On July 31 I gave a talk at the INT workshop “Observational Signatures of r-process Nucleosynthesis in Neutron Star Mergers” on “Magnetic Field Effects in the Post-Merger Phase of Binary Neutron Stars”. The slides of my talk are available online in pdf format together with the other workshop talks.
Two weeks ago I gave a plenary talk on “General Relativistic MagnetoHydroDynamic Simulations: a Review and Status Report” at the European Physical Society 44th Conference on Plasma Physics (Belfast, Northern Ireland). The pdf version of my talk is now available online.
Two weeks ago I gave a review talk on “Merging Neutron Stars as Tools for Fundamental Physics” at the S13 session on “The multifrequency gravitational wave universe” at the European Week of Astronomy and Space Science (June 26 – 30 2017, Prague, Czech Republic). The slides of my talk can be found here in pdf format.
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.
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.
All the seminars given on December 13 2016 at the “workshop on Numerical Relativity in matter spacetimes for Gravitational Wave astronomy (NRmGW)” in Valencia (Spain) are now available on YouTube. Below you can watch my talk on “Magnetic Field Effects in Neutron Star Binaries”.
The Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) has now published online my report on my latest PRACE project “GRSimStar – General Relativistic Simulations of Binary Neutron Star Mergers”. The report is written in a way that can (hopefully) be understood by the general public and includes also a short movie from one of my simulations. Enjoy!
Our paper describing fully general relativistic magnetohydrodynamics simulations of binary neutron stars with the APR4 equation of state has been now published on Classical and Quantum gravity!
With the paper we also published our gravitational wave signals, initial data, and movies.
Plus check our video abstract below!
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 “.
From June 13 to 17 we hosted the first European school of the Einstein Toolkit and its second European workshop. Approximatively 40 people attended the event from both inside and outside Europe.
