Abstract:Recent first direct detection of gravitational waves opened a new window on the universe. Gravitational waves arise from small perturbations of space-time and from their characteristics it is possible to determine properties of astrophysical objects from which they originate. In this seminar Einstein equation is introduced to describe gravitational waves and ascertain their properties. Furthermore, possible astrophysical sources are presented, as well as the first directly and indirectly detected event.

Abstract:Nedavna prva neposredna detekcija gravitacijskih valov je odprla novo okno v vesolje. Gravitacijski valovi nastanejo iz majhnih motenj prostora-časa in iz njihovih značilnosti lahko določimo lastnosti astrofizikalnih teles iz katerih izvirajo. V članku je predstavljena Einsteinova enačba, ki omogoča opis gravitacijskih valov in njihovih lastnosti. Predstavljeni so tudi možni astrofizikalni izvori ter prva posredno in neposredno zaznana dogodka.
