Kavli Summer Program in Astrophysics 2017
Astrophysics with gravitational wave detections
The Kavli Summer Program in Astrophysics 2017 will be held at the Niels Bohr Institute
July 10 - August 18. Workshop: July 10-14.
In February of 2016, the LIGO observatory announced the first detection of gravitational waves from the merger of a pair of black holes. This has been followed by another detection and a third candidate binary black hole merger.
The 2017 program will be focused on the scientific ramifications of these gravitational wave detections. Key questions include how gravitational wave observations can improve our understanding of binary stellar evolution and the origin of compact objects.
