Paper by PI Postdoctoral Researcher Federico PIazza was selected for inclusion in the New Journal of Physics' "Best of 2009" collection.

A paper by PI Postdoctoral Researcher Federico Piazza, "The IR-completion of gravity: what happens at Hubble scales?" (2009 New J. Phys. 11 113050, doi: 10.1088/1367-2630/11/11/113050), has been selected for inclusion in the New Journal of Physics’  "Best of 2009" collection.

Articles were selected for their presentation of outstanding new research, receipt of the highest praise from referees and the highest number of downloads over the year. Piazza’s paper expanded on one of his previous essays, which also won an Honourable Mention in the 2009 Gravity Research Foundation Essay Competition ("Modifying Gravity in the Infra-Red by imposing an ‘Ultra-Strong’ Equivalence Principle" Int.J.Mod.Phys.D18:2181, 2009, arXiv:0904.4299).

About Perimeter Institute

Perimeter Institute is the world’s largest research hub devoted to theoretical physics. The independent Institute was founded in 1999 to foster breakthroughs in the fundamental understanding of our universe, from the smallest particles to the entire cosmos. Research at Perimeter is motivated by the understanding that fundamental science advances human knowledge and catalyzes innovation, and that today’s theoretical physics is tomorrow’s technology. Located in the Region of Waterloo, the not-for-profit Institute is a unique public-private endeavour, including the Governments of Ontario and Canada, that enables cutting-edge research, trains the next generation of scientific pioneers, and shares the power of physics through award-winning educational outreach and public engagement.
