Nobel Prize in Physics 2017

Professors Kip S. Thorne, Rainer Weiss and Barry C. Barish were awarded 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of the gravitational waves predicted by Einstein's general theory of relativity hundred years ago. Apart from being a deep physical result, their work has also a deep mathematical component, both in the Einstein equations and in the use of wavelet analysis in extracting the signal from the noise.
