"Measurements with gravitational-wave observations: from the heavy metals production to the Universe expansion "


(CANCELLED) Hsin-Yu Chen , MIT - Massachusetts Institute of Technology
[Host: Alexander Saffer]
ABSTRACT:

Over last six years, the observation of gravitational-wave signals from compact binary mergers have significantly expanded our knowledge in physics and astronomy. In this talk, I will discuss what we learned in cosmology, nuclear physics, and heavy-elements production from LIGO-Virgo observations. I will then discuss the future aspects and a few challenges in these areas.
