This school is a part of the annual ICTS summer schools in gravitational wave astronomy. This year’s school will focus on the physics and astrophysics of compact objects, in particular, of neutron stars. The lectures will be given by world leading experts.
The school will involve four graduate-level courses:
1) White Dwarfs, Neutron Stars and Black Holes: G. Srinivasan (Indian Institute of Astrophysics)
2) Tides in binary star systems: Tanja Hinderer (Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics)
3) Gravitational waves from neutron stars: Nils Andersson (University of Southampton)
4) Formation and evolution of compact binaries: Tomasz Bulik (University of Warsaw)
The school is primarily meant for graduate students and postdocs in gravitational wave physics, astrophysics and related fields. A small number of highly motivated senior undergraduates can also be considered. ICTS will provide hospitality to all selected participants and travel support (by train) to domestic participants.
