Kavli RISE Summer School at CTC

Centre for Theoretical Cosmology, Cambridge, UK, September 23-27, 2019

Gravitational Wave Astrophysics is at the dawn of what will become one of the great scientific endeavours of the 21st century. The Nobel Prize winning first detection of gravitational waves by LIGO in 2015 has been a revolutionary step forward in physics and astrophysics by opening a totally new window for the exploration of the Universe.

The Kavli-RISE (Research and Innovation Staff Exchange) Summer School will introduce junior scientists (graduate students and advanced undergraduate students with a background in general relativity) to a wide range of topics at the foundation of the new exciting research field of gravitational wave astronomy:

  • Black Holes and Neutron Stars
  • Numerical Relativity
  • Post-Newtonian Theory
  • Testing General Relativity
  • Electromagnetic Counterparts
  • Cosmological Sources of Gravitational Waves
  • Gravitational Wave Data Analysis
  • LISA and Pulsar Timing Arrays
  • Dark Matter Candidates
  • Exotic Compact Objects
  • Perturbation Theory
  • Black Holes and Fundamental Fields

Participants will have the opportunity to present their results in the form of a poster.

A list of speakers at the conference:

Leor Barack (Southampton)
Laura Bernard (Meudon)
Vitor Cardoso (Lisbon)
Daniel Figueroa (Lausanne)
Jonathan Gair (Edinburgh)
Carlos Herdeiro (Lisbon)
David Hilditch (Lisbon)

Matthew McCullough (CERN)

Galaxies in the Infant Universe Were Surprisingly Mature

Oct 27, 2020

Massive galaxies were already much more mature in the early universe than previously expected. This was shown by an international team of astronomers—including researchers from the Kavli Institute for Cosmology (KICC) and the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU) — who studied 118 distant galaxies with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA).

The Nobel Prize in Physics 2020

Oct 06, 2020

The Nobel Prize in Physics 2020 has been awarded to Roger Penrose, Reinhard Genzel, and Andrea Ghez, for their discoveries about one of the most exotic phenomena in the universe: the black hole.
