Joining the GW/EM Skies

Below is some suggested further reading related to our AAS Special Session 329, “Joining the GW/EM Skies” (AAS 221, Jan 9th 2012, 2pm). This list is not intended to be comprehensive, but rather a starting point for learning more. Thanks to Jonah Kanner, Tony Piro, Andrew MacFadyen and Samaya Nissanke for suggested additions.
