报告题目:Gravitational waves from neutron star mergers and the nuclear equation of states
报 告 人:Francesca Gulminelli(University of Caen and LPC-Caen FRANCE)
报告时间:2018年6月8日(星期五)上午10:00-11:00
报告地点:嘉定园区学术会议中心307室
报告简介:
The recent gravitational wave detection by the LIGO-VIRGO collaboration from two merging neutron stars, and the different multi-messenger electromagnetic counterparts will be briefly reviewed from the viewpoint of the nuclear physicist. 

In particular I will show the connections between these observations and neutron star modelling, as well as the constraints that such signal gives to the nuclear equation of state.
The present status of the nuclear equation of state will be also reviewed. I will show that the collective effort of the nuclear physics community with both important advances on ab-initio calculations and new selective experiments on isovector properties, allows today to predict astrophysical observables from neutron stars and neutron star mergers with reliable error bars. Different strategies to further progress on the quantitative understanding of the gravitational wave signal will be outlined.
