[Colloquium] GW astrophysics with LIGO/VIRGO data

1h

Speaker

Prof. Matias Zaldarriaga (IAS)

Description

I will describe our recent work re-analyzing the GW data made public by the LIGO collaboration. More broadly I will discuss some of the outstanding questions related to binary black hole mergers, what the data might be saying and what we might expect in the near future. I will focus on what can be inferred from the spin measurements.
