Turbulent Lives: Tales of Neutron Stars
David , Radice, LIGO, Caltech,

Neutron stars live interesting and mysterious lives: from the moment they

are created in core-collapse supernovae, to the moment some of them collapse

to black-holes. In this talk, I will cover some aspects of their lives. I

will discuss their birth in core-collapse supernovae, focusing on the key

role of hydrodynamic turbulence in triggering the explosion. Then, I will

talk about the ultimate fate of neutron stars born in close binaries. I will

discuss the gravitational-wave emission during their last orbits and in the

first milliseconds after merger. Finally, I will present results from recent

studies of the neutron-rich outflows launched during neutron star mergers

and discuss some of their implications for multimessenger astronomy and

galactic chemical evolution.



We plan to broadcast these talks using TeamSpeak. Use a sub-channel of

LIGO Lab called "LIGO Seminar", which is not password protected.

NOTE: These and all other scheduled LIGO seminars are listed on the LIGO

Laboratory seminar calendar
