Oggi, su invito degli studenti e delle studentesse di UNITiN, ho presentato i risultati della collaborazione Event Horizon Telescope. Le slides del mio seminario sono adesso disponibili in formato pdf. Il video del seminario è al momento accessibile via Facebook. Più di 300 studenti sono stati presenti all’evento che è stato anche trasmesso in diretta video via Facebook. Il lavoro svolto dall’associazione UNITiN è stato eccellente come al solito e mi ha fatto piacere partecipare.
I just gave a talk on Binary Neutron Star Mergers with Modern Microscopic Nuclear EOS at the GWEOS-2019 Workshop this February in Pisa (Italy). The talk focused mainly on the new simulations performed by my group with a new equation of state and presented also some open problems in GRMHD simulations of binary neutron star mergers.
Almudena Arcones, Marius Eichler, and I wrote a chapter for a book edited by the former EU COST Action “NewCompStar”. The chapter is titled “Electromagnetic Emission and Nucleosynthesis from Neutron Star Binary Mergers” and it is part of the book “The Physics and Astrophysics of Neutron Stars” published by Springer. In this chapter you can find a review of the current state of the art in the field of electromagnetic emission and nucleosynthesis from neutron star binaries (NS-NS and NS-BH systems).
This week I gave a lecture and a tutorial on the Einstein Toolkit at the PRACE school “HPC methods for Computational Fluid Dynamics and Astrophysics” in Rome, Italy. The slides of my lecture can be found here, while the tutorial is accessible on my web page.
The slides from my review talk on numerical simulations of binary neutron star mergers can now be found online here. The talk is part of the PSI2 workshop on “Gamma-Ray Bursts and Supernovae”.
Our recent article on the interpretation of the afterglow of GRB 170817A published on PRL has been featured on Physics by the American Physical Society.
I just announced a new postdoc position that opened recently in my group. The deadline is on March 5. More details can be found on my job page or on hyperspace.
Our contribution to the book “High Performance Computing in Science and Engineering, Garching/Munich 2016” has been published. The book can be downloaded for free in pdf format from this link. The book collects the main results from simulations run on the supercomputers at LRZ.
You can find our contribution titled “General Relativistic Simulations of Binary Neutron Star Mergers” at page 50. These simulations were run as part of our PRACE proposal “2014112625 – GRSimStar – General Relativistic Simulations of binary neutron Star mergers “.
