学术研究

I am interested in understanding whether General Relativity needs improvements in extreme limits such as on very large scales and in the strong gravity regime. This involves two approaches: One is to study the theoretical consistency of possible modifications from the point of view of classical and quantum field theory; The other is to investigate whether these corrections do a better job in explaining the observational data. One simple and well-motivated correction is to let the graviton have a small mass so that gravity deviates significantly from General Relativity beyond the graviton's Compton wavelength, which may as well be the origin of the late-time cosmic acceleration (or dark energy). In the other limit, gravitational wave astronomy is becoming a powerful channel to test General Relativity in strong gravity events such as mergers of black holes and neutron stars. Additionally, I am also interested in non-topological solitons in field theory and their roles in the early universe.

(See    http://inspirehep.net/author/profile/Shuang.Yong.Zhou.1  for my research profile.)

My recent research interests:
1. Field theoretical and gravitational aspects of massive gravity;
2. Test General Relativity in the strong gravity regime with gravitational waves and other observations and using various numerical tools;
3. Graviton mass bounds;
4. Gravitational waves from the early universe.
