Abstract: The observation of the merger of a binary black hole system from LIGO in September 2015 has opened up a new window onto the Universe. Thanks to gravitational waves emitted by massive compact objects or cataclysmic events, one can observe the Universe with a probe that is barely affected by matter. Gravitational waves provide also a unique means to test the consistency in the general relativity in the strong field regime. In my lectures I will review the state of the art of gravitational wave searches from ground based detectors, space missions, and pulsar timing arrays. In addition, I will explain the different challenges of such searches and show (with many examples) the richness of the newly emerged field of gravitational wave astronomy.

Marie-Anne Bizouard arbeitet am Laboratoire de l'Accélérateur Linéaire der Universität Paris XI.
