Talk title: Science with future gravitational-wave detectors

Abstract: Recent gravitational wave (GW) detections with LIGO/Virgo opened a new window on the Universe, unveiling the most violent catastrophic events in the cosmos. GW astronomy is just in its infancy, the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) and Pulsar Timing Arrays (PTAs) will offer a complementary view of the GW universe in a much more extended range of frequencies, from mHz down to nHz, this will be complemented by 3G detectors on the ground and possibly other Interferometers in space such as Tian-Qin, Taiji and Decigo. I will discuss the status and science objectives of those detectors, their targeted sources and the science they will enable in the future decades.

Time: July 7, Thursday, 21:30-22:30 (CST, UTC+8)
