The Promise of Gravitational-wave Astrophysics

Ilya Mandel (University of Birmingham) - February 12, 2017 at 12:10 pm

The first detections of gravitational waves from compact-object mergers have opened up new opportunities and challenges in astrophysics. I will describe ongoing efforts to extract the astrophysical evolution of massive stellar binaries from observations of gravitational waves emitted during mergers of the stellar remnants.

The seminar will be held in 131A Campbell Hall.
