PBH confront GW data 2021

Feb 08, 2021

This workshop will be remotely on Zoom from February 8th 2021, 13:00 (CET) to February 12th 2021, 18:30 (CET) and will bring together experts on GW sources and modelling, PBH formation and evolution, and cosmology, to discuss how the PBH scenario confronts current and future GW data.

List of topics:

  • Overview on O3 data from the LIGO/Virgo/KAGRA Collaboration
  • PBHs, stochastic GW background, and NANOGrav results
  • Current constraints, including formation mechanisms, mass and spin distributions with focus on LIGO/Virgo/KAGRA sources
  • The role of waveform systematics and priors in GW data analysis and their impact for the PBH scenario
  • Clustering and N-body PBH simulations
  • PBH merger rates
  • Non-PBH scenarios: hierarchical mergers and astro (with focus on mass-gap events)
  • Modelling accretion onto PBHs and its role on constraints
  • PBHs and dark-matter models
  • The future: ET/LISA
