VIRTUAL MEETING ONLY: CPC Seminar: Multi-messenger studies of binary stellar systems with the SKA

  • March 1, 2021, 2:00 pm US/Central

Speaker: Tana Joseph, U of Manchester

Abstract: The discovery of gravitational waves has opened up a new window in multi-messenger astronomy. When used in combination with traditional electromagnetic signals and other messenger particles like cosmic rays, meteorites and neutrinos, we are able to study the Universe like never before. The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) and its precursors, MeerKAT and ASKAP, can play a significant role in assisting and guiding gravitational waves studies. The sensitivity and resolution of the SKA precursors will allow us to uncover potential gravitational wave sources, thereby providing both prior and follow up information about GW sources. In this talk I will discuss how we can use MeerKAT and ASKAP to work together with GW/multi-messenger detectors to explore various astronomical phenomena.
