Speaker:Prof. Barry Barish
Organizer:Prof. Dar Arnon
Parent Event:Gravitational Waves: A New Frontier in Science
Time:14:30 - 15:30
Location:Lidow Rosen Auditorium (323)
Abstract:Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves one hundred years ago. They have been recently observed from  pairs of merging Black Holes by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO). The physics of gravitational waves, the detection technique, the observations, including latest results, and implications will all be discussed
