Strong Gravity

From the big bang to neutron stars and black holes, Perimeter research into strong gravity explores cosmic cataclysms powerful enough to warp the fabric of spacetime. Perimeter researchers in strong gravity also contribute to developments in other fields, including cosmology, quantum field theory and quantum gravity.
