Mathematical and Computational Challenges in the Era of Gravitational Wave Astronomy

Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics, UCLA, Los Angeles (USA)
September 13 – December 17, 2021

The Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) organizes a fourteen-week-long program to discuss Mathematical and Computational Challenges in the Era of Gravitational Wave Astronomy. The program will connect efforts of the mathematical and physical sciences communities to address new challenges on the understanding of multi-messenger astronomy. This long program will involve senior and junior researchers from several communities relevant to the program.

Long Program Schedule:

– Opening Day. September 13, 2021.
– Mathematical and Computational Challenges in the Era ofGravitational Wave Astronomy
Tutorial. September 14-21, 2021.
– Workshop I: Computational Challenges in Multi-Messenger Astrophysics. October 4-8, 2021.
– Workshop II: Mathematical and Numerical Aspects of Gravitation. October 25-29, 2021.
– Workshop III: Source Inference and Parameter Estimation in Gravitational Wave Astronomy.
November 15-19, 2021.
– Workshop IV: Big Data in Multi-Messenger Astrophysics. November 29 – December 3, 2021.
– Culminating Workshop at Lake Arrowhead. December 12-17, 2021.

Interested contributors may apply for financial support to participate in the entire fourteen-week program, or a portion of it. Applications will be accepted through May 31, 2021. Mathematicians and scientists at all levels who are interested in this area of research are encouraged to apply for funding. Supporting the careers of women and minority researchers is an important component of IPAM’s mission and their applications are particularly welcomed.
