Bishop Lecture by Feryal Ozel

The discovery of many diverse populations of neutron stars and black holes is happening at an accelerating rate. The computational advances in calculating the properties of these compact objects, their multiwavelength observations, and the new avenues of studying them with gravitational waves have led to a new understanding of their formation, evolution, and of the fundamental physics that shapes their characteristics. In this talk, I will describe these parallel advances and show how this multi faceted approach helps pin down our understanding of the evolution of massive stars, supernova explosions, and coalescing compact objects.

Followed by wine and cheese in Pupin 1332.
