About IMPRS Lecture Weeks
The lecture weeks are part of the PhD students' education in Gravitational Wave Astronomy at the AEI. They take place three times per year with courses on general relativity, numerical relativity & theoretical astrophysics, statistics & data analysis, and different topics of experimental gravitational wave physics. The lectures 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 become gravitational wave astronomers knowing all the different aspects of this research field.
