Recent detections of merging black hole mergers by the LIGO-Virgo Collaboration open a new era in gravitational-wave astronomy. Another prospective type of sources are the neutron-star mergers. 
Since these stellar remnants contain matter, they constitute an even richer laboratory of strong gravity, dense matter and relativistic astrophysics. I will talk about the current status of the theory and simulations, multi-messenger aspects of the data-analysis and outlook for the future.
