"The Changing Face of Galaxies Conference"

Ivana Ebrova (CAMK, Warsaw)

based on the 2016 CAASTRO Scientific Conference


"Gravitational wave astrophysics: the future is now"

Ilya Mandel (Birmingham University)

The first detections of gravitational waves from binary black hole mergers have opened up new opportunities and challenges in astrophysics and fundamental physics. I will describe these recent discoveries and discuss advances in the analysis and interpretation of gravitational-wave observations. I will focus on my group's efforts to extract the astrophysical evolution of massive stellar binaries from observations of gravitational waves emitted during mergers of the stellar remnants.
