Multi-messenger cosmology: What can we learn from it?

May 30, 2022

Abstract: The discovery of astrophysical gravitational waves has opened a new avenue to explore the cosmos using transients. I will discuss a few new frontiers in the field of physical cosmology and astrophysics that can be explored using gravitational wave signals detectable from the currently ongoing network of gravitational wave detectors such as LIGO/Virgo, and in the future from gravitational wave detectors such as KAGRA, LIGO-India. I will elucidate the existence of synergies between electromagnetic probes and gravitational wave probes and their importance in understanding the standard model of cosmology and the fundamental laws of physics that govern it.
