[158.01] Gravitational Wave Astronomy and Constraints on Binary Synthesis

V. Kalogera (Northwestern University)

In the coming decade gravitational-wave astronomy is expected to develop as a new field of astronomical research and exploration of the cosmos. In this talk I summarize the outcome of a recent workshop ``Imagining the Future: Gravitational Wave Astronomy" and discuss a specific example of how gravitational-wave observations could be used in the future to improve our understanding of binary evolution and compact objects.

This work is partially supported by NSF Gravitational Physics Program and a NASA ATP awards.
