Signatures of alternative models of gravity in the gravitational waves: the quasi-normal modes of compact objects — •Jose Luis Blazquez-Salcedo — University of Oldenburg, Oldenburg, Germany
We study the ring-down phase of gravitational waves emitted from compact objects, such as neutron stars and black holes. We consider alternative models of gravity, e.g., Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet-dilaton theory, Scalar-Tensor theory, etc. The properties of the ring-down of these objects are studied using the quasi-normal mode formalism. This allow us to calculate how the theory characterises the properties of the ring-down in each case. We compare with the standard General Relativity results, which give us possible signatures of the alternative models of gravity in the gravitational wave emission.
