"Gravitational Wave Detection and Parameter Estimation"

Matthew Benacquista (University of Texas)

In light of the recent detections of gravitational waves from binary black holes with LIGO/Virgo, I will discuss the physics of the generation, propagation, and detection of gravitational waves with an emphasis on parameter estimation. In particular, I will highlight the uncertainties and selection effects in the observations and the limitations in determining the origin of these sources.
