Non-Fierz-Pauli bimetric theory from quadratic curvature gravity on Einstein manifolds

I will show that, in four-dimensional spacetimes with an arbitrary
Einstein metric, with and without a cosmological constant, perturbative dynamical degrees of freedom in generic quadratic-curvature gravity can be decoupled into massless and massive parts. The massive part has the structure iden-ical to, modulo the

Detecting gravitational waves: from kilo-Hz to nano-Hz

I will describe three major world-wide efforts to detect gravitational waves in three 
frequency bands. In the kilo-Hz band we use ground-based detectors (LIGO/Virgo), the 
milli-Hz band is accessible from space, I will describe LISA project, and, in the nano-Hz band we use millisecond pulsars (pulsar timing array). I'll briefly describe the GW sources and detection techniques in each band.
