Black holes and neutron stars are the most extreme objects that can be found today in the Universe and ideal laboratories for testing fundamental physics. Thanks to new observations facilities, in the past 20 years there has been tremendous progress in our understanding of these objects and of their astrophysical environment. Recent detections of gravitational waves by the LIGO and Virgo experiments and the first image of a black hole by EHT have presented new opportunities to study these systems. While some questions have been addressed, others are still open, and new questions have arisen. The aim of this volume is to review recent progress in relativistic astrophysics and to outline future directions.
