Track: GW and followup
With the detection of the binary neutron star merger GW170817 a new era of multi-messenger astronomy started. GW170817 proved that neutron star mergers are ideal laboratories to constrain the equation of state of cold supranuclear matter, to study the central engines of short GRBs, and to understand the origin and production of heavy elements. In this talk, we discuss how the last millisecond ... More

Type: Talk Session: Gravitational Waves
Track: GW and followup
In this talk I will summarize the current astrophysical results from searching for binary black hole mergers in data taken from second generation gravitational wave observatories. I will focus on estimates of binary parameters found with Bayesian inference techniques and state-of-the art waveform models which describe the inspiral, merger and ringdown phases of these coalescences. I will illustrat ... More

Last year, LIGO-VIRGO collaborations reported detection of the first neutron star merger event, GW170817, which accompanied with observations of electromagnetic counterparts from radio to gamma rays. High-energy gamma rays and neutrinos were not observed. However, the mergers of neutron stars are expected to produce these high-energy particles. In this talk, I will discuss the prospects for coinci ... More

Type: Talk Session: Gravitational Waves
Track: GW and followup
The gravitational waves from a neutron star binary inspiral carry unique information about fundamental physics in extreme conditions. I will discuss the imprints of the properties of neutron star matter on the gravitational waves, what we have learned from the neutron star binary inspiral event GW170817, and outline future prospects and challenges.

In this contribution, the search of high-energy gamma ray emission as electromagnetic counterpart of the binary neutron star merger GW170817 with the H.E.S.S. Imaging Air Cherenkov Telescopes is presented. Observations started 5.3 h after the merger and contained the counterpart SSS17a that was identified several hours later. It stands as the first data obtained by a ground-based pointing instrume ... More

Track: GW and followup
Following a Neutron star merger a jet propagates and interacts with the out owing ejecta that surrounds the merger. As a result matter is pushed around the jet to form a hot cocoon which applies pressure on the jet and potentially collimates it. The cocoon envelops the jet as long as the jet propagates within the dense ejecta. After the jet breaks out, the cocoon expands and emits radiation over ... More

Track: GW and followup
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. I will di ... More

The current generation of gravitational-wave detectors have provided a wealth of information from coalescences of binary black holes and binary neutron stars. However, even at design sensitivity these detectors are only able to observe coalescences from the local universe, out to redshifts of a few. In contrast, the next generation of longer and more sensitive gravitational-wave detectors, such as ... More
