    Title: Gravitational-wave memory effects from binary-black-hole mergers

    Abstract: Over forty detections of binary-black-hole mergers were made during the first three observing runs of the LIGO and Virgo detectors. With this larger number of measurements of increasing accuracy, many of the remarkable predictions of general relativity for strongly curved, dynamical spacetimes will be able to be studied observationally. In this talk, I will discuss one...
