AstroSeminar: Prof. Ilya Mandel (Melbourne),”The promise of gravitational-wave astrophysics”. (Note the unusual time: 10 am)

This week the Wednesday Department seminar (27 Jan 2021) will be delivered by Prof. Ilya Mandel (Melbourne), at 10 am (please note the unusual time). Please find below title and abstract of his talk. If you did not receive the Teams invitation email please send me an email (er198[at]

Title: “The promise of gravitational-wave astrophysics”

Abstract: The first detections of gravitational waves from compact-object mergers have opened up new opportunities and challenges in astrophysics. I will survey the plausible formation scenarios for merging compact-object binaries. I will then describe ongoing efforts to extract the astrophysical evolution of massive stellar binaries from observations of gravitational waves emitted during mergers of the stellar remnants.
