|Title:||GW170817: Electromagnetic Wave Observations|
|Date:||Thu, Nov 16, 2017, 13:30 - 14:30|
The first gravitational wave (GW) observationfrom a neutron star merger was successfully made for GW170817. The detection triggered electromagnetic (EM) wave observations over the entire wavelength range, which enabled the first identification of an EM counterpart of a GW source.
I review EM observations of GW170817 and discuss implications from observations and open questions.
