Measuring the viewing angle of GW170817 with electromagnetic and gravitational waves

11 Apr 2018 Daniel Finstad Soumi De Duncan A. Brown Edo Berger Christopher M. Biwer

The joint detection of gravitational waves (GWs) and electromagnetic (EM) radiation from the binary neutron star merger GW170817 ushered in a new era of multi-messenger astronomy. Joint GW-EM observations can be used to measure the parameters of the binary with better precision than either observation alone... (read more)
