This lecture by Kennefick is about binary pulsars that emit gravitational waves. These gravitational waves have not been discovered yet by direct detection (at the time of this conference, in 2008), although binary pulsars behave as if they do emit gravitational waves. Kennefick discusses a couple of leading papers in the field of gravitational waves, including the perception of their predictions and results.
