About this book

The focus of his prize-winning thesis is on observations and modeling of binary millisecond pulsars. But in addition, John Antoniadis covers a wide range of observational measurements of binary compact stars systems and tests of General Relativity, like indirect measurements of gravitational wave emission and posing the most stringent constraints on Scalar-Tensor gravity theories. Among others, he presents a system that hosts the most massive neutron star known to date, which has important ramifications for strong-field gravity and nuclear physics. This impressive work was awarded the Otto-Hahn Medal of the Max-Planck Society and the Best PhD in Gravity, Particle and Atomic physics award by the German Physics Society (DPG).

About the authors

Dr. Antoniadis received his PhD in 2013 from the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität in Bonn. He now is a BEACON post-doctoral fellow at Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie working on the commissioning of a state-of-the-art receiver (BEACON) for the Effelsberg 100-m telescope. In parallel he's working on observational tests of general relativity using binary pulsars, theory and observations of pulsar companions and theoretical investigations of low-mass X-ray binaries.
He has won several prestigious awards like the Otto-Hahn Medal of the Max-Planck Society and the Best PhD in Gravity, Particle and Atomic physics award by the German Physics Society (DPG).
