Introduction to EMRIs and Space-Based Gravitational Wave Detection with LISA

Time:Wed., 4:00-5:30 pm May 22-June 5, 2024

Venue:B627, Shuangqing Complex Building A 清华大学双清综合楼A座 B627 ; Zoom Meeting ID: 687 513 9542 Passcode: YMSC

Speaker:Pau Amaro Seoane (Universitat Politècnica de València)


This course offers an introduction to extreme-mass ratio inspirals (EMRIs) and their study through the LISA mission. Students will explore the theoretical aspects of astrophysical relativity relevant to the generation, evolution and detection of gravitational waves. We will examine the scientific benefits of EMRIs from the viewpoint of fundamental physics, astrophysics, and applied mathematics. We also address the main points of the observational strategies and analysis techniques.

      Mini Course on Wave Turbulence | Recent progress on mathematical theory of wave turbulence

      AbstractThe theory of wave turbulence is the statistical theory of interacting waves, or the wave analog of Boltzmann's kinetic theory. It started in the works of Peierls in the 1920s, and has had substantial developments in the 20th century, with significant applications in science. The mathematical study of this subject started with the early works of Spohn and Erdös-Yau et al. on linear mode...
