Constraints on tidal charge of the supermassive black hole at the Galactic Center with trajectories of bright stars

16 Aug 2018 Zakharov Alexander F.

As it was pointed out recently in Hees et al. (2017), observations of stars near the Galactic Center with current and future facilities provide an unique tool to test general relativity (GR) and alternative theories of gravity in a strong gravitational field regime. In particular, the authors showed that the Yukawa gravity could be constrained with Keck and TMT observations... (read more)
