Bridging ALMA and SKA – the scientific potential of the largest interferometers working together

Hugo Messias
ESO, Chile

In a time when Square Kilometer Array pathfinders are already delivering the first science data-products, it is a time to go through the lessons-learned list, but also the list of science cases which will profit from combining SKA with the more mature Atacama Large (sub-)Millimeter Array (ALMA). With complementary coverage of the mm-to-radio spectrum, the scientific potential is quite impressive. I will go through numerous topics, describing our current knowledge about them and what ALMA and SKA can achieve together in the future. Some of the topics are: pulsar physics and their use for gravitational wave detection; fundamental couplings; evolution of gas content in the Universe; active galactic nuclei; or characterization of proto-planetary discs.
