Symposium on "New development in astrophysics through multi-messenger observations of gravitational wave sources"

2017/08/24 --- 2017/08/26

Panasonic Auditorium, Yukawa Hall, YITP , Kyoto University

Now we are at the dawn of gravitational wave physics and astronomy. The first detection of gravitational waves by aLIGO brought us a big surprise, i.e., detection of a 30 solar mass black hole binary. This is now leading to some change of the stage of research about star formation and the evolution of binaries. Black hole binaries will also provide a unique opportunity to test general relativity in the strong gravity regime. In near future, binaries including at least one neutron star will be detected. Then, we will obtain valuable information about the high density nuclear matter, emission mechanism of short gamma ray bursts, how r-process elements are accumulated in the universe and so on. To proceed the research in this direction, the intimate connection among theoretical research, gravitational wave data analysis and follow-up observations is required. This symposium is the one to give an opportunity to discuss the latest progress, current issues, and future perspective.
