Mathematical and Computational Challenges in the Era of Gravitational Wave Astronomy

Sep 13, 2021

The field of Relativistic Astrophysics has recently witnessed a major revolution with the historical Nobel-Prize-winning observation of Gravitational Waves (GWs) from a binary black hole merger and the first GW observation of the merger of two neutron stars. The latter was followed by electromagnetic detections from the ground and space triggering an unprecedented multi-instrument observational campaign. These detections have led to the beginning of GW astronomy and the era of multi-messenger astrophysics.

The program consists of opening day, tutorials, a series of workshops, and a culminating workshop at UCLA’s Lake Arrowhead Conference Center. Most participants, including several distinguished senior scientists, will be in residence at IPAM continuously for the entire period. Between the workshops there will be a program of activities, such as seminars and discussion groups, involving long-term and short-term participants as well as visitors.
