Gravitational Waves and Binary Black Holes

by Prof. Thibault DAMOUR (IHES)

mardi 31 mai 2016 de au (Europe/Paris)
at IHES ( Amphithéâtre Léon Motchane )
Le Bois Marie 35, route de Chartres 91440 Bures-sur-Yvette
Description

This talk will comprise two parts. A first part will be a (colloquium-style) presentation of the main physical aspects of the recent observation by LIGO of a gravitational-wave signal interpreted as coming from the coalescence of two black holes. The second part will explain in some detail the theoretical-physics methods that have been used to solve the (PDE) problem of the motion and gravitational radiation of a system of two coalescing black holes.

Organisé par T. Duyckaerts, Y. Martel, F. Merle, F. Planchon, P. Raphaël, J. Szeftel­ ­et N. Tzvetkov.
