Impact of LISA's low frequency sensitivity on observations of massive black hole mergersNov 22 2004LISA will be able to detect gravitational waves from inspiralling massive black hole (MBH) binaries out to redshifts z > 10. If the binary masses and luminosity distances can be extracted from the LISA data stream, this information can be used to reveal ... More
Effective fermion kinematics from a modified quantum gravityJun 11 2015Sep 05 2016We consider a classical fermion and a classical scalar, propagating on two different kinds of 4-dimensional diffeomorphism breaking gravity backgrounds, and we derive the one-loop effective dispersion relation for matter, after integrating out gravitons. ...

Negative Screenings in Conformal Field Theory and 2D Gravity: The Braiding MatrixApr 20 1999We consider an extension of the Coulomb gas picture which is motivated by Liouville theory and contains negative powers of screening operators on the same footing as positive ones. The braiding problem for chiral vertex operators in this extended framework ... More
High-Order Coupled Cluster Method (CCM) Formalism 2 -- "Generalised" Expectation Values: Spin-Spin Correlation Functions for Frustrated and Unfrustrated 2D AntiferromagnetsNov 27 2009Recent developments of high-order CCM have been to extend existing formalism and codes to $s \ge \frac 12$ for both the ground and excited states. In this article, we describe how "generalised" expectation values for a wide range of one- and two-body ... More
