A Roadmap to Fundamental Physics from LISA EMRI Observations

  title={A Roadmap to Fundamental Physics from LISA EMRI Observations},
  author={Pau Amaro-Seoane and Bernard F. Schutz and Carlos F. Sopuerta},
GW Notes was born from the need for a journal where the distinct communities involved in gravitation wave research might gather. While these three communities - Astrophysics, General Relativity and Data Analysis - have made significant collaborative progress over recent years, we believe that it is indispensable to future advancement that they draw closer, and that they speak a common idiom. For this GW Notes issue we have approached Carlos F. Sopuerta to write the highlight article of this… 
Doing Science with eLISA: Astrophysics and Cosmology in the Millihertz Regime
This document introduces the exciting and fundamentally new science and astronomy that the European New Gravitational Wave Observatory (NGO) mission (derived from the previous LISA proposal) will
Probes of strong-field gravity
In this thesis, I investigate several ways to probe gravity in the strong-field regime. These investigations focus on observables from the gravitational dynamics, i.e. when time derivatives are
Studies of strong-field gravity : testing the black hole hypothesis and investigating spin-curvature coupling
Observations of gravitational systems agree well with the predictions of general relativity (GR); however, to date we have only tested gravity in the weak-field limit. In the next few years,
ELGAR—a European Laboratory for Gravitation and Atom-interferometric Research
Gravitational Waves (GWs) were observed for the first time in 2015, one century after Einstein predicted their existence. There is now growing interest to extend the detection bandwidth to low
