Gravitational waves from hot young rapidly rotating neutron stars
Gravitational radiation drives an instability in the r-modes of young rapidly rotating neutron stars. This instability is expected to carry away most of the angular momentum of the star by
The Einstein Telescope: a third-generation gravitational wave observatory
Advanced gravitational wave interferometers, currently under realization, will soon permit the detection of gravitational waves from astronomical sources. To open the era of precision gravitational
Sensitivity studies for third-generation gravitational wave observatories
Advanced gravitational wave detectors, currently under construction, are expected to directly observe gravitational wave signals of astrophysical origin. The Einstein Telescope (ET), a
Modelling magnetically deformed neutron stars
Rotating deformed neutron stars are important potential sources for ground-based gravitational wave interferometers such as LIGO, GEO600 and VIRGO. One mechanism that may lead to significant
In this review we summarize the current understanding of the gravitational-wave driven instability associated with the so-called r-modes in rotating neutron stars. We discuss the nature of the
Einstein gravitational wave Telescope conceptual design study
This document describes the Conceptual Design of a third generation gravitational wave observatory named Einstein Telescope (“ET”). The design of this new research infrastructure has been realised
Towards gravitational wave asteroseismology
We present new results for pulsating neutron stars. We have calculated the eigenfrequencies of the modes that one would expect to be the most important gravitational wave sources: the fundamental
Relativistic Fluid Dynamics: Physics for Many Different Scales
The mathematical and theoretical physics underpinnings of the relativistic (multiple) fluid model are discussed, including the variational principle approach championed by Brandon Carter and his collaborators, in which a crucial element is to distinguish the momenta that are conjugate to particle number density currents.
Dynamics of perturbations of rotating black holes
We present a numerical study of the time evolution of perturbations of rotating black holes. The solutions are obtained by integrating the Teukolsky equation written as a first order in time, coupled
Mutual friction in superfluid neutron stars
We discuss vortex-mediated mutual friction in the two-fluid model for superfluid neutron star cores. Our discussion is based on the general formalism developed by Carter and collaborators, which
