The recent direct detections of gravitational waves announced in 2016 are the starting point of gravitational wave Astronomy. This research project deals with several aspects related to the emission of gravitational waves by compact objects such as neutrons and black holes. The main objective is to expand the knowledge of these objects and propose tests of the theory of general relativity through the analysis of gravitational perturbations. (AU)
