Spontaneous scalarization is a scenario in some scalartensor theories of gravity where nonperturbative (orderofunity strength) scalar fields can develop near neutron stars. I will explain the basics of spontaneous scalarization and how we evolve spacetimes in this theory using numerical relativity techniques. I will describe the scalartensor theory parameter space that allows large deviations from GR, and speculate on some merger cases where the gravitational signal can be analyzed to identify such deviations.
