Radial fall last 2400 years
  KTH/Nordita/SU seminar in Theoretical Physics [before December 2013]

Wednesday 29 October 2008
from 11:00 to 12:00
at FA31
Speaker : Alessandro D.A.M. Spallicci di Filottrano (Université d'Orléans)
Abstract : The radial fall through Aristotéle-s, Galilei, Newton and Einstein has constituted the reference for unveiling the nature of gravitation. For a captured star falling into a supermassive black hole, the motion is driven by the radiation emitted. In the 90s, the concept of self-force has been proposed for a point-particle moving in a curved background. Radiation reaction is to be taken into consideration to detect the gravitational waveform coming from such captures. An account on the state of the art of the subject is given.
