons the velocity of which obeys the guidance equation derived by Louis de Broglie in 1926. The degree of val...

We have recently developed a new understanding of probability in quantum gravity. In this paper we provide an overview of this new approach and its implications.

The three-body problem is famously chaotic, with no closed-form analytical solutions. However, hierarchical systems of three or more bodies can be stable over indefinite timescales. A system is considered hierarchical if the bodies can be divided into separate two-body orbits with distinct time and length scales, such that one orbit is only mildly...

We study the effects of velocity dispersion on the formation of primordial black holes~(PBHs) in a matter-dominated era. The velocity dispersion is generated through the nonlinear growth of perturbations and has the potential to impede the gravitational collapse and thereby the formation of PBHs.
