Scelfo, Giulio (2018) Determining the progenitors of merging black-hole binaries with general relativistic galaxy correlations. [Magistrali biennali]
Full text disponibile come:
The detection of binary black hole mergers through gravitational waves by the LIGO-Virgo instrument sparked the discussion on whether they have astrophysical or primordial origin. According to a currently popular model, primordial black holes of stellar mass could constitute a relevant fraction of the dark matter. This work aims to forecast the possibility to infer the nature of the binary black hole progenitors through cross-correlations between galaxy catalogs and gravitational wave maps.
