The Making of High-Precision Gravitational Waves — •Alessandra Buonanno — Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics, Potsdam, Germany
Solving the two-body problem in General Relativity has been crucial in observing gravitational waves from binary systems composed of black holes and neutron stars, and inferring their astrophysical and cosmological properties.
After reviewing the theoretical groundwork that has enabled these major scientific discoveries, I will discuss how these new astronomical messengers can unveil the properties of the most extreme astrophysical objects in the universe, and inform us about the nature of gravity in the highly dynamical space-time regime.
