Symposium on

"New development in astrophysics through multimessenger observations of gravitational wave sources"

5th annual symposium of the innovative area (MEXT Nos. 24103001, 24103006)


YITP, Kyoto University, Dec. 26 (from morning) - 28, 2016


Now we are at the dawn of gravitational wave physics and astronomy. The first detection of gravitational waves by aLIGO brought us a big surprise, i.e., detection of a 30 solar mass black hole binary. This is now leading to some change of the stage of research about star formation and the evolution of binaries. Black hole binaries will also provide a unique opportunity to test general relativity in the strong gravity regime. In near future, binaries including at least one neutron star will be detected. Then, we will obtain valuable information about the high density nuclear matter, emission mehanism of short gamma ray bursts, how r-process elements are accumulated in the universe and so on. To proceed the research in this direction, the intimate connection among theoretical research, gravitational wave data analysis and follow-up observations is required. This symmposium is the one to give an opportunity to discuss the latest progress, current issues, and future perspective.
