Mathematisch-Physikalisches Kolloquium im Wintersemester 2021/2022

Wir möchten Sie auf das Mathematisch-Physikalische Kolloquium der Fakultät für Mathematik und Physik der Leibniz Universität Hannover hinweisen.

Die Veranstaltung findet online statt (in der StudIP-Veranstaltung "Mathematisch-Physikalisches Kolloquium" im BigBlueButton-Meeting "Kolloquium"). Bitte loggen Sie sich dazu in StudIP ein, treten Sie dieser Veranstaltung bei (ggf. nach dem Einloggen diesen Link nochmal aufrufen) und betreten Sie über den Reiter "Meetings" die BigBlueButton-Videokonferenz.

Am Dienstag, den 18.1.2022 um 17:15 Uhr spricht

Prof. Dr. Guido Müller (University of Florida)

zum Thema

Gravitational waves in the next two decades.

Abstract: The 2015 detection of gravitational waves generated by a pair of merging black holes 1.3 billion years ago was a watershed moment in science and has forever changed how we look at the universe. Since then, the nearly 100 observed events revealed a class of black holes we did not know existed while the multi-messenger detections of mergers involving neutron stars showed us that we are all made from star dust. But this is only the beginning of an exciting journey back in time using this obscure messenger of distortions in spacetime. Following an introduction to gravitational waves, a brief overview of the current status and future plans for ground-based observatories, I will focus mostly on LISA, the first space-based observatory which targets a vast range of different sources often involving one million to one hundred million solar mass black holes out to very high redshifts.
