Over the last three years the International Center for Theoretical Sciences (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Bangalore, India) has been organizing summer/winter schools on various topics in gravitational-wave (GW) physics and astronomy. Each school from this series targeted a particular sub-area (theory, experiment, data science, etc) of GW science. This year’s school has special significance because of the first direct detection of GWs by the LIGO observatories. The school involves three graduate-level courses in theoretical GW physics: Gravity: Newtonian, post-Newtonian, Relativistic by Clifford M Will (University of Florida); Gravitational Astronomy by Bangalore S. Sathyaprakash (Penn State University / Cardiff University); and Black Hole Perturbation Theory by Emanuele Berti (University of Mississippi and Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon).
