  • Abstract:

    Black holes are the elementary particles of gravity, and play a crucial role in fundamental physics, astrophysics, high energy physics and particle physics. In the last years, our ability to understand strongly nonlinear phenomena involving black holes has opened up a new Golden Age in the field. General Relativity's 100 years are being celebrated with many new developments, ranging from Cosmic Censorship tests in violent scenarios to constraints on particle physics with supermassive black holes. This project aims at understanding in full detail the relevance of black hole superradiance to constrain the masses of fundamental bosonic fields
