CECs, Centro de Estudios Científicos (Center for Scientific Studies) is a private, non-profit corporation, devoted to the development, promotion and diffusion of scientific research. CECs was founded in 1984 as the Center for Scientific Studies of Santiago and has since been directed by physicist Claudio Bunster.

Theoretical Physics



An analytical tool developed by the CECs Theoretical Physics Laboratory allows to calculate, for the first time, the gravitational effects of a black hole in the Skyrme-Einstein theory.




Gravitational lenses are one of the most powerful tools for detecting the presence of gravitational field sources (such as neutron stars and black holes). The idea, which originated in Albert Einstein's work, is very simple. The Theory of General Relativity shows that light rays are also affected by the presence of a gravitational field. Therefore, very intense sources of gravitational field are able to divert the path of light rays. These rays, without sources of gravitational fields, would have straight line trajectories.
