Gravitational Waves from Supermassive Black Holes

2016-10-28T00:00:00Z (GMT) by di Girolamo, Tristano

In this talk, I will present the first direct detections of gravitational waves from binary stellar-mass black hole mergers during the first observing run of the two detectors of the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory, which opened the field of gravitational-wave astronomy, and then discuss prospects for observing gravitational waves from supermassive black holes with future detectors.
