Albert Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, which is celebrating its centenary this year, predicts the existence of gravitational waves. Gravitational waves are freely propagating oscillations in the spacetime. The first direct detection of gravitational waves is expected to happen in the next few years by large laser interferometric detectors. Apart from the upcoming detectors in USA, Europe and Japan, there is an ongoing proposal to build a gravitational-wave observatory in India.
This summer school on Gravitational Wave Astronomy aims to train students and young researchers in the emerging area of gravitational-wave astronomy. The school will involve four graduate-level courses on different topics of gravitational-wave astronomy. The lectures will be given by five leading experts on these topics. The school is mainly intended for graduate students working (or starting to work) on gravitational-wave astronomy, high-energy astrophysics, cosmology and related areas. The school can also accommodate a few postdoctoral researchers working on (or planning to work on) these areas and a few highly motivated senior undergraduates.
