Multi-messenger science potential with future detectors and requirements for the future network for an optimal science exploitation: Multi-messenger science potential with future detectors and requirements for the future network for an optimal science exploitation

Following detection by advanced LIGO and Virgo, gravitational wave (GW) stocks are
on the rise. Despite their enormous impact, ground based detectors are
only sensitive to GW sources in the audio band. The low frequency GW
Universe is still unexplored and future spaceborne interferometers such
as LISA and ongoing and future pulsar timing arrays (PTAs) have the
potential to probe this...
The detection of the electromagnetic (EM) emission following the gravitational wave (GW) event GW170817 opened the era of multi-messenger astronomy with GWs and provided the first direct evidence that at least a fraction of binary neutron star (BNS) mergers are progenitors of short Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRBs). GRBs are also expected to emit very-high-energy (VHE, > 100 GeV) photons, a prediction...
The last five years marked the birth of the first detections of gravitational waves and neutrinos from outside the solar system opened the era of multi-messenger astrophysics. In addition to the growing and continuously upgraded GW and neutrino facilities, many observatories in the e.m. domain (opticla, NIR, radio, X- and gamma-rays, VHE) worldwide are already partly or fully dedicated to the...
I will give a broad overview of the scientific targets of the Einstein Telescope in astrophysics, cosmology, and fundamental physics
Extreme astrophysical events can send us physical information through complementary messengers of different nature:
gravitational waves (GW), electromagnetic radiation, neutrinos or other particles.
On August 17th 2017, the first multi-messenger astrophysical source (GW170817) was revealed,
thanks to the coordinated action of gravitational wave detectors, gamma ray burst monitors and...
The discovery of the binary neutron star merger GW170817 electromagnetic counterparts has opened the era of gravitational wave+electromagnetic (GW+EM) multi-messenger astronomy.
Exploiting this breakthrough requires increasing samples to explore the diversity of the GW electromagnetic counterparts behavior, provide tighter constraints on the Hubble constant, and test fundamental physics....
