NWO’s Domain Science Grant for Prof. Dr. A. Mazumdar

06 April 2018

On 16 March 2018 NWO’s Domain Science announced that it has granted funding for eight proposals in the NWO Physics Projectruimte, a granting instrument for small-scale projects that propose innovative fundamental physics research that has a scientific, industrial or social urgency. One of the proposals was granted to Prof. A. Mazumdar of the VSI. His proposal "SINGULAR: Towards resolving and testing astrophysical and cosmological singularities" aims at answering one of the key fundamental problems of the Einstein’s theory of general relativity: allowing formation of singularities in the context of a blackhole and the big bang cosmology. At the singularity the very fabric of space and time ceases to exist and does not make any physical sense. SINGULAR aims at deeper understanding of ameliorating the pathologies of spacetime near such singularities. The grant allows Prof. Mazumdar to hire two postdocs.
