Event Date and Time
John Richard Ellis, King's College, London
The NANOGrav pulsar timing array has recently reported strong evidence for a stochastic signal that might be due to gravitational waves (GWs). I will discuss an interpretation based on GW emission by loops of cosmic strings that I proposed with Marek Lewicki, and the predictions it makes for observations with other GW detectors including LISA and atom interferometers. If time permits, I will also discuss how these detectors might be sensitive to other sources of GWs.
