Speaker

Prof. Paolo Pani (Sapienza University of Rome)

Description

Gravitational-wave astronomy and new electromagnetic facilities allows us for unprecedented tests of the nature of dark compact objects and provide a novel way to search for new physics. I will give an overview of the many recent result in this area including, shadows, constraints on the multipolar structure, ringdown tests, gravitational-wave echoes, and tidal effects in binaries.
