Gravitational wave astronomy in the next decade

In the next decade two types of gravitational wave experiments are expected to result in the direct detection of gravitational waves: Advanced ground-based interferometric detectors and pulsar timing experiments. In my talk I will describe both types of experiments and their sensitivities to various types of gravitational wave sources. I will also discuss some of the impacts of these experiments on astronomy and cosmology.
