Oral Presentation

Observation of Electromagnetic Waves Associated with Gravitational Wave Events

Author(s): Hyung Mok Lee (Seoul National University)

Presenter: Hyung Mok Lee (Seoul National University)

The advanced detectors of gravitational waves to be available in a few years have sufficient sensitivity to make direct detection of merging of neutron star binaries. Subsequent observation of afterglows with telescopes will enable us to identify the nature of the sources and their host galaxies. However, the angular resolution of the gravitational wave detectors is estimated to be larger than 10 degrees in diameter, so that the pointing to right position in the sky is very difficult. Well coordinated observations among several telescope with large field of view are necessary to overcome such difficulties. In this talk, I will describe the current models for the afterglows associated with gravitational wave events, and make suggestions on the possible strategies to detect the electromagnetic radiation just after the gravitational wave bursts.
