"The Present and Future of Pulsar Timing Array Experiments"

Kivonatos ismertetés:
In the wake of the recent first detections of kilohertz gravitational waves (GWs) by the ground-based experiment LIGO, pulsar timing array (PTA) experiments are eager to open the next window onto the GW universe in the much lower nanohertz regime. In this talk, I will describe the present state of PTA science, focusing on recent results from the North American Nanohertz Observatory for Gravitational Waves (NANOGrav). I will also speculate on the long-term prospects of continuing to produce astrophysically interesting science, since PTA experiments require decade-long timescales to operate. In an important contrast to other GW experiments, I will make the argument that the ancillary science from PTA experiments is commensurate to their primary goals, and justifies continued investment in pushing this frontier of GW astrophysics.
