Gravitational Radiation, Luminous Black Holes, and Gamma Ray Burst Supernovae

Maurice H.P.M. van Putten, PSU QB817.V36 2005

General idea: some GRBs may be energy from the collapse into a relativistic Kerr black hole. I do no have enough general relativity knowledge to understand most of this book. The prediction is that we might see LIGO detections coincident with a GRB, but I get the impression that a detectable gravitational wave emitter probably must be in our galaxy, and probably a pair of co-rotating masses. Since supernovae occur about once every 100 years in our galaxy, and 1 in 500 beam detectable GRB energy in our direction, a LIGO detection is either very unlikely, or I don't understand the experimental predictions of this book (most likely the latter).

I'm returning it, I need other books from PSU library more urgently.
