School targets:
To teach young physicists and engineers on gravitational waves, their astrophysical sources and on the technologies involved in their detection.
The courses will be devoted to students searching for a degree thesis argument, to PhD students and to postdocs.
The arguments of the courses will cover the following items:
09:00 - 11:00 A primer on general relativity: ...up to the Einstein equation P. Frè
11:00 - 11:30
