Astro-GR@Lanzhou 2021

By Pau Amaro Seoane, 2018

TOPIC

ASTROPHYSICS, GENERAL RELATIVITY, FUNDAMENTAL PHYSICS and DATA ANALYSIS

from the capture of compact objects by supermassive black holes.

Organised by Pau Amaro-Seoane, Xian Chen, Yang Jie and Yu-Xiao Liu in Lanzhou, at Lanzhou University from 12-16 July 2021.

The future of gravitational-wave astrophysics is promising. On the one hand, the ESA/NASA Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) is the future ESA-NASA Gravitational Wave Observatory. It will look for GW signals in the low-frequency band (0.1 mHz – 1 Hz), mainly from the following sources: galactic binaries, the coalescence and merger of massive black holes in galaxies at cosmological distances, the capture and inspiral of stellar compact objects into massive black holes at galactic centers and even from cosmological stochastic backgrounds. On the other hand, China is also investigating in detail the possibility of a space-borne observatory mission, which will complement LISA.

Located on the upper reaches of the Yellow River and at the geometric center of China’s continental territory, Lanzhou is the capital city of Gansu Province in northwest China and also the political, economic and cultural center of the province. It was once a key point on the ancient Silk Road and today, a hub of the Silk Road Tourism Ring. It is also known as the “Pearl of the Yellow River”, the “Summer Palace of the West” and the “Capital of Waterwheels”These days, Lanzhou is perhaps most well-known for its favorite food – Lanzhou beef noodles.
