After almost two years I attended an in-person conference. It was the XXIV Conference of the Italian Society of General Relativity and Gravitation (SIGRAV) at the University of Urbino (Italy). I gave an invited plenary talk on “GRMHD Simulations of Compact Object Binaries”. The pdf version of my talk can be found on the conference webpage.
Our first paper on our new code Spritz has been published on Classical and Quantum Gravity. The code is also publicly available on Zenodo. This first paper presents tests in special and general relativistic magnetohydrodynamics. We are currently working on a second paper that will present our current tests of its equation of state driver and neutrino emission scheme.
The code will then be used for numerical relativity simulations of neutron star binary mergers.
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.
