Gravitational Waves, a new way to explore the Universe

On 14 September 2015, gravitational wave detectors from the LIGO/VIRGO collaboration observed a signal from the coalescence of two black holes with masses of 36 and 29 solar masses at a distance of about 1.3 billion light-years. This extraordinary discovery opens the way in astronomy to study gravitational ...

Workshop "Topological Approaches to Intermolecular Interactions"

Revealing the chemical bonding (structure) and the reorganization of the chemical bonds (reactivity) of any molecular system forms the undisputed foundation of chemistry. Chemical interactions between a protein and a drug, or a catalyst and its substrate, self-assembly of nanomaterials, and also many ...
