  • Perimeter postdoctoral fellow Nestor Ortiz and collaborator Raissa Mendez studied neutron star pulsations to test the prevailing theory of gravity, Einstein’s general relativity, against a modification called scalar-tensor theory. They found a new family of oscillation frequencies that are not predicted by Einstein’s theory – an intriguing development that, if measured experimentally, may necessit...
