Observing Gravitational Waves from Space
Dr. Chiara Caprini (Laboratoire Astroparticule et Cosmologie, Paris)

LIA (Laser Interferometer Space Antenna) is the space mission of the European Space Agency to observe gravitational waves. After an introduction to gravitational waves and to the recent direct detections made by Earth-based interferometers, we will describe the scientific potential of the LISA mission, in particular for what concerns cosmology and the physics of the very early universe.
