WFU Expert: Theory of binary black hole collisions

Associate professor of physics Greg Cook can discuss yesterday’s news about gravitational waves – ripples in space-time – which proves part of Albert Einstein’s theory.

Cook’s main expertise is in their computer simulation and particularly the initial conditions to start those simulations and was involved in research in 2003 that involved the best researchers from around the world to focus on the initial conditions problem.

Cook has windows of availability today from 10:15 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. and then from 2:15 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
