Scope of the meeting

The aim of the workshop is to assemble experts from both astrophysics and nuclear physics to discuss the physics of neutron star mergers:

  • Observations of gravitational waves and electromagnetic signals
  • Simulations of compact object mergers and their neutrino-driven winds
  • Chemical evolution and nucleosynthesis
  • Nuclear physics of the r-process: masses, lifetimes, fission
  • Neutron stars from crust to core and equation of state
  • Neutrino-matter interactions and oscillation phenomena
