16. APC Colloquium: Science case for GW and HEN searches (E. Waxman, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel)
Dr Shin'ichiro Ando Ando (Caltech)
Prof. Giovanni Amelino-Camelia (University of Rome "La Sapienza")
One of the subjects that has been most studied over the last decade from a quantum-gravity perspective concerns the implications of Planck-scale effects on the propagation of high-energy particles. From the crude models of the end of the 1990s the literature gradually evolved to more detailed and robust pictures, which I briefly describe. I also stress the relevance of these studies for...
Prof. Peter Mészáros (Pennsylvania State University)
I will discuss models of GRB in the light of recent Fermi and Swift data, and the implications of these for GRB as potential gravitational wave and ultra-high energy neutrino sources.
47. Prospects for gravitational waves and neutrino emission from Soft Gamma-Ray Repeaters and Anomaolous X-ray Pulsars
Dr SANDRO MEREGHETTI (INAF-IASF MILANO)
I will review the observational properties of Soft Gamma-Ray Repeaters and Anomaolous X-ray Pulsars and discuss them in the context of the magnetar model. I will also discuss the possibility of detecting GW and high energy neutrinos from these sources.
