Neutron Stars in the Multi-Messenger Era

Sanjay Reddy

Advances in theory and simulation, and new insights from observations and experiment are beginning to reveal how neutron star properties shape and correlate different observable phenomena such as x-ray and gamma-ray bursts, core-collapse supernovae and neutron star mergers. I will discuss these developments from the perspective of a nuclear physicist and describe efforts to interpret the electromagnetic, neutrino, gravitational wave, and nucleosynthetic signatures of these most violent astrophysical phenomena. As theory and simulations confront multi-messenger observations we may be able to address some long-standing questions about the nature of matter at extreme density and its role in shaping the cosmos.
