Einstein Toolkit and TCAN Workshops at RIT

This week I participated at two very interesting workshops at the Rochester Institute of Technology: the Einstein Toolkit and the TCAN meeting. I gave a talk on wednesday presenting some applications of my WhiskyMHD code to binary neutron star mergers (below you can find the YouTube video of my talk).

Both workshops were successful and with very interesting discussions about the future of the Einstein Toolkit and our plan for the next year of our TCAN international collaboration funded by NASA. Many young researchers joined both meetings indicating a strong potential growth for the field of numerical relativity applied at astrophysical sources.

My latest APS talk is now available on line

My latest talk at the “April” meeting of the American Physical Society that was held in Washington DC from January 28 to 31 2017 is now available on line on the conference web page. In this talk I presented a short overview of the most important results of our latest paper on “General relativistic magnetohydrodynamic simulations of binary neutron star mergers forming a long-lived neutron star“.

That session included also other interesting talks about neutron star simulations and magnetic fields, and many of those talks can also be downloaded from the APS April meeting web page.
