  • Laura Cadonati Laura Cadonati

The discovery of gravitational waves from the coalescence of black hole binary systems in LIGO has provided the first evidence for heavy stellar mass black holes.

This invited talk is the first of three in the APS April Meeting's plenary session on Black Holes.

School of Physics Associate Professor Laura Cadonati will review the observational evidence for black holes in LIGO data, its astrophysical implications, and the plans for the near- and long-term future of ground-based gravitational wave detection of black hole binary coalescences.
