About this book

This handbook provides an updated comprehensive description of gravitational wave astronomy. In the first part, it reviews gravitational wave experiments, from ground and space based laser interferometers to pulsar timing arrays and indirect detection from the cosmic microwave background. In the second part, it discusses a number of astrophysical and cosmological gravitational wave sources, including black holes, neutron stars, possible more exotic objects, and sources in the early Universe. The third part of the book reviews the methods to calculate gravitational waveforms. The fourth and last part of the book covers techniques employed in gravitational wave astronomy data analysis. This book represents both a valuable resource for graduate students and an important reference for researchers in gravitational wave astronomy.

About the authors

Cosimo Bambi is Xie Xide Junior Chair Professor at the Department of Physics at Fudan University. He received the Laurea degree from Florence University in 2003 and the PhD degree from Ferrara University in 2007. He was appointed as a postdoc at IPMU/The University of Tokyo (Japan) and at LMU Munich (Germany). He joined Fudan University at the end of 2012 under the 1000 Young Talents Program. His main research interests focus on black holes and observational tests of gravity models. He has published more than 150 papers on high impact factor refereed journals as first or corresponding author, he has over 7,000 citations, and his h-index is 46. He has published several books with Springer, either as author and editor. He has received a number of awards, including the 2018 Magnolia Silver Award for outstanding contributions to Shanghai's development and the Xu Guangqi Prize as the best Italian scholar in China.

Stavros Katsanevas is Professor Classe Exceptionnelle 2, Université Paris Denis Diderot, France. He received his PhD degree from Athens University in 1985. He was appointed as the director of the European Gravitational Observatory (EGO), the laboratory that manages the VIRGO interferometer, funded by CNRS, INFN and Nikhef in 2018. His research interest includes supersymmetry, neutrino physics, astroparticle physics, novel photodetectors and distributed systems of smart sensors, and recent achievement includes the main supersymmetry generator of the LEP experiments: SUSYGEN and supersymmetry phenomenological papers, the design of the neutrino beam from CERN to Gran Sasso, the design and realisation of a new hybrid photodetector of high sensitivity, high spatial and time resolution and the design of a very large distributed system for “intelligent” sensors for the neutrino experiment OPERA. Prof. Katsanevas has co-authored over 400 publications, in the context of more or less large experimental collaborations and a few phenomenological studies, reviews, or new detector concepts with a small number of authors.

Kostas Kokkotas is Professor at Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen, Germany, Honorary Professor at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece and Adjunct Professor at Georgia Institute of Technology, USA. He received his PhD degree from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 1988. His research is related to the study of gravitational waves sources and his specialty is the study of dynamics and stability of neutron stars and black holes.
