e-EVN follow-up of candidate electromagnetic counterparts to GW events


  • Dr. Zsolt PARAGI

Primary authors


We have established the Euro VLBI team to follow-up candidate electromagnetic counterparts to gravitational wave events with the EVN and e-MERLIN. The LIGO-VIRGO consortium and partners inform each other through private circulars. The role of VLBI is on the one hand to help filter out some candidates like Galactic transients or variable AGN that are not true counterparts, and on the other hand measure or give upper limits to the proper motion or expansion speeds to likely extragalactic counterparts.
