Gravitational Waves, Sources, and Detectors

Publisher: arXiv 2010
Number of pages: 82
Notes of lectures for graduate students that were given at Lake Como in 1999, covering the theory of linearized gravitational waves, their sources, and the prospects at the time for detecting gravitational waves. The lectures remain of interest for pedagogical reasons, and in particular because they contain a treatment of current-quadrupole gravitational radiation that is not readily available in other sources.

This course introduces the use of semigroup methods in the solution of linear and nonlinear (quasi-linear) hyperbolic partial differential equations, with particular application to wave equations and Hermitian hyperbolic systems.

Gravitational-wave (GW) science has entered a new era. Theoretically, the last years have been characterized by numerous major advances. These lectures are envisioned to be an introductory, basic course in gravitational-wave physics.

Sir Arthur Eddington here formulates mathematically his conception of the world of physics derived from the theory of relativity. The argument is developed in a form which throws light on the origin and significance of the great laws of physics.
