Although gravitational waves only interact weakly with matter, their propagation is affected by a gravitational potential. If a gravitational wave source is eclipsed by a star, measuring these perturbations provides a way to directly measure the distribution of mass throughout the stellar interior. We compute the expected Shapiro time delay, amplification, and deflection during an eclipse, and show how this can be used to infer the mass distribution of the eclipsing body. We identify continuous…

Scattering from compact objects: Regge poles and the complex angular momentum method
We calculate the Regge poles of the scattering matrix for a gravitating compact body, for scalar fields and for gravitational waves in the axial sector. For a neutron-starlike body, the spectrum
Lensed or not lensed: determining lensing magnifications for binary neutron star mergers from a single detection
Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo could observe the first lensed gravitational wave sources in the coming years, while the future Einstein Telescope could observe hundreds of lensed events. It is,


Gravitational lensing of gravitational waves: A statistical perspective
In this paper, we study the strong gravitational lensing of gravitational waves (GWs) from a statistical perspective, with particular focus on the high frequency GWs from stellar binary black hole
The Wave Nature of Continuous Gravitational Waves from Microlensing
Gravitational wave predicted by General Relativity is the transverse wave of spatial strain. Several gravitational waveform signals from binary black holes and from a binary neutron star system
Prospects for observing and localizing gravitational-wave transients with Advanced LIGO, Advanced Virgo and KAGRA
The sensitivity of the LIGO network to transient gravitational-wave signals is estimated, and the capability of the network to determine the sky location of the source is studied, to facilitate planning for multi-messenger astronomy with gravitational waves.
Wave Effects in the Gravitational Lensing of Gravitational Waves from Chirping Binaries
In the gravitational lensing of gravitational waves, wave optics should be used instead of geometrical optics when the wavelength λ of the gravitational waves is longer than the Schwarzschild radius
GW170817: Observation of Gravitational Waves from a Binary Neutron Star Inspiral.
The association of GRB 170817A, detected by Fermi-GBM 1.7 s after the coalescence, corroborates the hypothesis of a neutron star merger and provides the first direct evidence of a link between these mergers and short γ-ray bursts.
Gravitational radiation and rotation of accreting neutron stars
Recent discoveries by the Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer indicate that most of the rapidly accreting (${u{M}{"705F}}$ -->${u{M}{"705F}}$ --> 10 -->−11 M${s}$ -->$t SUBgt {s}t/SUBgt $ --> yr -->−1)

It is found that previous results using template phasing accurate to 1.5PN order actually underestimated the errors in scrM, reduced mass, andspin parameters, and that for two inspiraling neutron stars, the measurement errors increase by less than 16%.
GWTC-1: A Gravitational-Wave Transient Catalog of Compact Binary Mergers Observed by LIGO and Virgo during the First and Second Observing Runs
We present the results from three gravitational-wave searches for coalescing compact binaries with component masses above 1$\mathrm{M}_\odot$ during the first and second observing runs of the

Abstract Neutron stars are excellent emitters of gravitational waves. Squeezing matter beyond nuclear densities invites exotic physical processes, many of which violently transfer large amounts of
