RUDN specialists become participants of Marcel Grossman Meeting (MG15)

July 1 - 7, 2018, one of the oldest and most prestigious universities - University of Rome "La Sapienza" (Rome, Italy) hosts the Marcel Grossman Meeting (MG15).

July 1 - 7, 2018, one of the oldest and most prestigious universities - University of Rome "La Sapienza" (Rome, Italy) hosts the Marcel Grossman Meeting (MG15), International Conference on Recent Developments in Theoretical and Experimental General Relativity, Astrophysics and Relativistic Field Theories, the largest world platform, uniting scientists every three years in different cities of the world. In 2018, more than 900 specialists in theoretical physics take part in the conference, including Nobel laureates - Gerard 't Hooft and Steven Weinberg.

The program of the event included more than 40 plenary reports and 72 thematic sections - the whole spectrum of fundamental and experimental research in the fields of gravity, cosmology, astrophysics and field theory. Experts of RUDN Center for Gravitation, Cosmology, Astrophysics and Space Systems delivered reports: “Dynamic wormholes from nonlinear electrodynamics in GR” (K.Bronnikov), “Stabilization Of Extra Dimensions In Nonlinear Multidimensional Gravity With Multiple Factor Spaces” (S.Bolokhov) and “Can a Kerr black hole be a supercollider?” (M.Skvortsova).

RUDN University physicists analyzed the role of gravity in elementary particles formation

Gravity might play a bigger role in the formation of elementary particles than scientists used to believe. A team of physicists from RUDN University obtained some solutions of semi-classical models that describe particle-like waves. They also calculated the ratio between the gravitational interaction of particles and the interaction of their charges.

Iron Is to Blame for Carbon Dioxide Emissions from the Soil, Says a Soil Scientists from RUDN University

Iron minerals and bacteria can be the main agents of carbon dioxide emissions from the soil. A soil scientist from RUDN University made this conclusion after studying the process of organic plant waste decomposition of the micro-level. Iron and hydrogen peroxide enter into a reaction, as a result of which active oxygen forms (oxygen radicals) are formed. The radicals destroy plant waste in the soil and promote carbon dioxide emissions.
