"Gravitational Wave Astronomy"


The recent observations of gravitational waves emitted by coalescences 
of binary compact objects like black holes and neutron stars marked the 
dawning of gravitational wave astronomy as a new science. Beyond the 
immediate and tremendous impact in Astrophysics and Cosmology, the 
consequences that the opening of this new observational window has on 
fundamental physics will be highlighted. In particular field theory 
methods, historically developed within the framework of quantum 
amplitude computations applied to particle physics, turned out to be 
useful to analytically model the dynamics of binary system, and they 
will be even more important to maximize the physics output of detections 
in the near future when more accurate observations of gravitational 
waves will be available.
