Il giorno 23 Novembre presso l'aula 412 si terra' un workshop dal titolo

Gravitational-Wave Astrophysics Day
The detection of gravitational waves on August 17th by the LIGO and Virgo interferometers from the inspiral and merging of two neutron stars, and the prompt identification of the electro-magnetic counterpart from gamma rays to radio wavelengths, has ushered in a new era of multi-messenger astronomy. This offers unprecedented opportunities for new interdisciplinary studies of fundamental physics, which include 1) the nature of gravity, 2) nuclear physics at extreme densities, 3) the physics behind the universe’s most powerful events, 4) the cosmic synthesis of heavy metals, 5) cosmology. These aspects will be openly discussed in a mini-workshop, to be held at the Department of Physics and Earth Science of University of Ferrara, structured around four talks given by leading experts in the respective fields.
