  • Title:Testing gravity theories and the nature of gravitational waves with binary pulsars
  • Start Date/Time:2019-02-15 / 15:30
  • End Date/Time :2019-02-15 / 16:30
    • Speaker:Dr. Paulo C.C. Freire (MPIfR)
    • Place:R521, 5F, 2nd General Building, Nat'l Tsing Hua Univ.
    • Host:Prof. Kuo-Chuan Pan (NTHU)
    • Abstract:In this talk, I will give a historical overview of the discovery of the first binary pulsar and the indirect observation of gravitational waves in the late 1970's. I then present the latest results on binary pulsar timing, focusing on the high-precision tests of different gravity theories, and a deep study of the nature of gravitational waves. Finally, I compare our results with what we might be able to gleam from future ground-based detectors of gravitational waves, like Advanced LIGO and the Einstein Telescope.
