EINSTEIN'S GIFT: Stellar Mass Black Holes in the LIGO Era

Wednesday, March 1, 2017
4:00 PM  to 5:00 PM

The discovery of gravitational waves from the coalescence of black hole binary systems in LIGO has provided the first evidence for heavy stellar mass black holes. In this talk, I will review the observational evidence for black holes in LIGO data, its astrophysical implications and the plans for the near and long term future of ground based gravitational wave detection of black hole binary coalescences.
