Some new directions in cosmology and astrophysics
We revisit some modern problems on dark energy and extreme transient events, the first in cosmology at accelerations below the de Sitter scale cH, where c is the velocity of light and H is the Hubble parameter, the second as targets of opportunity for the Japanese gravitational-wave detector KAGRA in conjunction with LIGO-Virgo.
