70. Probing the intrinsic properties of short gamma-ray bursts using joint gravitational wave observations
Christopher Messenger (University of Glasgow)
The observation of gravitational waves (GWs) from binary neutron star mergers coincident with short gamma-ray bursts (sGRBs) is a likely scenario for the Advanced detector era. Such observations will allow us to enhance the determination of parameters governing the signals of both emission channels. When a population of such observations are accumulated it is possible to also infer...
41. Gravitational-wave transient candidate alerts: prospect and challenges for the multi-messenger astronomy
Marica Branchesi (Università di Urbino/INFN-Sezione di Firenze)
The first observation of gravitational waves by the Advanced LIGO interferometers opened a new frontier of observational astrophysics. The detection of electromagnetic signals associated with gravitational-wave observations will be crucial for giving a complete picture of the astrophysical sources and their enviroment, allowing us to probe the physics of the energetic transient phenomena in...

SVOM (Space-based multiband astronomical Variable Objects Monitor) is a Sino-French mission dedicated to the time-domain astronomy. SVOM is a highly versatile satellite to be launched in 2021, with built-in multi-wavelength capabilities, autonomous repointing and dedicated ground follow-up. The SVOM core program focuses on the detection, the localization and the characterization of the prompt...

We discuss optimal direction for follow-up observations by 1-3 m class optical/infrared telescopes which target optical/infrared counterparts of gravitational wave events detected with two laser interferometric gravitational wave detectors. The probability maps of transient sources, such like coalescing neutron stars and/or black holes, determined with two laser interferometers generally...
30. Estimating short gamma-ray burst luminosities in conjunction with gravitational wave observations
Dr Ik Siong Heng (University of Glasgow)
Progenitors of short-duration gamma-ray bursts are thought to be neutron stars coalescing with their companion black hole or neutron star. These compact binary coalescing systems are one of main targets of ground-based gravitational wave observations. In this talk, we present a Bayesian framework for combining astrophysical and gravitational wave information that allows us to probe short...
