The AEI offers a crash course on Black Holes and gravitational wave astrophysics. This course can be attended by students studying from the 5th semester Physics or Mathematics.

The spring school will first introduce general relativity; we will then discuss black holes; the final section will be about gravitational waves, and will cover in particular the recent discoveries of merging black holes and neutrons stars which were awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize of Physics.

  1. Introduction to General Relativity and the theory of black holes
  2. Gravitational waves and the LIGO/Virgo observations

The timetable is arranged to provide two blocks in the morning. In the afternoon there will be opportunities for questions and discussions.

The lectures will take place daily from 9.15 – 10.45 and 11.15 – 12.45 in the lecture hall of the main building of the Max Planck campus in Potsdam-Golm.
