Some Recent Results in Gravitational-Wave Science


Daniel Holz (University of Chicago)

Event Details

The past five years have witnessed the birth of the entirely new fields of gravitational-wave physics, astrophysics, and cosmology. We'll provide some background on this new way to probe the universe. We'll also discuss some recent results, focusing on constraints that come from a population of gravitational-wave events. Topics will include the lower (between neutron stars and black holes) and the upper (due to pair-instability supernovae) mass gaps, standard siren cosmology, and recent events including GW190814 (with a secondary object that might be a neutron star or a black hole; we're not sure which) and GW190521 (with two black holes potentially in the pair-instability mass gap).
