PAX VII - Physics at the Extreme

Jul. 31, 2021

With the completion of the Cosmic Explorer Horizon Study and inclusion of the Einstein Telescope in the 2021 ESFRI Roadmap, the time is now ripe for a discussion of the next steps in the definition of the science case for the next generation of GW observatories. The purpose of the PAX-VII Meeting is to better understand what the requirements are for the 3G observatory network from different science perspectives. PAX is largely a discussion-based workshop with very strong involvement of participants. The program is open for everyone to attend and participate, there will be no registration fee.

Sessions: Two 90-minute sessions each day allows a total of 8 sessions.

Format: The program will consist of a few selected presentations and moderated discussion sessions. There will be ample opportunity for discussion and time to lay the foundations for new collaborations. Topics to be discussed:

  • Multimessenger astronomy
  • Black hole binaries from population III stars and beyond
  • Dense matter equation of state and the QCD phase diagram
  • Tests of gravity and fundamental physics
  • Astrophysical populations of compact objects
  • Dark matter candidates
  • Waveform and data analysis requirements
  • Cosmological parameters and backgrounds
