We conducted a pilot study using a passive radio-wave-based home monitor in individuals with Parkinson disease (PD) with a focus on gait, home activity, and time in bed. We enrolled 7 ambulatory individuals to have the device installed in the bedroom of their homes over 8 weeks and performed standard PD assessments at baseline. We evaluated the abi...

Most cosmological data analysis today relies on the Friedmann-Lemaitre-Robertson-Walker (FLRW) metric, providing the basis of the current standard cosmological model. Within this framework, interesting tensions between our increasingly precise data and theoretical predictions are coming to light. It is therefore reasonable to explore the potential ...

Single-field models of $\alpha$-attractor quintessential inflation provide a unified picture of the two periods of early- and late-time cosmic acceleration, where both inflation and dark energy are described by a single scalar degree of freedom rolling down a runaway potential. These theoretically well-motivated models have distinct observational p...

We report results from searches for anisotropic stochastic gravitational-wave backgrounds using data from the first three observing runs of the Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo detectors. For the first time, we include Virgo data in our analysis and run our search with a new efficient pipeline called {\tt PyStoch} on data folded over one sidereal d...

A distinct signature of compact extra dimensions would be a Kaluza-Klein tower of gravitational waves. Motivated by this prospect, we compute the corresponding spectrum on a warped toroidal background. We evaluate in particular the impact of the warp factor on the spectrum. To that end, we use the complete warp factor H of standard string compactif...

The construction of constraint-satisfying initial data is an essential element for the numerical exploration of the dynamics of compact-object binaries. While several codes have been developed over the years to compute generic quasi-equilibrium configurations of binaries comprising either two black holes, or two neutron stars, or a black hole and a...

Popular wisdom amongst theoretical physicists says that spacetime is probably not a fundamental entity of nature, but rather an emergent one. While most arguments to support that view arise from very speculative ideas (usually related to attempts to understand gravity at the quantum level), the argument can also be made by only invoking standard ph...

To exploit the power of next-generation large-scale structure surveys, ensembles of numerical simulations are necessary to give accurate theoretical predictions of the statistics of observables. High-fidelity simulations come at a towering computational cost. Therefore, approximate but fast simulations, surrogates, are widely used to gain speed at ...

We analyze the Post-Newtonian orbit of stars around a deformed Kerr black hole. The deformation we consider is a class of disformal transformations of a non-trivial Kerr solution in scalar-tensor theory which are labeled via the disformal parameter $D$. We study different limits of the disformal parameter, and compare the trajectories of stars orbi...
