High Performance Computing in Science and Engineering (Garching/Munich 2016)

SuperMUC_book_2016Our 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 “.

Talk on “EM Counterparts of LIGO-Virgo Events” at INAF

Yesterday I attended the “INAF after GW150914” meeting in Rome. I was asked to give a short theoretical overview on electromagnetic counterparts of gravitational wave sources (pdf slides can be downloaded here). The focus of the meeting was to better understand the important role that the Italian Astrophysical Research Institute (INAF) can play in the gravitational wave era. The whole meeting was broadcasted live and you can watch it (in Italian) on INAF YouTube channel. Below instead you can listen to my talk (in Italian).

Gravitational Waves!

Today the discovery of gravitational waves was finally announced. Below you can find the video of the NSF press conference and a simple video explaining what gravitational waves are 🙂
