25 July 2016 to 05 August 2016
Madhava Lecture Hall, ICTS Bangalore

Over the last three years ICTS has been organizing successful summer/winter schools on various topics of gravitational-wave (GW) physics and astronomy. Each school from this series aimed at focussing on a particular sub-area (theory, experiment, data science, etc) of GW science. This year, the organization of such a school assumes a special significance: The first direct detection of GWs by the LIGO observatories has been announced on 11 Feb 2016. This confirms a major prediction of Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity and opens a fundamentally new observational window onto the Universe.

This year’s school will involve three graduate-level courses in theoretical GW physics.  The lectures will be given by three world leading experts -- Clifford M Will (University of Florida), B. S. Sathyaprakash (Penn State University / Cardiff University), Emanuele Berti (University of Mississippi and Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon).
