The Virgo EGO Scientific Forum gathers European scientists interested Gravitation Wave detection. As one of its activities VESF organizes the 1st VESF School on Gravitational Waves as an evolution towards Europe of the Virgo-EGO-SIGRAV School, held in Cascina since 2002 until 2005.
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 topics:
|Introduction to general relativity
|Gravitational waves and detection principles
