摘 要:I will discuss possible electromagnetic (EM) counterparts of ~kHz gravitational wave (GW) sources including NS-BH mergers, NS-NS mergers, and BH-BH mergers. The possible EM signals include short-duration GRBs and afterglows, kilo-nova (merger-nova) and afterglows, as well as a more speculative possible connection with fast radio bursts. I will discuss how detections/non-detections of these counterparts for current and future LIGO/Virgo GW sources may advance our understanding of physics of compact star mergers, especially NS equation-of-state and possible charges of BHs and NSs.
