Digital- & Präsenz-basierter Kurs

The observation of Gravitational waves have opened a new window into observing both the Universe and fundamental physics. Using this will require GW detections to be coupled to astrophysical phenomena observed through other messengers. This course will provide the background knowledge required for using signals provided by next generation GW detectors.
Courses in General relativity, statistical methods and astronomy are beneficial but not required.
Structure / topics / contents
* Theory of gravitational waves (GW).
* Compact objects & the generation of GW
* Optics and interferometry, LIGO/VIRGO
* Counterparts
* Scientific applications: H0, high density matter, BHs.
