Speaker

Prof. Mark Hindmarsh (Sussex)

Description

In extensions of the Standard Model of particle physics, this could have been a first order phase transition, at about 10 picoseconds after the Big Bang. I will discuss the dynamics of the transition, the characteristic spectrum of gravitational radiation, and the prospects for observing the radiation at the future space-based gravitational wave detector LISA.
