Special Issue "Extreme Regimes of Classical and Quantum Gravity Models. Theory, Observations, and the Role of Symmetries"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2023 | Viewed by 5708
General relativity and, more in general, extended theories of gravity provide a geometric formulation of the gravitational interaction.
Reconciling gravity with quantum mechanics is one of the most profound open problems in physics. Over the last few decades, efforts in this direction have led to a broad range of classical and quantum theoretical models which have revealed exciting connections and symmetries between different aspects of gravity and quantum physics. Observational physics also fulfills a crucial role in this field, since it is entrusted with the task of validating the wide variety of proposed models.
Analyzing gravity and its symmetries in the most extreme regimes represents a tool to gain precious information on the classical and quantum aspects of the gravitational interaction. Therefore, this Special Issue is focused on original approaches to the theoretical and/or the observational investigation of either the low-energy or the high-energy regimes of classical and/or quantum gravity theories. We cordially and earnestly invite researchers to contribute their original and high-quality research papers which can inspire advances in observational and theoretical gravity physics. Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- Gravitational waves;
- Black hole and neutron star physics;
- Compact objects;
- Exotic compact objects (such as wormholes and boson stars);
- Approximation methods for the description of the N-body relativistic dynamics (such as post-Newtonian technique, numerical relativity, perturbation theory, gravitational self-force formalism);
- N-body problem in gravity theories;
- Effective-field theory approaches to quantum gravity;
- Gravity induced entanglement;
- Geometric formulations of gravity theories based on a broad use of geometric tools, such as differential geometry, geometric measure theory, and geometric algebra;
- Investigation of the global structure of spacetimes via differential and algebraic topology methods.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
