ISIS-OG GdR Meeting: Open questions in signal analysis for gravitational astronomy – 8 October 2018

The first observations of advanced LIGO and Virgo mark the advent of a new gravitational astronomy, with great potential for discovery in many fields from fundamental physics to astronomy and cosmology. This will develop over the next few years as data is taken in the future and in the longer term using new ground-based instruments, such as the Einstein telescope, […]
