Black holes as a tool to study the dynamics of spacetime, Maxence Corman, Perimeter Institute

June 17 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Antoni Maria Alcover i Sureda, UIB – room to be confirmed Spain

Black holes, through theoretical predictions or more recently observations of gravitational waves, have allowed us to gain an understanding of the strongly curved spacetime originally predicted by Einstein. Going hand in hand with this, there has been rapid development in both the theoretical and computational tools we use to study the dynamics of gravity in this strong field regime. In this talk, I will demonstrate that black holes are a unique probe of fundamental physics. I will illustrate this, by numerically solving for the…

Invited seminar at Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation – Rochester Institute of Technology

March 11 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Title: Empirically estimating the distribution of the loudest candidate from a gravitational-wave search Abstract: Searches for gravitational-wave signals are often based on maximizing a detection statistic over a bank of waveform templates, covering a given parameter space with a variable level of correlation. Results are often evaluated using a noise-hypothesis test, where the background is characterized by the sampling distribution of the loudest template. In the context of continuous gravitational-wave searches, properly describing said distribution is an open problem: current…

Gravity Seminar: Supermassive Black Holes and Merging Galaxies: Low-Frequency Gravitational Wave Detection with Pulsar Timing Arrays, Sarah Vigeland, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

February 18 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Observations have shown that nearly all galaxies harbor massive or supermassive black holes at their centers. Gravitational wave (GW) observations of these black holes will shed light on their growth and evolution, and the merger histories of galaxies. Pulsar timing arrays (PTAs) use observations of millisecond pulsars to detect low-frequency GWs with frequencies ~1-100 nHz, and can detect GWs emitted by supermassive black hole binaries, which form when two galaxies merge. In this talk, I will discuss the current status…
