Tidal Squeezing of Black Holes

October 10, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

General Relativity Seminar

Speaker: Maria Rodriguez (Utah)

Title: Tidal Squeezing of Black Holes

Abstract: Recent developments indicate that Kerr black holes do not deform when perturbed by a static external gravitational field. Relying on hidden symmetries, compelling progress has been achieved to explain that Love numbers for Kerr black holes vanish. How does the phenomenon of tidal squeezing manifest in broader contexts? An elementary presentation of dynamical tidal squeezing of Kerr black holes will be given.
