Numerical Relativity as a tool for studying the Early Universe
(Journal of Gravity, 2014)
Numerical simulations are becoming a more effective tool for conducting detailed investigations into the evolution of our universe. In this article, we show how the framework of numerical relativity can be used for studying ...
A Numerical Simulation of Chern-Simons Inflation
(Advances in Astronomy, 2013)
In this work, we present results of numerical simulations of the Chern-Simons Inflation Model proposed by Alexander, Marciano and Spergel. According to this model, inflation begins with a fermion condensate interacting ...
Extracting Gravitational Waves Induced by Plasma Turbulence in the Early Universe through an Averaging Process
(Classical and Quantum Gravity 34, 2017)
This work is a follow-up to the paper, "Numerical Relativity as a Tool for Studying the Early Universe". In this article, we determine if cosmological gravitational waves can be accurately extracted from a dynamical spacetime ...
Invariants in Relativistic MHD Turbulence
(Journal of Modern Physics, 2016)
The objective of this work is to understand how the characteristics of relativistic MHD turbulence may differ from those of nonrelativistic MHD turbulence. We accomplish this by studying the ideal invariants in the ...
TESTING BINARY BLACK HOLE CODES IN STRONG FIELD REGIMES: UNDERSTANDING NUMERICAL INSTABILITIES THROUGH COMPUTATIONAL EXPERIMENTS
(LAP Lambert Academic Publishing, 2011)
In order to further our understanding of the instabilities which develop in numerical relativity codes, I study vacuum solutions of the cosmological type (T^3 topology). Specifically, I focus on the 3+1 ADM formulation of ...
What Every Successful Physics Graduate Student Should Know
This guide is intended for students who are considering pursuing a graduate school program in physics. I chose the title, “What Every Successful Physics Graduate Student Should Know” because I honestly believe that if you ...
