Titolo – Gravitational-Wave Observations of Compact Binary Coalescences
Abstract – Following the successes of the first three Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo observing runs, gravitational-wave observations are bound to continue to impact astronomy, astrophysics, fundamental physics, and cosmology for the years to come. I will discuss some of the challenges and opportunities brought by modelling, detecting, and interpreting gravitational-wave signals emitted by coalescing compact binaries. These are two-body systems comprising neutron stars and black holes and are responsible for all gravitational-wave detections achieved so far.
