What my lab group is up to these days

Friday, November 16th, 2007

Here are the main things our group has been working on these days, with links to papers and posters.

Some good web sites

Friday, November 16th, 2007

Ned Wright’s Cosmology Tutorial: A great resource for all sorts of cosmology news and information.

Frequently Asked Questions about Black Holes (shameless self-promotion!)

John Baez’s web site, which is full of information about a lot of different topics in mathematical physics. The parts I’m most interested in are the ones about general relativity and gravity (and not just because I co-wrote some of it.)

For technical articles about astrophysics and cosmology, the place to go is the astro-ph arXiv.

For great astronomy pictures, you can’t beat NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day.

Update: These are now listed on the blogroll (over on the right), which is where they belong.

Hello!

Friday, November 16th, 2007

This blog is for discussion of my scientific interests, which mostly focus on big-bang cosmology and general relativity. I’ll let you know what my research students and I are up to and comment from time to time on news in astronomy and cosmology. If you have anything you want to say, leave a comment on the blog or send me e-mail.
