|Quantum vacuum may explain slowing of pulsar spin|
The exact conditions under which the fundamental degrees of freedom of strongly interacting matter, quarks, and gluons, described by Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), can be realized in Nature is still an open question. They certainly played a fundamental role in the very first instants of the Universe, being the quarks and gluons confined into hadrons when the temperature of the Universe d...
In this project we study the gravitational collapse of a polytropic distribution of matter out of the spherical symmetry in the characteristic formulation of general relativity. A parallelized numerical code is being developed for this purpose. For the numerical solution of the problem at hand we will make use of processing in mixed platform where CPUs (in platform OpenMPI) and GPU (in ...

The search for observational and experimental evidence for physics beyond the minimum standard model (cosmological model $\Lambda$CDM and particle physics) has been of great interest and intense research in recent years. This project has as main aim to investigate physical aspects beyond the minimum standard model related to dark energy, modified gravity, neutrinos and gravitational wav...
From the point of view of fundamental physics, compact objects are very important, because they have strong gravity, high magnetic fields and huge densities, are perhaps the only way to study physics under extreme conditions. Among these objects, the class named Anomalous X-ray pulsars (AXPs) and Soft gamma-ray repeaters (SGRs) are some of the most interesting groups of pulsars that hav...
