The multi-messenger view of galaxy and compact binary mergers

The historical coincident detection of gravitational waves (GWs) and electromagnetic (EM) counterparts from the binary neutron star merger event GW 170817 heralds a new era in multi-messenger astronomy. At the same time, since the first discovery of the high-energy astrophysical neutrinos in 2012 by IceCube, neutrino astrophysics has made significant progress and has started playing an increasingly important role in multi-messenger analyses. In this talk, I will present our recent results on the neutrino and EM emissions from galaxy mergers, supermassive black hole mergers, and the short gamma-ray bursts embedded in AGN disks. I will discuss implications for the ongoing and next-generation optical/gamma-ray, neutrino, and GW missions, e.g., JWST, Fermi-LAT, CTA, IceCube, IceCube-Gen2, LIGO, and LISA.
