The Universe As Heard With Gravitational Waves

Cole Miller
University of Maryland, (USA).

The next generation of gravitational wave detectors, which will take science data within less than five years, is expected to yield unprecedented information on compact binaries involving neutron stars and black holes. These detectors also have the possibility of constraining asymmetries in rotating neutron stars, and with luck could detect gravitational waves from a supernova in our galaxy. I will discuss the science of gravitational waves and the astrophysical realm it is expected to unveil.

Este coloquio se llevará a cabo el Lunes 4/3 a las 14hs en el aula del edificio del IAFE, Ciudad Universitaria.
