Speaker: Hagai Perets. Technion, Israel
Title: Novel progenitors of GW sources & type la supernovae

Hagai is an expert on gravitational dynamics ranging from planetary scales to
supermassive black holes, including transients and GW sources. Hagai is a great
speaker and has offered to show us some of their work in an informal meeting,
open to anyone interested to join. He'll show some of their recent work on
novel types of GW sources, their signatures and electromagnetic counterparts.
We also have very exciting results on the origins of type Ia supernovae that
Hagai will tell you about. Dr Silvia Toonen
