Multi-Messenger Data Networks: The potential and impact on the CTA science
27/05/2021 @ 9:00 AM - 10:30 PM UTC
With the first detection of an electromagnetic counterpart to a gravitational wave signal from a binary neutron star merger and the first evidence of neutrino emission from a flaring gamma-ray blazar, we experienced the beginning of the multi-messenger (MM) astronomy. Many of the candidate sources are variable or transient and thus, require fast coordinated observations. Multi-messenger networks are being developed to quickly notify the community about interesting MM events and schedule follow-up observations.
In this talk, Dr. Anna Franckowiak will briefly discuss a selection of MM source candidates and present the MM data networks AMON and AMPEL, examples that follow two different approaches. Franckowiak will also highlight opportunities for CTA.
