Multi-band gravitational wave signals provide a new observational probe to study a broad range of topics in cosmology and fundamental physics. We plan to discuss what can be learned from gravitational waves and how robust current techniques are. We will discuss how accurately and robustly the Hubble parameter can be measured from gravitational wave sources, what we can learn about the remaining 95% of the Universe using gravitational waves, theoretical predictions from numerical simulations and how well these can be captured in waveform models, and robust data analysis techniques that can account for waveform uncertainties.
This workshop aims to bring together active researchers and experts in the field to discuss the key questions that can be explored using multi-band gravitational-wave observations, gauge the potential sources of uncertainty as well as possible ways to mitigate them and discuss novel ideas in the area.
Perimeter Institute will make every effort to host this workshop as an in-person event. However, we reserve the right to change to an online program to align with changes in regulations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Territorial Land Acknowledgement
Perimeter Institute acknowledges that it is situated on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Neutral peoples.
Perimeter Institute is located on the Haldimand Tract. After the American Revolution, the tract was granted by the British to the Six Nations of the Grand River and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation as compensation for their role in the war and for the loss of their traditional lands in upstate New York. Of the 950,000 acres granted to the Haudenosaunee, less than 5 percent remains Six Nations land. Only 6,100 acres remain Mississaugas of the Credit land.
We thank the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Neutral peoples for hosting us on their land.
