“Gravity: Newtonian, Post-Newtonian, Relativistic”, by Eric Poisson and Clifford M. Will

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Emanuele wrote a review of the new book “Gravity: Newtonian, Post-Newtonian, Relativistic”, by Eric Poisson and Clifford M. Will, that we used here at Ole Miss in the Spring 2014 for the advanced General Relativity class (Phys 629/630). The review can be found in Classical and Quantum Gravity. In short: the book is awesome!

Davide Gerosa’s research featured in the Caltech Undergraduate Research Journal

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Davide Gerosa’s research (supervised by Emanuele through a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship at Caltech in 2013) is featured in the Winter 2014 issue of CURJ, the Caltech Undergraduate Research Journal. From the editors:

CURJ is honored to partner with all of Caltech’s Student and Faculty Programs to highlight some of the cutting edge research done by four young scientists: Lisa Eshun-Wilson, Davide Gerosa, Herbert Mehnert, and Adam Ryason. Their research topics range from tissue regeneration to modeling tire-ground interactions, and the variety in their research showcases only a tiny portion of all the diverse research taking place at both Caltech and JPL.

Congratulations, Davide!

LIGO: Generations!

Friday, May 16, 2014

The LIGO group at UMiss has successfully secured NSF funding for the production of a sequel documentary to the recently released science documentary LIGO: A Passion for Understanding, directed by science filmmaker Kai Staats (Over the Sun Productions). Shooting of the new film, “LIGO:Generations” (working title), will begin June 1st at the LIGO Laboratory in Livingston, Louisiana.

Congratulations to Daniel Duddleston
