Gravitational waves: the future of black hole physics

Sathyaprakash, Bangalore Suryanarayana 1999. Gravitational waves: the future of black hole physics. Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy 20 (3-4) , pp. 211-220. 10.1007/BF02702353

The new millennium will witness the operation of several long-baseline ground-based interferometric detectors, possibly a space-based detector too, which will make it possible to directly observe black holes by catching gravitational waves emitted by them during their formation or when they are perturbed or when a binary consisting of black holes in-spirals due to radiation reaction. Such observations will help us not only to test some of the fundamental predictions of Einstein's general relativity but will also give us the unique opportunity to map black hole spacetimes, to measure the masses and spins of black holes and their population, etc. Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy Look Inside Share Share this content on Facebook Share this content on Twitter Share this content on LinkedIn Other actions Export citations Register for Journal Updates About This Journal Reprints and Permissions
