Abstract Proposed next-generation networks of gravitational-wave observatories include dedicated kilohertz instruments that target neutron star science, such as the proposed Neutron Star Extreme Matter Observatory, NEMO. The original proposal for NEMO highlighted the need for it to exist in a network of gravitational-wave observatories to ensure detection confidence and sky localisation of sources. We show that NEMO-like observatories have significant utility on their own as coincident…

Simultaneous event detection rates by electromagnetic and gravitational wave detectors in the advanced era of LIGO and Virgo

We present several estimates of the rate of simultaneous detection of the merging of a binary system of neutron stars in the electromagnetic and the gravitational wave domains, assuming that they

Radio afterglows from compact binary coalescences: prospects for next-generation telescopes

The detection of gravitational waves from a neutron star merger, GW170817, marked the dawn of a new era in time-domain astronomy. Monitoring of the radio emission produced by the merger, including

Towards an optimal search strategy of optical and gravitational wave emissions from binary neutron star coalescence

Observations of an optical source coincident with gravitational wave emission detected from a binary neutron star coalescence will improve the confidence of detection, provide host galaxy

Constraining Short Gamma-Ray Burst Jet Properties with Gravitational Waves and Gamma-Rays

Gamma-ray burst (GRB) prompt emission is highly beamed, and understanding the jet geometry and beaming configuration can provide information on the poorly understood central engine and circumburst

Constraints on the emitting region of the gamma-rays observed in GW170817

The gravitational waves from the neutron star merger event GW170817 were accompanied by an unusually weak short GRB 170817A, by an optical/IR macronova/kilonova and by a long lasting radio to X-rays

A Program for Multimessenger Standard Siren Cosmology in the Era of LIGO A+, Rubin Observatory, and Beyond

The most promising variation of the standard siren technique combines gravitational-wave (GW) data for binary neutron star (BNS) mergers with redshift measurements enabled by their electromagnetic

Science with the Cherenkov Telescope Array

The Cherenkov Telescope Array, CTA, will be the major global observatory for very high energy gamma-ray astronomy over the next decade and beyond. The scientific potential of CTA is extremely broad:

The Distance to NGC 4993: The Host Galaxy of the Gravitational-wave Event GW170817

The historic detection of gravitational waves from a binary neutron star merger (GW170817) and its electromagnetic counterpart led to the first accurate (sub-arcsecond) localization of a

Standard siren speeds: improving velocities in gravitational-wave measurements of H0

We re-analyse data from the gravitational-wave event GW170817 and its host galaxy NGC 4993 to demonstrate the importance of accurate total and peculiar velocities when measuring the Hubble constant

LSST Target-of-opportunity Observations of Gravitational-wave Events: Essential and Efficient

We present simulated observations to assess the ability of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) and the wide-fast-deep (WFD) survey to detect and characterize kilonovae—the optical emission
