bachelor's at Bacharelado Fisica from Universidade de São Paulo (1984), master's at Physic from Universidade Estadual Paulista Júlio de Mesquita Filho (1987) and doctorate at Physic from Universidade Estadual Paulista Júlio de Mesquita Filho (1992). Has experience in Physics, focusing on General Theory of Particles and Fields, acting on the following subjects: dualidade, chern-simons, duality, anyons and yang-lee. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
In this work we investigate new descriptions of spin-2 particles which have been recently suggested in the literature and futher suggestions to be made here. The problem is addressed from two point of views. First we try to classify physically sensible theories in D=4 dimensions starting with a 2nd rank tensor with at most two derivatives in the Lagrangian (2nd order models). In the sec...
Recent experiments have detected, for the first time, gravitational waves predicted by Einstein's General Relativity, henceforth Einstein-Hilbert model (EH). According to such model, the carriers of the gravitational interaction (gravitons) are spin-2 particles without any mass. However, there always exist an experimental bound for a particle mass. The gravitational waves recent experi...
A basic concept in Field Theory and Elementary Particle Physics is gauge symmetry. The most fundamental theories as the standard model (electro-weak-strong interactions), gravitational theories and even superstrings have local symmetries (gauge symmetries). Although the gauge principle leads us to an inspiring and aesthetically attractive formulation of the fundamental forces in Nature,...
In the 1970's, after adding mass to the graviton one has verified that the resulting massive gravity (MG) leads to an inconsistent deviation angle for the light beams coming from the stars as they pass close by the sun (gravitational lens), it did not matter how small is the graviton mass, this confronts with the correct prediction by Einstein's general relativity, which is massless. Th...
In the late 1990s, through the observation of supernovae light, the accelerated expansion of the universe (2011 Nobel prize) was observed. The fact that the universe is expanding was already known since the beginning of the XX century, thanks to E. Hubble. In order to explain its acceleration the concept of dark energy has been created. It represents a "repulsive force" between matter, ...
