Network in Neutrinos, Nuclear Astrophysics, and Symmetries (N3AS) Seminar
Gravitational-wave signatures of dense matter in neutron star binary inspirals
Date: Tuesday, December 6th
Time: 2:00 pm
Place: Join Zoom Meeting Meeting ID: 912 3071 4547
Speaker: Tanja Hinderer , Institute for Theoretical Physics, Utrecht University
Abstract: The gravitational waves from merging binary systems carry unique information about the internal structure of neutron stars. Extracting and interpreting this information requires accurate models based on a detailed understanding of the interplay of matter with nonlinear gravity. I will outline recent progress on going beyond the dominant tidal deformability effects and discuss examples of the impact of incorporating more realistic physics. I will conclude with an outlook onto the remaining challenges and prospects for the coming years, as gravitational-wave science continues to move towards an era of precision physics.
