  • Observations of the gravitational radiation from well-localized, inspiraling compact-object binaries can measure absolute source distances with high accuracy. When coupled with an independent determination of redshift through an electromagnetic counterpart, these standard sirens can provide an excellent probe of the expansion history of the Universe and the dark energy. Short $\ensuremath{\gamma}$-ray bursts, if produced by merging neutron star binaries, would be standard sirens with known… CONTINUE READING
