Topic 190400

Since I start crunching for E@H I become more interested in GWs. So I found two interesting popular articles about GWs. I found them on Center for Gravitational Wave Physics website...
CGWP

Articles could be find here...
Articles

Or direct links to articles...

Article 1
Article 2

I find those articles quite interesting. Hope they will be interesting to others as well.

If someone has some other GW related articles please post in this thread. I read everything I can about GWs lately. It could be useful if we can exchange articles here.

Cheers!

You're welcome Mark. I hope

You're welcome Mark. I hope we will see some other interesting finds in this thread. It will be cool if we could "trade" articles or websites about GW here on this thread.

Cheers.

Edo, Thanks for the plug

Edo,

Thanks for the plug for the CGWP. The Gravitational Lens is supposedly written to summarize current research articles across the field for scientists in other fields, but a lot of it is pretty accessible to the public too. We also write short summaries of our own stuff.

I think it is a great idea to put links to articles into this thread. There were some collected here and scattered around a few older threads. Hopefully we can keep this one going. One way is to hit the "+" button at the bottom of the initial post. That "rates" the post, and if enough people do that it gets highlighted.

Keep 'em coming,
Ben

Ben, I spent some nice

Ben,

I spent some nice time on CGWP's website. I really enjoy reading about all the research that is conducted at the Center. You also have very nice Outreach part of the website. Summaries are very interesting too.
"Imagining the Future: Gravitational Wave Astronomy" sounds like very interesting workshop. Although other workshops that are listed on the website were certainly interesting as well, this one spark special interest to me.

I'll try to do a little search in electronic collections of articles that my Institute is subscribed to and see if I can find something about GWs. As those are academic/scholarly articles I guess if I find something it won't be as understandable as those popular science articles, but I will print them just for pure joy of having them in paper form. :-)

Cheers.

Talk given by Bruce Allen on

Talk given by Bruce Allen on behalf of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration at the 10th annual Gravitational Wave Data Analysis Workshop.

Although it is in the News section I think it could be useful to have it here with other papers, articles, talks about Gravitational Waves.

It will be really useful if we could get to other talks given at the 10th Gravitational Wave Data Analysis Workshop. I check at the website devoted to Workshop but there is no access to other talks. You can check it here...

Also, thanks to link to Bruce's talk I find one another interesting research center devoted to Gravitational Wave Astronomy...
Center for Gravitational Wave Astronomy.

I find some really interesting reading there. Enjoy it. :)

Click on the "Program" link and you'll find them. Some are PowerPoint, some are PDF. None of the LISA talks is up, but almost all from LIGO and the other ground-based interferometers are up. It might have just taken them a while to get them all posted.

By the way, Vecchio's talk on the "F-statistic" search is about an analysis that was a building block of what became E@H.

Thank you Ben for pointing to

Thank you Ben for pointing to that. Last time I check they said materials will be put online soon. Great that they already did it.

RE: New article, came out

Message 21890 in response to message 21889


I reckon that detection of gravity waves will electrify public interest when discovered, quite similiar to the discovery of the deflection of light in 1919.
It's nice to know that in some way all us E@H contributors are cogs in the 'High Gear'! The article mixes tenses, so I'm not sure who ate their breakfast! ..... :-)

Not sure how I missed this

Not sure how I missed this article when it came out, but ran across it today while following one of the 'related stories' links. It mentions both LIGO and LISA (on the second page)...
