The week comprises 15 lectures of three different topics of Gravitational Wave Astronomy:
- Laser Interferometry
- Thermal Noise (2 lectures, Danzmann)
- Control systems and laser stabilization (2 lectures, Willke)
- Electronics for control systems and laser stabilization (1 lecture, Heinzel)
- General Relativity (5 lectures, Schutz)
- Data Analysis (5 lectures, Papa)
- Informal students' presentations of the research groups
The lectures will provide basic knowledge in the fields of GW Astronomy which are not in the main focus of the students' reseach. Students don't have to attend the lectures of their working fields.
Participation is mandatory for all first-year students.
The lecture week will take place at the "Strandhotel Weißer Berg", Kiefernweg 20, 31535 Neustadt (see this map).
Arrival is scheduled for Sunday, August 23, at 6 p.m.
Participants from AEI Hannover should:
- take Regional train to Norddeich from Hannover Hauptbahnhof at 17:21
- get off at Neustadt am Rübenberge at 17:40
- take bus no. 835 to Wunstorf at 17:48
- get off at Mardorf Strandhotel at 18:02
You can also take your bike with you on the train from Hannover to Neustadt and go by bike from Neustadt station to the Strandhotel at Mardorf (9 km).
For participants from AEI Potsdam, a bus will be organized. Details of departure time and place will follow soon.

About IMPRS Lecture Weeks
The lecture weeks are part of the PhD students' education in Gravitational Wave Astronomy at the AEI. They take place about twice per year with lectures on general relativity, on numerical relativity and data analysis (alternating), and on different topics of experimental gravitational wave physics. Every PhD student at AEI should participate in two of these lecture weeks. The lectures are meant to teach experimental topics to the theorists and theoretical topics to the experimentalists (and broaden the knowledge in GR for all of them). This way, the PhD students should become gravitational wave astronomers knowing all the different aspects of this research field.
