What does the Advanced LIGO detection say about gravity?
Speaker(s): Nicolas Yunes
Abstract: The gravitational-wave observation GW150914 by Advanced LIGO provides the first opportunity to learn about theoretical physics mechanisms that may be present in the extreme gravity environment of coalescing binary black holes. The LIGO collaboration verified that this observation is consistent with ... read more

Quantum Gravity Effects in Black Holes and Gravitational Waves
Abstract: Quantum-gravity effects as noise for gravity-wave detectorsI discuss a mechanism that can allow Planck scale effects to manifest themselves as a source of lof-frequency noise for interferometers.  The mechanism requires a discrete formulation of dynamics at the Planck scale._______________... read more

PIRSA:10060059  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Post-Netwonian Modeling of EMRIs and IMRIs
Speaker(s): Nicolas Yunes
Abstract: Gravitational wave data analysis of compact binary systems requires the use of matched filtering. This technique cross-correlates the data stream with a certain template that characterizes the gravitational wave signal. Successful parameterestimation thus requires an accurate model of the gravitatio... read more

PIRSA:09100082  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
General Relativity on Trial: Gravitational Waves and the Parameterized Post-Einstenian Framework
Speaker(s): Nicolas Yunes
Abstract: With the imminent detection of gravitational waves by ground-based interferometers, such as LIGO, VIRGO and TAMA, pulsar timing observations, and proposed space-borne detectors, such as LISA, we must ask ourselves: how much do we trust general relativity? The confirmation of general relativity throu... read more
