Testing gravity with black holes

Abstract:

In this thesis, I study the ways in which modified theories of gravity might be tested for using black holes. In particular, I focus on ways in which the gravitational waves emitted during the ‘ringdown’ of a perturbed black hole may be affected.

I will develop and demonstrate the use of a framework for analysing the evolution of perturbations in arbitrary modified gravity theories in both cosmological and black hole backgrounds. I will use this to show that the characteristic Quasi...
