With the first direct observation of gravitational waves announced in February 2016, astrophysics has entered a new era. This webinar will feature experimental and theoretical developments in gravitational wave studies from the early days of this new era and new insights from these studies. 

In This Webinar, You’ll Learn

  • How gravitational waves are generated and detected.
  • What other types of signals are emitted by the events that generate gravitational waves.
  • What information we can extract by analyzing gravitational waves and their electromagnetic counterparts.
  • New theoretical models to explain events that generate gravitational waves, such as the merger of two black holes or neutron stars.
