Gravity Initiative Lunch, Elena Giorgi | PGI, "The Teukolsky equations in Kerr-Newman spacetime"
Mon, Nov 25, 2019, 12:30 pm12:30 pm

The Kerr-Newman spacetime is the most general explicit black hole solution, and represents a stationary rotating charged black hole. Its stability to gravitational and electromagnetic perturbations has eluded a proof since the 80s in the black hole perturbation community. As put by Chandrasekhar, "the methods that have proved…

Gravity Initiative Lunch, Barak Zackay | IAS "Detecting Gravitational Waves With Disparate Detector Responses: Two New Binary Black Hole Mergers"
Mon, Nov 4, 2019, 12:00 pm12:00 pm

I will describe our continuing work for extracting the most of the LIGO-VIRGO data.
In this talk, I will discuss the process that was used to characterize the impact of non-Gaussian phenomena (so called 'Glitches')
I will then discuss the process that exploited the found properties in order to rank candidates based…
