Title Gravitational waves: a novel way to probe the universe and its particle content

Abstract


The groundbreaking detection of gravitational waves by the aLIGO collaboration has started a new era. It has not only proven that gravitational waves exist but also that we are able to detect them with an accuracy that allows to detail the features of the sources. Unprecedented knowledge on astrophysics, cosmology and particle physics can be accessed in this way.  In this talk we will provide an overview on the status of this field. We will review the general ideas about the physical processes producing gravitational waves and describe the novel knowledge that we expect to acquire in the forthcoming future. In particular, by considering some illustrative sources, we will explain how we can analyze gravitational wave signals to infer information about black hole configurations, about the first seconds of the universe, and eventually about the fundamental particles that we and our surroundings are made of.
