The role of strong-gravity in the early universe

Josu Aurrekoetxea


The strong-field regime of gravity can play a key role in early universe cosmology phenomena such as phase transitions, reheating, and inflation. In this talk I will overview several uses of numerical relativity simulations to study these areas, highlighting their potential to shed light on fundamental physics, as well as discussing their limitations.
